Get a great-value Air-Conditioning Recharge with Who Can Fix My Car.
Excellent service and workmanship, I was made to feel a valued customer.
Great service got my car picked up did the work required to a high standard very polite and helpful informed at every part of work needed and price
I chose this garage from the previous reviews and they were not wrong. Patrick collected the car as requested on date and time agreed. From then onwards he was in contact to regards on the work that needed to be done. All the work was carried out to a very high standard. I am very pleased with the service provided and the total cost of the work carried out as there was additional work needed. Thank you to Patrick and the team for an excellent job and excellent service provided. I highly recommend this garage and will certainly be using them again.
Patrick is honest, transparent and reliable. I had a knocking noise from the front ns wheel, so while I was having this investigated I had the Cam belt and water pump changed as it was due. The cam belt was changed very quickly, but we had to wait for the parts for a suspected worn drive shaft. Whilst waiting for the part, Patrick went through all other alternative reasons for the knocking noise. Although it did indeed end up being a worn driveshaft, it was refreshing that Patrick troubleshooted all other avenues in case it was a more simple fix, at no extra cost. In regards to costs, Patrick is more than competitive. Having been quoted £480 for Cam belt only and £533 for a new ns driveshaft, £641 all in is phenomenal. The collection and delivery service is unmatched by any other garage I have ever visited. I would not hesitate to recommended Patrick, and will be using him in future for any requirements my car has. Honestly, you will not be disappointed with Patrick.
Porsche expert and top-notch professional and personal service. Have definitely found my Porsche garage for all future requirements. Great service.
Good guy .taking times to fix My car .he is a Porsche specialist ! Highly recommend ! Many Thanks Lloyd
Great, Great guy. highly knowledgeable and completed everything to my satisfaction. Not a cowboy mechanics. highly recommended and will go back for repeat business.
Speedy, honest, legit. Knows his stuff and openly shared diagnostic results and options to resolve.
Lloyd, was really good and efficient and did the work outside my house in about 20/30 mins. I had an electrical problem with my boot not working and sending the ECU a bit mad, so Lloyd fixed the wiring and had it back to normal. Other places had quoted me double the price! I will be using Lloyd for all of my car troubles from now on.
Fantastic service, CSS Motors collected my car the same day I accepted the quote and delivered it back that day with all work carried out. 10 out of 10. will defiantly use again
Excellent, efficient, friendly service
It's was good was really happy with the finish products and very happy with the service I got
They are very effective and know the job very well.
Very professional Soon as I got there they had already known the problem in my car as I spoke to them over the phone and through Whocanfixmycar. They just took the key and give me an estimate of how long it'll take. Meanwhile the receptionist made us a nice cup of coffee. Within no time the job was done and an invoice of the exact price given through the website was handed to me. Overall one of the best mechanics I've come across. Definitely will come again
Excellent knowledge /experience combined with a nice person at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Steve, but not too much because I will be using him again and I need to book him in!
Great prompt service. Diagnosed and fixed within a couple of hours. Recommended.
Did a very good job, I'm happy
Deffinately recommend. dealt compleatly over the phone as had to be in work, Steve from Puma Performance was there within a couple of hours of speaking to him, and fixed car same day, brilliant service hassle free, deffinately use again.
I will highly recommend Gates of Harlow, due to the simple fact that I left my car on Thursday afternoon, got a call couple of hours later with a full diagnostic details, accepted the offer, all the work done on Friday and collected the fully repaired car on Saturday morning. Prior to my visit to Gates of Harlow the car was subject to couple of unsuccessful checks in garages across Harlow which costed me week and half waiting in vain and zero results. Shelley White is a star. Great Thanks!

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
We work with a network of over 10,000 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive air conditioning regas deals for you.
You can then compare the quotes and read reviews from previous customers to find the best deal in your area, before booking aircon regas online.
