I don't really understand this grammar. It says request, asking permission or invitation but most of the examples have neither.

The request/invitation/etc may be implied. (and I will adjust the entry to note this).

So, to use the first one:

りした調いんですが. -> the request is that you want the car to be fixed, but since that can be inferred, it does not need to be stated.

Hope this helps!
