Excellent service- polite staff. Completed work quickly. Collected and delivered car which was great due to my work schedule. I would use again and recommend. Price was also competitive for the work to replace brake discs and brake pads.
Great service and very friendly. I will defiantly be using this garage again.
Friendly staff quick service and a pass
Brilliant service, price was the same as price quoted and was considerably cheaper then many other quotes I received. They came to collect and deliver the car back to us even though we were slightly outside of their radius which was really kind of then and saved us a lot of hassle. Would definitely recommend!
Paul was very professional and certainly knows what he is talking. Identified that a pipe had a tear ordered and replaced it
Excellent service and frank, sensible advice.
Very impressed and would use this garage again.
Great service, very thorough and good communication. I will use him again
Really professional service! Will definitely contact again.
Amazing service, spent so long with different garages to get a diagnostic and these guys spent less than half hour with the car to tell me. Couldn’t recommend enough!
New Clutch / Flywheel / Full Service / MOT - Pleasant helpful guys with advise on cost saving which was appreciated. Dropped of Car also after hours on a Friday. Car drives very well indeed.
Good service and very pleased with job.
Excellent value for money, especially when you add in the collection and drop off service. Had to do a bit of reminding along the way, but don’t mind that for the price!
Quick and easy, good customer service. Also found out that the oil filter was worn out so they fix that for me, would recommend
Mark was really quick to get in touch - and did a full service - including replacing the rear brake pads and calipers which were needed and everything I asked for in the notes for the request. It was a little more expensive than just the service - but I feel they did a good job.
Excellent service. Work completed exactly as quoted and kept fully upto date on progress by text message. New to area and had been struggling to locate a quality garage, will definitely be returning for future work.
Identified root problem
Excellent. Very thorough and informative.

Paul was great and fixed everything within an hour and a half. Highly reccomend!
Very prompt and courteous service,always kept me informed on the work that was being done.. I highly recommend this man
I like Paul, He was half the cost of the main dealer and very competitive with other traders. Work was done in good time with parts supplied at the price given. This is my second time using Castle cars and no doubt will be back again
Friendly service,waiting area' very competitive prices . Happy great service . Would go back.
Dave was simply fantastic! He explained to me over the phone all the costs associated with the possible outcomes of the brake pad/disk repairs before I set out to the garage and, while I have just relocated to the U.K., I found the price very reasonable indeed especially given how quickly he resolved and repaired my golf. Very very happy and Dave is now my go-to Mecanic for everything auto... plus Dave’s dog, Monty, is just the cutest...
Would recommend, very convenient, did the job quickly and for a good price thank you!
Very happy with the service. James was very knowledgeable and reliable, will use again.
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.

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.
