Jack was very accurate to check the car and unfortunately it was not only the clutch to be broken but also the flywheel. Good communication fair price
Would recommend this garage, great service
Essy guy to deal with, he came & picked my car up on time & dropped it off outside work the same day, all work undertaken as quoted. I would reccommend this garage as I had no problems with him & his service was spot on.

Nice people, honest, exactly what you want in a garage!

A good price with a friendly team
Brilliant service at this garage and was really impressed. Took my car over on the night before and left the keys in the letterbox drop off. The following day they told me that a garage I had went to in the past had fixed the coil pack on my car wrong and that it wasn’t bolted into place and they fixed this problem and told me the other reasons why the engine management light was on in my car. Problem solved in a day and would definitely recommend this garage to anyone.
Great job as always
Very good service

VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade

Top bloke. Great lad is Mark. Put a new timing belt and water pump (at my request). Collected my car and dropped it off same day and even gave me the time of day for a chat and appraisal of the condition of my ageing VW Golf. Pointed out that my flywheel was getting noisy - which I hadn't noticed until he pointed it out. Told me not to worry just yet though.... I'll be getting him to do this other repair at some point. Recommend this garage. Top bloke
It was was the Gateshead branch that did the work not the Newcastle Branch. They were very professional and went above and beyond and made the whole procedure very easy and straightforward. Great guys and can highly recommend to others.
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.
