Job done at an extremely good price (almost 1/3rd of main dealer cost) Car picked up and delivered back. No complaints at all. Will certainly use again and recommend to anybody.
Fantastic service from Auto Solutions. Collected my car and re-delivered to my house fixed within 48 hours. Price rose slightly by my own choosing due to them suggesting having the timing belt replaced whilst they had already stripped the car back. Highly recommend them and will likely be using them again in the future, super fast service.
good service, friendly people. Replaced timing chain, filters and all tippers. No more rattling noise when I drive!!
Yes. This exceeded my expectations. They were very quick in fixing my break pads. Would highly recommend them.
Car was serviced as required only took 90 mins
Excellent services. In constant contact with Patrick was collected and return as stated. Price quoted was the final price. Patrick also touched up a couple of chips on the door edge and a smaller scrap on the back bumper ( within the quoted price). Totally satisfied with the finish and the expertise of the company. Would totally recommend them.
Great garage! Good guys who are professional and efficient. Will definitely return and recommend to everyone.
Very competitive price, handy location for me. Patrick is very nice fella, very helpful, sourced good quality (Bosch/Brembo) discs and pads. Job was completed speedily. Would whole heartedly recommend ACS. Came across this site and ACS only via google search. Very glad I did. Would use again next time I need garage.
A clutch replacement was needed rather than attention to the gearbox and has solved the problem . The car was collected and returned within the timescale promised and I was able to check on progress over the phone. Full marks for that but less than full marks for the paperwork. Payment had to be by cash, no invoice appeared as promised and no receipt available either except a handwritten one on a piece of blank paper. They need to warn that only cash is acceptable and lrovide proper documentation of what’s done and confirmation of the guarantee period.
Great service 5* took my car to another garage they told me it was problem with pump got that changed then they told me no it's not pump it is clutch so took my car way and found this website who can fix my car. This was cheaper quote I got and after spending money on pump I didn't need in end I went with it they come to collect my car in afternoon at work and even gave me a car to drive which I wasn't expecting which saved me time and money as I was planning get train home from work. Next day got call in afternoon say not only clutch needed changing but gear stick was broken they even sent me a video to show me damage, didn't cost that much more so got fixed by time I left work at 5pm the next day car was with me and felt brand new. Saved me time and effort for pickup of car. Zak driver picked up my car was very professional and polite. Cash payment made on drop of my car after test drove it for 2-3miles. Good points - Service 5* - give you replacement car - pick up your car from any location - quick turn around 1day or same day service - great price comparison with others Bad points - cash payment - late on responding to calls and text - no recipet or paper work given All in all have more good then bad and can save you time and money would recommend to anyone.
Kaz and his boys done a terrific job in fixing my gearbox and a new clutch. They found another problem , informed me about it and asked if I wanted them to proceed..Car was returns in pristine condition Thanks boys
What an amazing garage. They fixed my car within 4 hours when other garages told me it was an 8 hour job. On top of this the price was £400 cheaper than any other garage. The set up is simple but the quality of workmanship is amazing and the best I have ever seen. Kaz the owner is an amazing guy and a true businessman. The free collection and drop off service is fantastic but more importantly is how forthcoming and transparent this garage is as they gave me all of my old parts back. If you would like to get your clutch, flywheel or gearbox done then look no where other than New Shepperton Tyres & Autocentre, you will not be disappointed with the service and guaranteed to get value for money. Many thanks to Kaz and his team.
I'm was impressed how quick the job as done, cheap compare to others and very friendly people
Collected my car, fixed it, MOT'd it and delivered it back to me really quickly, and all for a really good price. Will definitely use this garage again next time I get stuck with a car problem :-)
An efficient and professional service that for the price above included a cam-belt and water pump change,oil and air filter change and synthetic oil change as well as a courtesy car whilst the job was being done. I should be able to award six stars. Thank you very much Swanmore Repair centre.
Very personable and professional, very competitive pricing. I added on oil change, filter and air-filter which was a very reasonable cost.
Brilliant service.Thank you
An excellent service at an excellent price. The above price included a cam-belt and water pump change, oil and air filter change and a C3 oil change. Polite and friendly staff who also loaned me a courtesy car whilst the job was done. If I could I would award them six stars. Well done.
Very good job did as asked no hidden extra very happy
This is a fantastic group of people. I used to use them but have moved further away and had a terrible experience with a different garage. When I used WhoCanFixMyCar.com I learned that Pool Street will come and collect and return your car even as far away as I am. Much appreciated and unlike most they always stick to their word and don't charge for diagnosis or advice.
Great service, will be using again!
Easy to book,job done at a fair price,service with a smile,recommended.
Very good service would recommend to anybody
Excellent Service !!! Honest and polite staff. You will not be disappointed
Final price was higher than original quote but this was due to other parts needed. These guys were quick and had great communication through the clutch replacement process but most importantly were 50% cheaper than tambridge garage in southwater quote - will 100% use these guys again
Great Service. Work completed on-time and to a very high standard. Very good value cam belt, tensioners & water pump change for works vehicle. On colecting the vehicle all Replacement parts had been retained for my inspection. . Better service than a main Citroen dealer A++++

A brake, or brake pad is a system that safely enables a car to stop. Brakes get rid of the kinetic energy that helps the car move, which is done by using force of friction to convert this motion of energy into heat. Your car's braking system is made up of the following components: Brake discs, which spin with your car's wheels, Brake Pads, which push on the discs to slow the car, Brake Calipers which hold, and push, the pads, Brake Lines (or 'Hoses') which carry Brake Fluid, and your Brake Master Cylinder and Servo, which work to amplify the effort you use when pushing the brake pedal. Wear or failure of any one of these components will cause braking problems, requiring repair.
Modern cars have brakes on all four wheels which are operated by a hydraulic system and are made up of several components all of which are subject to stress which could result in breakage.
The front brakes in a car are typically the ones which play the greater part in bringing a car to stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward every time the vehicle comes to a stop.
There are different systems used for braking from one car to the next which suits the needs of the vehicle size and function.
The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.
Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.
If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.
If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.
The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts. Therefore, noticing the need for a car brake repair should be obvious. But you can check faulty brake symptoms here.
Brake pads are a critical component of a car and a vehicle cannot come to a halt without them functioning properly. Brake pads are fitted to the brake calipers which push the pads into the brake discs which are fitted to a car wheel. When a car is moving, the pads grip the discs to slow down the wheel and thus slow the car down.
A high amount of heat energy is created from the resulting friction as explained above and over time, this will wear brake pads down.
Brake pad replacement is a common job, the work to remove a worn-down-set is not complex so if you require a brake pad replacement, the repair will not be a lengthy one.
If you would like to understand how to tell when your brakes need servicing read our dedicated guide.
Brake discs are fitted to the car wheel itself and they are gripped by the brake pads.
Brake discs replacement is more expensive; the parts are more expensive than pads. Often pads are placed at the same time the discs are replaced.
If a mechanic advises you to replace your brake discs, they will likely suggest replacing the pads at the same time due to a the low cost of the part and the little extra labour time needed.
The cost of brake pad replacement may vary depending on the car make and model. This is because there are different sizes of brake pads and the cost increases as they get bigger. For example, a Land Rover will require a bigger set of brake pads as opposed to a Fiat Punto.
We have written a brake price comparison guide if you want to learn more.
If you want a good brake pad deal, you can compare quotes from garages near you by entering you details at the top of the page.
If you specifically require brake disc replacement, the work will take a similar amount of time to a brake pad replacement.
However, as highlighted above, the cost will be more expensive that pads due to the parts pricing.
Brake pads are changed by removing the wheel and unscrewing the bolts which hold the part in place. The part is then simply taken off the brake caliper and a new brake pad is fitted. The same process will be applied for each of the pads that need to be replaced.
There are many other common issues which can arise with the braking system which are not connected to brake pads and discs issues. The brake lines are susceptible to leakage as brake fluid can leak from the system if rust is untreated. The master cylinder is also a part of the braking system which can become faulty. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.
If you want to know how brakes work, we have created a dedicated guide.
There are several obvious signs that your brake pads and discs are not operating properly. If your car is taking much longer to come to a stop, it will be clear that there is a problem with your brakes.
