Great service from this Garage. Very personable staff great information and explanation every step of the way. As a single woman did not feel unsure of honest quote which happens frequently and in fact felt very secure throughout the repair. Will certainly use again and would definitely recommend them. Thank you VRS.
Oil change fine. Follow-up jobs to hand brake and calipers were a joke. Returned twice to get hand brake sorted and ended up having to go somewhere else. And calipers were put on rear wheels shoddily. Had to return as wheels were hot. Pins were discovered as being disintegrated on all four calipers by another garage - how they didn't notice that I have no idea. The oil change was fine though.
well where do I start with my praise for everyone at VRS REPAIR SERVICES who go that extra mile to put their customers first, after being totally ripped off quote wise by the big high street exhaust companies one of which refused my car because the manifold bolts were seized,VRS came to my help within minutes of posting on the site, cost was quarter than the high street exhaust places and an extremely fast turnaround. before paying any expensive high street fitting centre costs give VRS a call you will not be dissappointed, am so pleased to find these guys. VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade

Fantastic, very thorough, i don't know Newcastle at all so it was great find the garage!

Fast work excellent price
The price only increased because I also asked for new batteries in keys. They completed the work quickly and car was back when they said it would be. Marvellous service and my car won't be going anywhere else for servicing or repair from now on. Totally recommend Gators.
Customer service was excellent from the start which made me feel confident to deal with the garage. Compliments to Steve and Lee ! They collected the car from work then returned it after - a major time saving convenience for me. Great qlty work done and at an affordable price. 1st time to deal with Gator Garage and I was so pleased with them that I'll now be taking in our 2nd family car next week. I recommend them.
Really impressive service. They did exactly as they said they would. Would definitely use them again.
If the window wipers are broken on your car it is vital that you have them repaired straight away as your view of the road will be seriously impeded should it rain.
Dirt will also build up quickly if you neglect to repair your windscreen wipers in good time.What are the most common windscreen wiper problems?
If you find that your windshield wipers are smearing water and dirt over the windshield you can resolve the problem with relative ease.
The rubber blades may be dirty, having not been cleaned for a long time, if so, simply use a cloth and soapy water to remove any dirt that has built up. A handy tip for cleaning windscreen wipers is to wipe the edge of the rubber blade with a alcohol spirit after you have rinsed the soap off, this will help to reduce streaks in the future.
Alternatively the blades may have worn down over time and no longer provide a strong wipe to the glass, in this case you will need to replace the windshield blades.
If you notice that there are beads of water sticking to the windshield regardless of the wipers running over it, the likely problem is a build up of dirt and soot on the glass.
It will not be visible to the human eye as it will be tiny particles of dirt that causes the problem.
Water beads can stick to the dirt on the glass which is why it is important to clean it regularly even if it doesn’t appear to be dirty.
While cleaning your windshield, use hot soapy water and a sponge to ensure all dirt is properly removed. However if there is a lot of dirt you may require specialised glass cleaner, furthermore, if this fails to do the trick, a wax remover may help (Make sure to avoid getting it on your paint though!)
If you notice that your windscreen wipers aren’t working effectively and they seem to struggle to move from one side of the screen to another while shuddering as they go, you need to address the problem.
Once more, a potential cause could be a build-up of dirt, pollutant, wax, oil or grease, all of which could effect the smoothness of the wipe.
Once more a good clean of the glass and wipers should help to resolve the issue.
However if this does not improve the windshield wiper problem, the wiper arm may be bent out of shape.
The best way to find out if your windscreen wiper is bent is to ensure the rubber blade is making full contact with the glass, if it isn’t then it is either worn down or is bent.
You can use a pair of pliers to straighten the bend yourself, however you should be extremely careful, as the metal will become weaker the more you manipulate it.
Remember, it is best to replace your windscreen wiper blades every year regardless of the condition they are in, as they will not be as effective, once they are older than twelve months.
Every now and again you will need to wash your windshield while driving which means engaging the water pump to spray cleaner and water onto the glass.
However, if there is dirt on your window and you can’t wash it off due to a fault, you will be putting yourself and other passenger at risk.
You may not need your window sprayed for months at a time, like during the English winter when the rain will do a good cleaning job, so you may not know there is a problem until you need the glass cleaning.
That is why it is important to check you have full functionality every few weeks so you aren’t left in a difficult situation.
One of the common issues with water fluid pumps is that they simply stop pumping and need replacement, an easy way to find out if you need a replacement is to perform a noise test.
Lift up the hud of the car and locate the nozzles where the water and washer is sprayed, from there it should be easy enough to follow the tubes to the water pump.
Once you have found the water pump, ask a friend to try and spray the windscreen with fluid, if there is noise coming from the pump but no fluid is being emitted, there is an issue with the nozzle or tubes whereas if you don’t hear a sound then the water pump is broken.
In this eventuality you will need to replace the car water pump.
With many of the systems in a car, a blown fuse can often be the problem, in which case all you have to do is replace it.
However if you replace the fuse and the window wipers still aren’t working, you will most likely have a wiring problem.
The best course of action, is to take your car into a garage in your local area as it will be incredibly difficult to diagnose exactly what the problem is unless you're an expert.
