Outstanding service. Fixed within the timeframe, car came back to me looking like I had just purchased it brand new. Communication was great. Overall I highly recommend Billy, Norman and the rest of the lads at 4 Fab Wheels
The job was done fast and well. I cannot find anything on my bumper that would make me think it was ever damaged. The people working at 4 Fab Wheels are friendly and professional.
I had some electrical faults on my Volvo and Billy and crew diagnosed the problem fast and rectified it within 24h. Good service, very polite and also good service hours which make it easy to drop of the car in the evening after work.
Really good. Really quick & very friendly. Would definitely use again in future
Very happy with the service. Quick and good friendly customer service. Def will recommend
My experience at Alperton Car Clinic was great! The communication was amazing from the start - from booking an appointment very quickly to getting sent information about how to access the garage. Also, I was given an update through the day so that I could review what the best options were and what I decided to go for. Everyone was extremely friendly and professional. The price was also very competitive and the service impeccable. Overall, I cannot recommend enough Alperton Car Clinic and the great people working there.
This service is out of this world, I could recommend it to everyone.
extremely helpful and knowledgeable. really happy with it that I might switch them with my usual garage.
very friendly staff and clear explanation on what is going on
I supplied my own parts and did exactly what I wanted the mechanic to do. He even gave me feedback on what i should do to maintain my car.
Friendly efficient garage who are keen to help. Work completed quickly no problems keen pricing and they kindly arranged for my car to be MOT'd too. Recommended.
Received a brilliant service from this garage they picked my car up from my home address took it away replaced clutch and returned it same day at a very reasonable price compared to other garages. The major highlight was that I didn't have to leave my house so so so convenient plus a job well done
Nina was exceptionally helpful. The communications were excellent, she recommended some additional work to the car, which I authorised. The additional cost was very reasonable and not a "rip off" as you would expect from garages. When the car was dropped off, Nina insisted on showing the parts that were replaced and the state of wear and tear. The workmanship was excellent, as was the price and communications. I couldn't ask for more. I can definitely recommend GML Automechanics!
I am very satisfied, they did a great job!
Nothing much to say Great Job at a reasonable price Thank you GML AutoMechanics
Very good, quick, honest and gave good advice. Will use again.
Fantastic from start to finish. Honoured the quote given online. Quick and friendly.
The final price looks high, but it was for a lot of extra things (asked for by me) - new car about to take a long road trip, so I wanted 'everything' fixed / replaced etc... Very professional and quick service and (from what I can tell, not being an engine expert) seems to be good work too - I'll be using them again for sure.
Got the price down from the original as did some price comparisons locally and they matched it. Overall good experience
Fantastic service. Collected and returned the vehicle within the agreed timescale. Vehicle cleaned inside and out. Would recommend for all future work.
Akash was very friendly and professional. He answered all my questions within a reasonable time. He collected and returned my car within a few hours and the service was great. I will definitely use him again. Thanks
Very friendly, professional service. Highly recommend!
Excellent service. Very professional and honest, which is not the view I get from most mechanics. Will use again for sure.
Absolutely brilliant service, put me first and helped me out massively as they knew the repair was urgent! Got everything done in epic time, friendly chat and very very respectful! Will definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone in need of help with their car!
These guys were great. i'll definitely be using them again. so easy, they picked up my car and dropped it back at the end of the day.
Very happy with the job. I will definitely go back if i need to.
Fantastic service, great price. I’ll be definitely coming back

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.
