Agreed a deal for me to supply the clutch kit and BD Autos to fit. They collected my car free of charge (16 miles away from their garage) Had it ready for 3pm the next day. Awesome service, really nice chap and good value for money. I definitely recommend them.

Excellent job and great service. Very competitively priced and I would use this garage again.
Very good. Quick and efficient. Excellent customer service! Would highly recommend.
My car went in for clutch and slave cylinder replacement, got my car back before the long Easter weekend, but needed to go back for a minor fault (no fault of AMS garage as even the Vauxhall agents struggle with the fault - after doing my own research). I called them up, they immediately sent out a Mechanic on a bank holiday to collect the car from my house, worked on it through the weekend and delivered it on the bank holiday Monday at my house. I was really impressed at the lengths AMS garage went to, ensuring that I was a happy customer. Excellent service guys, you're top of my list for recommendations!!
Excellent service and best price by a fair way
good, helpful mechanic
Prompt and honest service. Will use again. Thanks!
The problem turned out to be something else instead of what I thought it would be. I received great customer service; I received regular updates from Rob and he also arranged the collection and return of my car. I was impressed with the work and service received and would highly recommend this garage
Was honest and turns out I didn't need a clutch replacement, so reccomend something alot cheaper which has currently worked. Will use this mechanic again. Thanks Rob.
Solid reliable mechanic. Good communication throughout. Stuck to the quote while a number of other garages didn’t when it came to sourcing the right part. Job done very promptly and even offered free pick up. Will use again.
Alex was fantastic,so professional and friendly,sorted the job, cleaned up, bit of friendly banter and off he goes. I honestly couldnt recommend Alex more. In a word "Brilliant!"
Really impressed, honest guy, did a great job and great value. Price was less than quoted as didn't need all the parts. Will definitely use again.
Really great price and work has lasted as was done over 6 months ago and no issues.
Put my request in for a job. Had a reply within 24 hours with a price. Job was done within 2 days of my enquiry. Fantastic. Feel so intimidated going into garages to sort my car out. I absolutely love this system. Will definitely use it again. Garage was efficent and I was really pleased with the work. Many thanks.
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.
