Very professional! Installed a new wiper engine in a timely manner! Their quote was the most sensible! Would recommend!
Honest and reliable garage. Fast diagnostic and finished the job perfectly on time
Lovely garage, great customer service and kept me updated from start to finish. Would reccomend
Really great service. Waited on site and I was off again the same day. Definitely coming back for future work. Thank you Ivy and team!
The gearbox required reconditioning as it was making "chugging" noise in 1st and 2nd gears. Ivy and her team identified the problem as a leaking output shaft seal causing a loss of oil onto the clutch plate and worn gear bearings. The box was reconditioned and the clutch replaced in 2 days. Will certainly be using in future.
Can't fault the service at all. Came and picked my car up from work and dropped it back on the same day in good time so I had to waste absolutely none of my day. Great stuff.
Good garage good service...!!
Quick and reliable, would use again

Good service, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Would use again next time.
Carl of a2bWatford fixed my car on a same-day service. He was punctual, did a great job and was exceptionally an interesting and good to talk with guy. I'd strongly recommend them.
Nice bloke, cleared most fault codes for me as requested but diagnostic tool did not cover my vehicle, but appreciate the journey made for me on saturday morning.
Great service, very friendly and gave lots of helpful advice.
Very knowledgeable, helpful, prompt and went the extra mile when the job didn't turn out as easy as it first appeared. Highly recommended.
Very helpful and knowledgeable service, would recommend to others
These guys were very very helpful and quick to get the job done.Excellent communication too and fair prices.Highly recommended!
Excellent service provided by MT Auto Services. Turned up on time, really quick and thorough. Will be returning. Priced as quote.
Can’t recommend this guy enough. He stayed way over other the 45 minutes prices and didn’t charge us. He was able to identify the issue and talk us through the ways to resolve it and was happy to come back out and help with more issues. He had all the right equipment and this guy was professional
Stuart provided exactly the service I was after, highlighting the issue that was bugging me for months in less than an hour. Will use this company again, especially as they offer remote / mobile servicing options.
Really good garage, nice to meet someone you can trust, got them to do some other jobs for me as well. would highly recommend.
Quick response to my request, very knowledgeable and excellent service.
Didnt need work doing guy was honest
Collected my Car, kept me updated throughout with lots of photos showing job being done which I appreciated. Brought Car back to me. Price was as arrange. Old parts given back to me. Very happy and will be happy to use again. Thank you
The price was higher than the initial quote as I requested extra work on the air conditioning system. Work was finished on time and everything is working fine.
Very friendly, the mechanics were knowledgeable (I have an MSc in engineering, so I believe I can tell). The job was done exactly on time (no waiting). Will visit again.
Cannot fault the team at Motorwerks - if I could give you more stars I would! They managed to fit me in really quickly and provided excellent service right from the start. I thought a few bits (brakes, etc) had to be done on the car and after a detailed check and diagnostics of my car (which was all kindly done for free!), Motorwerks came back to me and said that is wasn't necessary at this time. These guys are really genuine and gave honest advice about my car. I felt they took great care and time to be really thorough when replacing the cambelt (which was excellent value for money) and did a really professional job. My car now drives like a dream! I will definitely be back and recommending to my friends and family. Thanks again Elie and the team :D

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.
