Brakes / Shock Absorbers We provide a comprehensive range of brake work, including the checking of the braking system, cleaning and the replacement of any necessary parts. This can either be incorporated in a routine service or as a specific check. Brake parts are critical for stopping the vehicle and are essential to keep in good serviceable order, not only for obvious safety reasons, but for the MoT Test too.

An under-performing or broken exhaust system can result in reduced efficiency and increased emissions, poor exhaust systems can also effect the over-all engine performance.
