Very helpful, solved the problem with the car very quickly and for a good price, thanks
I would HIGHLY recommend Kam services in Abbey Street Derby, and I will use them again. They were super professional, efficient and stuck to the price they quoted (which was highly competitive and better than Formula 1 in Derby and several independents). They did a cambelt on my Renault Megane. Simon in particular gives great customer service. Thanks to all at Kam Services Derby !
Spot on service
Fast and quality
This garage was awesome and definitely use again. Being a female most garages would speak down to me yet these guys explained everything, showed me parts they had taken out and how worn they were. Rang straight away after accepting quote, before they did the repair they identified issues and solutions and were excellent. Provided car for the day and great service. Definitely recommend and use again. Cheap price doesn’t always been less of a service. Actually I had several quotes from main chains and dealers and they were robbing me blind for same work. Thanks.
Great staff. Would definitely recommend
great garage to deal with.very professional explained everything to us before and after work completed thank you

Job done quickly
Excellent service,reasonable price.
Professional in every sense. From Start to finish. The car is running very well. I will be using Elite Auto Centres again. Thanks chaps
Great work completed on estimate
Lovely staff, and helped a lot with the car. Would use them again
The work done was fantastic and efficient. i had a total clutch failure and they were quick to fix it. I would recommend going there for cheap clutch repairs, however they're a business and intend to sell you extras when not needed.
Very happy with work carried out. Would recommend friendly helpful staff. Cambelt and water pump. Fanbelt. Glow plugs fitted that I supplied. Good price for work carried out.
Brilliant service, diagnosed my car and fixed it quickly. Also sorted my back windscreen wiper for no extra charge.
Very good service, Phil was nice, collected my car from work and dropped off, my car was back within 1 hour, very good price and service, thank you!
Fantastic service from MP Automotive. Quick turn around and very pleased with the result. Have no hesitation in recommending this garage for work and will be using them again.
Another great job carried out. It's the second job I've had done by this garage this year.
Highly knowledgeable., will recommend
Price the same as agreed
Couldn’t recommend KAM enough! I phoned enquired through this website at 09:00 I had my car booked in the same day by 10:00 and returned to me by 14:00! Now that’s customer service for you. I went for front pads to be replaced then decided I wanted a full service doing as well, they didn’t have any problems doing this at the same time, resulting in me getting both jobs done and out the way for another year. Cheers lads top marks from me I’ll be back for sure
Great job done
Best priced for the job, local to us and fit us in within 24 hours at a weekend. Provided advice on condition of tyres and will return for future business. Organised and friendly staff, many thanks for the service.

The cost of servicing, MOT and repairs differ across the country and Cambelt Change is not any different. Labour rates will be higher or lower depending on where in the country you are. Take a look below at the average quote in Derby for Cambelt Change on WhoCanFixMyCar.com for some of our top car makes.

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
