Excellent customer service and very reasonable prices, also the option to pay in 4 monthly installments and it's interest free, they will even collect your car from home or work and return it when it's fixed or theres a courtesy car option for free. Fantastic experience and I will definately be using them for all my mechanical work from now on.
Guys sorted me out at half the cost of my usual garage. Would defo recomend them.
Fantastic service from friendly staff. We were in Glasgow when car warning lights appeared and were unsure who to contact. Through whocanfixyourcar.com we were given Drivers Aotocentres Ltd to contact, who did a fantastic job in getting us back on the road. , The fault was much more complicated than at first thought, but they got the job done at a very reasonable price. Thank goodness we were directed to a reliable garage who obviously know what they are doing and charges in my opinion were very reasonable in the circumstances. Should I ever be in the area and have car problems I know who I will call. Drivers Autocentres Ltd are highly recommended.
Service booked in - can’t review workmanship etc yet - but very happy with efficiency (David) so far - Price above excludes tyres required but INcludes Courtesy car and use of genuine Jaguar parts to protect my warranty.
Fantastic service quick and efficient will use again. Highly recommended
Great service and on time
Job done at an extremely good price (almost 1/3rd of main dealer cost) Car picked up and delivered back. No complaints at all. Will certainly use again and recommend to anybody.
Fantastic service from Auto Solutions. Collected my car and re-delivered to my house fixed within 48 hours. Price rose slightly by my own choosing due to them suggesting having the timing belt replaced whilst they had already stripped the car back. Highly recommend them and will likely be using them again in the future, super fast service.
good service, friendly people. Replaced timing chain, filters and all tippers. No more rattling noise when I drive!!
Just purchased a 2nd hand car and unfortunately very quickly it had issues. Brought it to kerr tech and in a day he had spoken to the garage and warranty guys, fixed the car and kept me updated throughout as i needed it back ASAP, i use it for work! Got it back the next day perfect. Highly recommended service was upfront, honest & transparent. Cost was for an additional EDT service I wanted.
Fantastic service could not do anymore for me would highly recommend kerr tech thanks again
Absolute pleasure dealing with this garage. He had the fault diagnosed with ten minuyes. Another garage asked us if we knew what was wrong. Had the EDT engine clean. Better MPG, reduced engine noise.
Can’t recommend highly enough..wish all garages weee as good as this wouldn’t hesitate to use again or recommend to anyone..simply superb .Thank you!
What a result Steve carried out the Diagnostics on my Lexus and found the problems in quick time, broken wires from MAF Sensor, which he repaired, faulty heater in brand new Lambda sensor which fitted, he found the fault on new sensor which he replaced with a new sensor from the Lexus stealers,which put up the price, Had to bite the bullet on that one, Any way car back and running better than ever, great job from STEVE AND NOT FORGETTING HIS DAD. What a team, just asked him to change my cam belt and parts , booked in for next week, will recommend Kerr Tech to my friends, wish I had found him years ago, well done,great job. Regards. Brian.N.

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.
