  I have been advised that my gearbox oil needs changing why?

  Oil molecules shear over time making the lubrication properties of the oil less protective. If you have problems selecting gears or the gear change is noisy it may well be that your gearbox oil is due for renewal. Most manufacturers have a recommended service schedule for this job – Renault recommend this change every 3 years or 36, 000 miles(which ever is sooner). GEAR OIL CHANGE £42.25 (INC VAT).

  Why does my cambelt need changing?

  Years ago nearly all production cars had chains to drive the internal components on the vehicle. With the advent of more compact engines and better material technology, many manufacturers in their wisdom decided that it would be better to replace the noisy chain with a quieter “rubber” belt. This also had the advantage of being able to go through more complex angles and was easier (and cheaper) for the manufacturer to install. Unfortunately when the belts began to snap or strip and simply work their way off the rollers this caused expensive (in most cases) engine damage as the pistons can hit the valves and the sudden quietness can be very disconcerting. This is even more important with the Diesel engines and it is strongly recommended that you change this belt on a regular basis.

  I have been advised that my Anti-Freeze / Coolant needs changing why?

  Anti-Freeze loses its anti-corrosive properties overtime and can cause a build-up of sludge and rust if not changed on a regular basis. If left for extended periods of time this can cause potentially expensive problems with overheating including head gasket. COOLANT CHANGE + FLUSH £56.40 (INC VAT)

  I have been advised that my Brake Fluid needs changing why?

  Brake fluid is hygroscopic. For example it absorbs moisture from the air. Over time brake fluid becomes contaminated with excess water which lowers its boiling point and is not as easily compressed thus causing problems with brake fade. BRAKE FLUID CHANGE £58.70 (INC VAT)
