Arrived on time and although problem not resolved he advised on my options. Recommended
The clean went really well, came to my home however less than 2 weeks after, the DPF light has come back on, I am now waiting for a reply regarding this. Stu came out again, at a furthe cost of £185 the light is out again however no guarantees, it may come on again and need a further diagnostic
Good personal service
Sorry I cancelled this appointment because I got someone promising to come out on Sunday. Then they didn’t show and charged me more, so I wish I had gone with Autoserve.
Friendly and helpful staff. Job was completed for the quoted price and at a time that suited me. Dominic the mechanic knows his stuff and was helpful with any query i had. Would definitely recommend and will use these guys again in the future.
Great service will be using them again thanks for speedy service
Going to these again very reasonable price
Brilliant service,cheap would highly reccomend
Had my alternator & battery replaced at Ace car sales and couldn’t be happier. My car was picked up at lunch time and returned the same evening free of charge. I had been quoted between £250-£300 for the alternator alone elsewhere and this garage Replaced both for £185! Highly recommended!
Excellent service provided
As quoted, quick and easy service, friendly staff
Fantastic. The experience was great.
fast friendly service at an affordable price. no issues.
Nice guy, sorted my problems cheap and did a good job.
Fabulous service will defiantly use again
Fantastic in all ways! I would recommend wholeheartedly. Totally honest and reliable. After a few question/answers about which part of the exhaust needed fitting and the quote from Zoo Performance, we agreed I would order the part I found online and the next day as soon as the part arrived, the work was completed within the next 3hrs. Not only that, the car was cleaned, valeted inside and out far better than the hand car wash I take to normally. Its a small garage, but produced very high quality work. My Thanks to all the lads :)
The garage did an excellent job. Collected my car for me, did the work, then dropped it off having been valeted. Couldn't recommended enough

Very good job, work carried out to satisfaction at a great price
Outstanding service!! We received a quote quickly and once chosen Matt called to book us in and we had the work done 2 days later, the work was done in the car park at the office I work at, there was no disruption, the job was done quickly and included a free winter check which was brilliant!! Matt also gave the car a good check over and we would definitely be back in touch if we need any work doing on both our cars in the future. We would highly recommend Manchester Vehicle Solutions!!
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.

There are several obvious signs that your brake pads and discs are not operating properly. If your car is taking much longer to come to a stop, it will be clear that there is a problem with your brakes.
