Clutch went and they managed to fit us in short notice. Got it dropped off last thing and replacement was done next day. Good price and sorted quickly. Would recommend.
top class service nice people to deal with sent me updated photos and kept the old parts to show me they even did another little job for me and did'nt charge me would'nt hesitate to use them again.
I had previously used WhoCanFixMyCar and was initially a bit cautious about using a garage from the site again after a bad experience elsewhere. However, when I needed a new cambelt and began looking for ballpark quotes I came across Merseyside Car Repairs LTD. The reviews seemed almost universal in their praise of the garage (both on the site and elsewhere) so I decided to take a punt; I couldn’t be happier that I did! Jay and from the garage was great to deal with. He was really knowledgeable and provided an excellent level of service from the off. When I dropped the car off he asked how I was getting to work across the water. He then took the time to drive me to the ferry station. Once work began I was sent regular updates with photos of the progress. I chose to have the car serviced at the same time as it was an absolute bargain. In the end, the cost of the work even ended up being £50 cheaper than my original quote. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this garage and have already done so to friends.
Excellent job ,great little place
I am fortunate enough to live on the side of the Wirral Peninsular where people live longer than on the side which has been neglected by national and local government. As such, I am guilty of forgetting what the more 'industrial' side of the Wirral can offer and have used the same local garage with CH47 postcode for 3 decades. So I decided to do something different when it came to replacing the Cambelt and water pump on my car. I'd never used the WCFMC website before so I tried it and 3 quotes came back, with MCR's being in the middle tier. I also needed a service so asked for a quote on that and they came back with a pleasing price. After I'd left my car with them and gone to work, I started to wonder whether I'd done the right thing not going to my usual place. But reminding myself the reviews were good, I stopped worrying. There was nothing to worry about whatsoever! As soon as they were into the job they sent me pics and a video via WhatsApp. Never, have I had this sort of communication from a garage and it was a brilliant move on their part. They kept me informed all the way and asked me if I wanted to change the fan-belt at the same time as it was cracking. They even detected a fault with my DPF filter under diagnostics, but rather than it being an expensive fix, they narrowed it down to a corroded earth wire. They also sent me more pics of them fixing this. Now my car is running far more smoothly and the economy is back to what it was 2 years ago. These guys really know their stuff and I would not hesitate recommending them or going back there. My regular garage would have been way more expensive, so more fool me for not taking a leap of faith into the unknown years ago.
Nice job well done
Brilliant service, I will be using this garage again. Fast and reliable
Quick & Professional service. Diagnosed the problem with my car straight away, and got me booked in quickly too fix the problem. Would definitely recommend this garage.
Brilliant service from the garage. Had me booked in for Saturday morning first thing. Left my car with them and had a call back an hour or so later to come and collect it. Even topped up my brake fluid and coolant which was really great of them to do. Would go back again if I have any more troubles.
Great service and very competitive price, new clutch feels great. Just one thing to note this website still has the old address (Regent Road), the garage has moved to Great Howard Street
Excellent service, arranged time and date, came and collected car, changed clutch the same day!!! Would recommend to everyone. Thanks guys
Fab service, needed a new camchain on Vauxhall Corsa. Received a quote within two hours, which I accepted. Car collected from my house at 8am and returned all fixed at 5pm. Highly recommended.
Excellent communication and service. Competitive price. Didn't charge extra to recover car to garage. There were no hidden extras what he quoted was what I paid. Would definitely be recommed to friends.
Excellent. Car was picked up at the door and returned the same day with a brand new clutch. Can't recommend too highly

Price as agreed, no hidden extras. Quick to quote and respond. Thanks
I was amazed about their professionalism. A very clean garage, friendly and polite staff. I am very impressed and satisfied how they've checked my Van to renew my MOT. Thank you, Jason Scott LEWIS.
Malmar motors gave me the best quote for my job, but that isn't why I chose them for the job. I phoned several quotes and after speaking to Lee at Malmar I was impressed by his professional manner and obvious knowledge. The job was booked in and completed very quickly, without fuss or sales talk. I'm well satisfied and would recommend. I will be using Malmar motors again.
Good service. Helpful staff. Was kept in touch throughout. Ended up costing more than quoted because needed a new part but was fully explained and now working well. Would definitely use again.
Great customer service, very fair price
Very prompt and friendly service

Adam was outstanding! He spent the time to diagnose and pinpoint the problem with my car...which has eluded my own garage and 4 AA mechanics! I can't recommend him highly enough! Fantastic mechanic.
Adam was great and managed to fix my vehicle at the side of the road. I'd previously called the AA out and they were unable to do this, so I was extremely pleased that Adam could! Would definitely recommend.
Great service, work carried out quickly and within the quote price. Highly recommended.
Brilliant, quick and good quality service. Will definitely being going back again. Very professional and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

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.
