Our recent vehicle service work

We have been very busy at our Cardiff based vehicle service garage pictured below and have been servicing retail customers as well as our normal trade customers. Here are a range of vehicle maintenance jobs we have carried out recently showing you the diverse range of work we are able to carry out demonstrating there is no job too simple or complex we cannot undertake.


Firstly we have an Audi A5 and our mechanics installing a new clutch as the previous clutch had burned and warn away, the vehicle owner knew there was something wrong with the clutch as they could smell a rotten eggy smell inside the vehicle, the car is now back out on the road with a new clutch and the vehicle is working perfectly.



Our next vehicle is a Mercedes E250, the owner was having problems with the engine, we diagnosed what the problems were however there were lots of faults, we recommended to the owner to carry out an engine rebuild replacing some of the faulty parts with new parts, we have now completely stripped the engine fitted the new parts and fitted the engine back into the vehicle and the car is running perfectly, we know these photos don’t look pretty but here are photos of the vehicle in our garage but we can assure you the engine is sounding pretty.





We recently serviced a Honda CRV as the air conditioning had stopped working, on first inspection we could see straight away that the air conditioning pump had become faulty, we ordered the new part fitted it and the air con is now working and we have a very cool and happy customer.


Our next vehicle is a Mazda 3 car, this car was due for a standard service, here we inspected the vehicle from top to bottom and couldn’t find anything wrong with the vehicle or anything that needed any repairs or maintenance, so we don’t just find problems if there isn’t a problem we tell the vehicle owner the happy news.


Our last vehicle to let you know about is an Audi A4 car, the owner was complaining about not being able to select gears properly, on inspection we quickly saw that the master cylinder had become faulty which caused the gear selection problems, we replaced the master cylinder and the vehicle is now back out on the road selecting gears perfectly and running smoothly.

If so why don’t you think about opening a trade account with us, we service and maintenance vehicles for many trade customers and have done so for a number of years. We invest in the most up-to-date vehicle technologies and diagnosis equipment ensuring that we stay ahead in our industry.

Here is one example and evidence of the equipment we have invested in this year demonstrating our commitment in ensuring we have the best facilities at our Cardiff based vehicle service garage. We recently invested £20,000 in an Autologic Diagnostics System pictured below.




The Autologic system and software can be plugged into many brands of vehicle helping us identify and find the exact faults.
