Good question. While we regularly discuss "mechanics" liens on the Ask an Expert center - this refers to liens securing payment for construction work performed but unpaid rather than liens for unpaid work on vehicles. I'll admit the terminology is a bit confusing. So, this question is a bit outside of our area of expertise.

However, it looks like there are some great resources available on this topic elsewhere online. Here are a few articles that seem to be particularly useful: (1) How to Put a Lien on a Car; (2) Car Liens: What They Are and How They Work; (3) Vehicle Repair Shop Lien in Texas; and (4) How to Add or Remove a Lien on a Vehicle (TX Department of Motor Vehicles).

Further, if you've got specific questions, Avvo.com and JustAnswer.com provide the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from lawyers and other professionals on a wide variety of subjects - beyond construction law.
