Dean renewed the clutch on my Toyota Aygo in a professional friendly manor. I would certainly recommend this garage as value for money and would certainly take my car there again if needs be.
Excellent quick and efficient at a reasonable price
Excellent job, car picked up on time and delivered back in 2 hours. Thanks Dean. I will certainly be using your serivces in the future for both my and wife's car.
Quick, efficient, price as stated, Dean was excellent. Thanks
Very impressed. Great customer service (including pick up and delivery), quality parts fitted and excellent value. Will definitely use again.
Really good and friendly was a great help for me
Good job,would use again.
Great job, great price, thank guys
Staff very friendly and helpful even giving me lift to the nearest town whilst the repairs were being carried out. Kept me up to date with developments, overall a very good experience throughout. Would certainly recommend Carbulance to my friends.
Was outstanding...turned up on time and did exactly what needed to be done...fair price as well. Would highly recommend..thanks Kevin. Debbie.
Replaced faulty water pump and gasket on Ford Focus Mk1 Zetec. Pressure test on cooling system. Replaced rocker cover gasket. Cleaned oil leaks around engine. Checked condition of cambelt. Shaun arrived as expected. He confirmed what needed to be done and confirmed the price of the work. He returned to perform the works. He worked in the rain and wind. He did a thorough and careful job. He used genuine Ford parts. He communicated with me in a friendly yet professional manner. I inspected his work and way of working which is a major advantage in having a mobile mechanic. I would recommend Shaun and would use him again.
Shaun, our mechanic, was very polite and thorough. Confirmed the problem, ordered, fetched and fitted the necessary part. He worked very hard and left everything very clean and tidy. Marvellous that he came to the house to do the job! Would definitely recommend WhoCanFixMyCar.com.
Coil packs - new plugs, full service, gear box oil + more .... Car now a dream, also advised me not to have some wear items done as had plenty of miles left- good comunication all the way through - Fair and very good service ... Thanks S and T!!
Shaun was punctual, easy to talk to, helpful and fixed all the problems with my vehicle at a competitive price.
Shaun was friendly, efficient and put me right at ease. I would 100% recommend him and will look to be using him first for any other issues I have. His price was surprisingly £150 cheaper than using a garage and I didn’t need to take time off work to drop the car off or pick it up.
Adrian was on time, did a great job, hardly stopped a moment for a coffee and tolerated, my many questions while he worked on my car. He knows Renault cars very well and is willing to share that knowledge, unlike many garages! It is the first time I have used a Mobile mechanic and consider him to be the most knowledge able technician I have been privileged to question, within my electrical and engineering experience. I will certainly use him again and will highly recommend him to my friends! Keith
Andrians quote was the cheapest by some way and nearly half of what my normal trusted garage would charge. Andrian communicated at every stage and although the work took longer than he originally thought he gave me plenty of notice so I wasn’t inconvenienced. Despite an unforeseen problem which increased the work he had to undertake, the price stayed the same. The clutch is now perfect and I will definitely be using Adrian again in future.
Excellent all round, good communication and I trusted him.
Very efficient - didn't mind lying in a puddle in the rain to fix my van.
Adrian - the mechanic is friendly who fixed my car with a very satisfactory service in a price relatively cheaper than other garages. I will recommend my friends to T&A Diagnostic through WhoCanFixMycar.car.

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.
