Excellent service. Well worth the price. Staff when above and beyond what we asked them to do with no extra charge ie we asked them to adjust the handbrake on top of replacing the cam belt which was the main job. They took all the wheels and tyres off, checked all the brake pads etc and did a cracking job. Would recommend them without a problem
Very quick repair, cheap price & accommodating staff
Quick service, no delays, informative employees.
Managed to squeeze me in last minute for a cam belt and waterpump change and was done in less then 4 hours. Quick turn around. Friendly garage. Recommended and didn't cost me a fortune as some other garages quoted
Excellent service, great communication throughout, would highly recommend this garage.
All work completed as quoted. Collected and delivered my car when they said they would. Much cheaper than the quote from the main dealer.
Got my clutch fixed here, very good service! Highly recommended
Nice garage rang me up straight away if there was an issue friendly people would deffo use again
Great customer service, friendly and courteous staff, comes highly recommended.
Great customer service from Dexter who came to pick my car, dropped it off end of day. MOT fail at a different extortionist garage just before Christmas travelling and Dexter saved the day sorting out all fail items and advisories for a very reasonable quote well below the others including re-MOT. Would definitely recommend.
Love, friendly family business. Reliable and reasonably priced.
Great price. Great service
Brilliant service from DC Motors, just had a service on my fiat Tipo. A lot cheaper than dealer quotes. Will definitely recommend and will be back next time.
Great fast and friendly service will definitely be using again!
Excellent service, kept me informed throughout online. Courteous and gave me a full explanation for the extra cost - picking up and returning the car - which obviously wasn't in the original quote. Prompt and efficient, would definitely recommend.

Really pleased with RTJ Autos, enquired about servicing my car only 2 days ago and they were able to book me in for this morning.

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.
