Repairs

Our technicians are trained to carry out all types of repairs to your vehicles. This can be something minor such as brake pads, to major work like a head gasket replacement. All of the work is carried out in house to keep the quality of work to a high standard. Please select a repair to find out more, or call our workshop for more information.

Cam Belts

The Cambelt is a vital part of an engine that connects several moving parts allowing an engine to work. If the cambelt breaks or comes off, it can cause severe damage to the car's engine which, in turn, will lead to an expensive repair bill!

Your manufacturer will insist that the cambelt on your car is replaced once its engine has travelled a specific distance (a typical example is 36,000 miles), or once the vehicle has reached a certain age (a typical example is 4/5 years). Failure to do so can result in belt failure and an expensive repair.

Brakes

A brake is an object or device used to apply force to a moving object in order to reduce its motion and bring it to a halt. Brakes used on vehicles commonly bring a moving surface into contact with a stationary surface to generate friction, which slows and eventually stops the vehicle. The brakes used on cars at the beginning of the 21st century are usually either disc or drum brakes, with some manufacturers choosing a combination of the two.

Do you know that even a very minor problem with the brake system can make a vehicle unsafe to drive? For example, a cracked brake hose or rusty brake line can cause brakes to fail unexpectedly.

Head Gaskets

A head gasket is a gasket that sits between the engine block and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine. Its purpose is to seal the cylinders to ensure maximum compression and avoid leakage of coolant or engine oil into the cylinders; as such, it is the most critical sealing application in any engine, and, as part of the combustion chamber, it shares the same strength requirements as other combustion chamber components.

Clutches

The most common problem with clutches is that the friction material on the disc wears out. The friction material on a clutch disc is very similar to the friction material on the pads of a disc brake or the shoes of a drum brake -- after a while, it wears away. When most or all of the friction material is gone, the clutch will start to slip, and eventually it won't transmit any power from the engine to the wheels.

The clutch only wears while the clutch disc and the flywheel are spinning at different speeds. When they are locked together, the friction material is held tightly against the flywheel, and they spin in sync. It's only when the clutch disc is slipping against the flywheel that wearing occurs. So, if you are the type of driver who slips the clutch a lot, you'll wear out your clutch a lot faster.
