Great work! Knowledgeable, definitely will try him again
Excellent and very straightforward to deal with. Duffys replaced my rear brake pads and two front tires for the price we had previously agreed. They even collected the car and dropped it back off at my house for no extra charge. I would highly recommend and would use this garage again without hesitation.
Great and professional service, with good advice.
Amazing service, came and picked my car up, sent detailed photos of issues found and offered unbeatable quote to fix, even though I replied very late in the day still managed to complete work and return car to me by the time I asked. I can’t recommend enough and will be using for all future work
Brilliant service, thank you!
Friendly staff, everything explained fully. Not the cheapest, but very professional service.

Excellent price great job bend-over backwards to help you, they found another issue with car they fixed it without charging me any extra money Not meny garages would do that
Fantastic friendly customer service, and really competitive prices.I will definitely be using AF Service Centre again for all my motoring needs.A genuine business and honest people.
AF Service Centre are fantastic! I used them last year when my exhaust bracket needed fixing so I thought I'd return for my car's full service and MOT. Their customer service is faultless, simple as that. Due to a small oversight the work had to be completed at their sister garage in Ashington but David contacted me to let me know. Thanks also to Danny from the Ashington garage for collecting my car this morning and dropping it back off this afternoon. AF truly deserve the 5* reviews they receive and I fully recommend them!
Very good service
Very profession service both before and after dealing with the car. Reece on reception is very friendly and gives very good impression for the efficient back room professional. Would definitely recommend
Excellent and efficient service, second time I’ve used this garage would recommend!
Friendly and knowledgeable.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming, It was great on the way home being able to have air con working. Again a big thank you to everyone. John Pate
Excellent garage, really nice guys and fixed the problem quickly. Highly recommend!
My wheel bearings x2 needed replacing. I’d driven over 200 miles over Christmas to visit family in Newcastle and the noise my car was making had gotten worse during the journey to the point I didn’t want to risk the long drive back with my 1 year old in the car, in case it was serious. Anyway, I contacted Mark Xmas eve and he quoted me straight away to take a look but the soonest he could do it was the 27th, understandably. It was arranged without any problem. When I took it in on the 27th he diagnosed it quickly, did the work the same day and had it back to me sounding and driving like it should. He only charged what he paid for parts plus a fair price for labour. If I ever need my car looked at when I’m in Newcastle again I will definitely go to Mark.
Great service, fitted my car in at short notice despite them being really busy. Thank you.
Great service. Speedy quotes despite me keep adding to the list. Completed a whole list of jobs that had been listed by Audi Main Dealers as needing done for half the price. Original quote for main dealer was £1200. Really happy with the work and have us honest opinion of the condition of the car. Only slight snag was card machine was not working on day of collection but we were made aware in plenty of time to arrange to pay cash. Would definitely use PSA again
Went up and beyond to fix my car, did extra aswel even after i harrassed him, defently a great find. Don't think I'll be going anywhere else in the future
Abstemiously brilliant price and service. Can't recommend them highly enough. They even responded on a Sunday to questions via text!
Car works fine after having it in for a replacement alternator belt. Only downside I have is my side mirror has been damaged and is very loose . They both are very loose now. Apart from this brilliant lads and quick service.
Performed job quickly at price quoted. Good waiting facilities.
Excellent service, can’t recommend highly enough will be back for me next service!
great job,windscreen washer needed fixing, would recommend without hesitation
Very friendly and professional service would strongly recommend Tripal garage
Jack was amazing from start to finish, he also fixed another problem with my Renault megane that no less than 6 other garages including a Renault specialist were not able to fix it is running perfectly since taking it to Duffys Motors and will continue to use this garage in the future, I would highly recommend this garage to anybody who wants the best affordable service and a mechanic who is second to none, if I could give him 10 stars I would.
Good job done, would defiantly use them again without fail. Would give 5 stars, only thing was I was waiting longer than anticipated. Thanks again lads!
Everything was done with no fuss. Car picked up in the morning and returned once the work was complete. Nice and easy, price as quoted after I added an extra. Will use again.
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.
