Cambelt and Water Pump Replacement

Combined Cambelt & Water Pump Replacement with 4 Year Warranty

When a cambelt breaks it will likely cause severe damage to your engine. It is important to follow your vehicles service schedule and replace the cambelt when recommended. Replacing the vehicle water pump at the same time is also cost effective and at our Hedge End garage we can carry out a combined cambelt and water pump replacement that includes a 4 year warranty. Most garages will offer a 2 year warranty for this but with our fully qualified, manufacturer trained, vehicle technicians we can provide you with an additional 2 years for your peace of mind. If you’re unsure when the cambelt is due for replacement on your vehicle we are happy to check, advise and carry out the work if required.

Thirty Point Health Check

Free 30 Point Health Check!

Make sure your car or van is safe for the road with our free health check. We’ll visually examine your vehicle tyres, oil, washer fluid, battery and alternator, windscreen blades etc to determine their condition. We’ll provide a report of our findings and quote for any work recommended without obligation.

Tyre Sales

Tyre Sales & Wheel Balancing

If your car or van wheels wobble at high speed you’ll notice some discomfort through the steering wheel. If this is happening to you ask us to take a look, as an unbalanced wheel will lead to uneven tyre wear. At your request, we can check out your tyres, advise on their condition and fit new tyres where necessary. You can also order tyres online for fitting at our Chandlers Ford branch.

Air Conditioning Service

Air Conditioning Service and Cleanse

Your car or van air conditioning is designed to keep you cool throughout the summer and de-mist windows in the winter. But it does need a service from time to time to keep it efficient. We can re-gas and antibacterial clean your system, ridding you of unpleasant, unhealthy air. Ask us to check your air conditioning during your next service!
