Get a great-value Air-Conditioning Recharge with Who Can Fix My Car.
The garage wasn't able to find the issue but never the less gave a brilliant service. Collected and dropped off my car and was sensitive to the fact I couldn't be without the car, i'm a single parent with 3 small children
I had a positive experience when I used DB's Service and Tuning. The service I received from Desio and his team was second to none, the customer care was excellent, the price was reasonable and my car was repaired quickly. If you are looking for an honest, friendly and helpful mechanic, Desio's your man.
I recently had issues with my vehicle initially thinking that the gearbox required repair and replacement. I took my car to DB’s Service and Tuning and was quoted an initial estimate for repair. The gentlemen Decio, identified the cause of the problem to be a broken right hand side engine mount, resulting in the engine falling on one side affecting the ability to engage reverse gear. I was promptly provided with a new estimate for new parts and labour receiving a very descriptive email inclusive of pictures of the engine. The parts quoted were VW products, so I searched for alternatives on Euro Car Parts website in an attempt to lower the price. I was unsuccessful in finding any alternatives which reassured me that the price of the quite was not inflated. My vehicle was repaired and was ready for collection the next day. I could have had the car back the same day but I caused a slight delay in the commencement of the works when researching the option of alternative parts. I was very satisfied with the service provided, Decio was very thorough when explaining the issues affecting the vehicle. Decio advised that he worked for VW for a number of years and he took the time to advise me on other minor issues that required attention. I would highly recommend DB’s for vehicle repair, I shall certainly be taking my vehicle for a MOT and service in October 14.

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.
