Cam Belts

The cam belt and tensioner system is an essential part of your vehicle’s engine. If neglected, cam belt failure will result in catastrophic engine damage; £1000+ repair bills not uncommon. The average interval is 40-80k or three years, so if you are unsure, call us and we will happily check your specific vehicle requirements.


Without proper maintenance, worn suspension can result in increased tyre wear, unsafe handling and compromised braking capability/stability. Our suspension check should take as little as 20 minutes, so feel free to arrange yours now.

Our trained repair technicians will check the condition of all braking components, making any recommendations for renewal of brake discs, pads, drums, shoes, pipes and other components.


Most car exhaust systems are made of mild steel, which has a limited life expectancy. Corrosion from both road moisture and engine exhaust vapour will eventually form holes, which can often cause symptoms such as increased exhaust noise and a boomy tone. Call us to arrange an inspection of your exhaust system.
