Brakes, Discs & Pads
Brake performance is vital for vehicle safety. As all brake components wear and deteriorate over time, it’s essential that you get your brakes checked regularly. We offer free brake safety inspections ensuring you and your passengers remain safe on the road.

The clutch is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. One of the hardest working parts of your engine, it is made up of the clutch plate, the bearings and the pressure plate.

If your clutch is in need of immediate repairs, we can repair or replace it quickly and effectively using quality parts.

It’s important to replace your timing belt at the mileage intervals your vehicle manufacturer recommends. Every manufacturer is different, but typically, it needs to be replaced every 60,000–100,000 miles. The recommended interval for your specific vehicle can be found in your car’s owner’s manual.
Because the timing belt is made of rubber, it will wear down over time and eventually break. When it breaks, the engine will stop running or the components will be out of sync, damaging the engine.
If you don’t replace the timing belt at the recommended time, you could end up with total engine failure, broken or bent valves, cylinder head or camshaft damage, and piston and cylinder wall damage. This is not the type of situation where it’s safe to think: ‘If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.’ Replace the timing belt according to the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule to avoid thousands of euro repairing or replacing your engine.
