Penarth Tyres
5 Jobs Completed
Penarth
5.0 / 5

When the opportunity arose for Tyre Specialist Chris Cronin to acquire a garage on Station Road, Penarth, it was something he couldn't turn down. Not only did the garage offer a place for him to exercise the experience he'd gained in the tyre industry over the last 10 years, it also fulfilled the need for an outlet solely providing and fitting tyres in Penarth.

In May 2014, Penarth Tyres was officially opened and a company logo relating to the English translation of Penarth (arth= bear and pen=head) was created.

Priding ourselves on our experience, friendliness and competitive prices, we guarantee you’ll be impressed with the service provided. As well as stocking a large amount of budget tyres and premium tyres such as Michelin, Dunlop, Continental and Falken, we are also able to accommodate run- flats, 4x4s and vans.

You could say Penarth Tyres is something of a paradox - whilst commited to the old fashioned values of honesty, quality and reliability, we also have invested in brand new state- of- the- art machines. With top of the range equipment, it means any size wheel and any service can be dealt with efficiently and to a high standard.

Although we do guarantee a quick and efficient service, if you're looking to drop off your car and pick it back up at a later time.. no problem! Located conveniently in Penarth town centre with ample parking and access to local shops, buses and Penarth train station, you're able to get on with your day car- free if needs be. Or if more suitable, we do offer a local collection and drop off service for no extra cost.

Frequently asked questions
+

What is a car alternator?

The car's alternator performs a simple, but vital job: to keep your car's battery charged. The battery is responsible for starting the car, spark plugs, lights, electrics, and sometimes power steering - quite a job - so it's essential that it's topped up - and that's what the alternator does.

+

What are common problems with an alternator?

The alternator acts like a small generator: the engine spins it, and the alternator turns that spinning motion into electricity.The most common problems are worn brushes (the component that maintains constant electrical contact with the spinning alternator) and a failing voltage regulator (which ensures that the charge is sent to the battery at the correct voltage.)

+

What are the common symptoms of alternator problems?

Common signs of car alternator problems include the 'charge' or battery lights flashing on the dashboard, flickering or dimming headlights and interior lights and a growling or whining noise under the bonnet.

+

What is the average alternator repair cost?

An alternator can be rebuilt as opposed to replaced, however in truth the difference in cost is often quite small. Either way the most common repair cost is around £150-200.

+

How to test an alternator for problems

A simple way to test an alternator for problems is to do what's known as the headlight test. Park your car with the headlights on or run it in neutral, then rev the engine. If the headlights dim you could well have an alternator problem. A better test is to take your car to a garage, where a car alternator can be tested using a multimeter tool.

+

What happens if my alternator breaks?

If your alternator fails, your car battery won't charge and, very soon, will have insufficient charge to start the car.

Atrernator Repair Prices

Although the alternator is a relatively simple Land Rover part, it plays a critical role in your vehicle’s operation, so it’s essential any alternator problems are diagnosed correctly and fixed.

Here are some of the most common signs that your Land Rover alternator is on the blink:

  • The alternator warning light will be on – in most cases this is shaped like a battery but some cars will show ‘ALT’ or ‘GEN’
  • You may experience extremely bright or dimming headlights, or a speedometer that stops working
  • Drivers sometimes complain of a growling or whining noise before the alternator gives out
  • You may experience a smell of hot wires or burning rubber

The average Land Rover alternator repair cost is between £200 and £300, depending on the model of your Land Rover, so it’s important you make sure you find the best deal. And that’s where we can help.

Here’s how it works:

  • Simply enter your car registration number
  • Give us some details about your vehicle and the kind of repair work you require
  • We’ll send you a great selection of quotes from mechanics in your area

We use our network of 15,164 mechanics and garages across the UK to find you the best deal. You can then compare the quotes, read reviews from previous customers and book your alternator repair online.
