After having 2 other mechanics not be able to fix my car, JAG got it done. With a new part my car is working fine 100% recommend and i'm deferentially using him again if i need any more work done.
Very helpful workers the part was fitted at 1st was the wrong one but they sorted it out as soon as the can and came back the next day to fit it would recommend this garage and IF ne more problems with my car they will be the 1st I will call
We had a slight confusion over the booking but to his credit, he got to me later in the day and did the work very quickly. Sadly it turns out there's another issue - so I'm hoping to get him back again! Which says it all really.
Excellent service very knowledgeable and friendly would definitely recommend them and use them again
Had egr valve replaced on my audi a3. Due to unforseen circumstances the bill did go up, not on jags part as a bolt was snapped. But jag had this rethreaded and back on, albeit he had to come again on another day to complete. These boys work hard and they managed to get this labour intensive job done
Amazing service, very competent mechanic (Michael), and a very helpful owner Adam. The work required for my car was quite technical but these guys went about it very nicely and got it done on time. I am going to be a regular customer now:)
Fixed my initial problem on car, they even collected it from my house as I was at work. Cost me around 30 pound, one problem was my car mats were covered in grime afterwards I don't mind the car exterior coming back dirty but the original mats are stained and I found a food box half eaten left in the rear passenger foot well. If you don't mind cleaning up food and grime stuck in your cream floor mats then this is the place to use.
Very good smart repair on bodywork of my car
Great service, booked through website first thing in the morning, car was booked in and fixed with two hours! Very friendly staff and very helpful, got me back on the road in no time. Thank you very much!
Great service & very helpful - made me aware that all my brakes & disc were unsafe and gave me a great price to fix them all.
Excelllent Service, very efficient. Came to the house to carry out the work. Would 100% recommend this garage.
Very good service and price.would definitely use again. The work was very good as well.
Had discs and pads all round, jag was friendly and did the work on my drive and provided a great service. 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.
