Wheel alignment

Our 3D wheel alignment system allows our mechanics to perform the most precise four wheel alignment on all types of vehicles. We use a high-tech computerised system to perform measurements for each wheel allowing us to adjust camber and caster to pin point accuracy.

Incorrect alignment can result in rapid and irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

Wheel alignment is generally affected by hitting potholes in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Alignment of wheels and tyres to the specification required by your vehicle is an important way to guarantee a smooth ride and to get the most out of your tyres.

Aircon Regassing

Just like most other parts of the car, air-conditioning system needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively.

Just like most other parts of the car, air-conditioning system needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively.
upto 10% of air-con gas can be lost from the system over a 12 month period. This results in it gradually becoming less effective. To ensure it works as expected we recommend your system is regassed every 2 years.

The process involves removing the old refrigerant gas and and oil form the system and then replacing it with new refrigerant and lubricant. We then go onto check the system to ensure there are no cracks or damage to the air con system that could be causing gas to leak out. The process usually only takes about an hour and is certainly worthwhile if you haven’t recharged it in the past few years. Not only will it affect fuel efficiency but bacterial build up in the system could be contributing to bad odours.

The recharge process is relatively simple and involves removing any old refrigerant gas and oil from your air-con system before replacing this with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant as per your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. A vacuum test is also performed to ensure there are no cracks or damage in your air-conditioning system that could cause the gas to leak out.

Car Diagnostic tool

All modern cars contain on-board computers that monitor or control things like emissions levels, engine temperature and even windscreen wipers. When things go wrong, these computers produce error codes which can only be read with vehicle diagnostics equipment. You may see a warning light on your dashboard, but these only give a small part of the full picture.

Our car diagnostic check picks up these errors and identifies what they mean, so component failures can be prevented before they lead to further damage or expensive repairs!

We use state-of-the-art car diagnostic test equipment and our high-level technical training means we can make sense of manufacturer fault codes and advise on any necessary repairs.

You’ll always pay a great price for our comprehensive vehicle diagnostics check – and the peace of mind is priceless.

We have a huge range of tyres in stock and available the same day, including all the leading brands, meaning we’ll have the right tyre for you at the right price. Our fitters are trained to the highest standard and our service is quality assured.

Tyres should be checked periodically to ensure they are in satisfactory condition and road worthy. We can advise if your tread is low and if so, when the tyres will need replacing.

All drivers know that putting your foot on the brake slows the vehicle down, so it comes as no surprise that this a vital component of the vehicle. Over time, brakes can fail for several reasons; a leak of fluid in the hydraulics can cause weak or failed brakes.
