Great service I was kept up to date when more work needed doing, would definitely recommend
Would definitely recommend them to anyone
Really good customer service. There was am unexpected fault found on my car when it was taken in for cam belt replacement which I paid extra for the part but the labour was free. They kept me updated throughout and even managed to sort me a little run around car at short notice as my car was undriveable and I needed to get to work. Customer service was brilliant. As soon as they received the new part required for my car it was fitted immediately and ready for collection later that day.
great service ,had my range rover air con regassed ...now blowing ice cold ,all done in less than an hour ..great stuff ,cheers
Managed to fit me in straight away
Pleased with new rear discs and pads fitted at price quoted even though Mike had a bit of a struggle with a couple of seized parts. Friendly efficient service.
Excellent service and price thank you for a very prompt professional job.
Mike fitted rear discs and pads. Very efficient and professional service. I will definitely be using them again.
Very good and really nice man. Took about 20 mins and would use again.
Excellent easy service at home
Quick turnround thanks.
Great service and quick for the job at hand. The only reason it ended up more expensive is because I had other issues that we're found whilst changing the clutch. Great little garage to go to if you work around the runcorn/Manor park area.
Amazing service. More jobs than we thought needed doing and they did the quickly but efficiently. I highly recommend this garage. Will be using them for future car problems. The price I paid is half the price of other places.
Seemed thorough in the way they checked over the car they collected and returned on a transporter vehicle
What you want from a garage really - fair price, no bull sh,t and someone who knows what their doing. Got my passat cam belt changed today, dropped car off first thing and had it back by lunch all done for a great price. checked their facebook page before hand and clearly they know german cars inside out so didnt hesitate and wasnt disapointed
Outstanding service, the clutch was replaced in a day and the car was as good as new once done. I was so impressed with the service from James that I will be using Vagtech from now on. In fact I have just dropped my Audi A3 there this morning to have the mysterious coolant loss looked at. I totally recommend James and Vagtech.
Great work James cheers Will be doing work for me in the future Thanks again
James done my rear brake pads on my bmw 116d. Very happy with the work A+. Very friendly and honest service which is hard to find these days. Would definitely recommend anyone.
Great job, got disks and pads done all working as it's supposed.

Top job, top bloke. As convenient as you can get, would definitely recommend.

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.
