We are based just off the Battle road in St leonards, not far from the roundabout with the ridge behind the Hastings Observer building As an independent BOSCH accredited service centre specialising in all makes of European and Japaneese cars (and anything else you might have) we are able to effect any repair your car might require including Air conditioning pump replacement, Brake Disk and pads, Engine reconditioning, Power steering, timeing belt replacement, oil filter chages, fuel injection servicing, diesel injectors, you name it we can repair or replace it.

Timing Belt or Cam Belt is an important part of the car's engine which controls the timing of the engine's valves. It is typically made of rubber and other fibres which steadily degrade over time, leading to a need for replacement before the belt breaks with costly consequences.

We provide a Cam Belt replacement service. This is a vital requirement on most vehicles at manufacturer recommended mileages. If the Cam Belt is not replaced at the set intervals it could break and on most cases cause expensive damage to the engine. This can be a complex job that requires skill and specialist knowledge and technical information all of which you will find at St leonards text Centre.

We offer a range of high quality new clutches from Europe's leading clutch manufacturers and unlike some other 'clutch fitting companies' we employ qualified technicians so a proficient person carries out this complex task that involves extensive stripping down of engine and gearbox components.

It is important to get specialist advice before fitting a new clutch as many symptoms could indicate a problem with the clutch, whilst the real fault may be something completely different such as engine revving, slipping fan belt or minor adjustment.

An example of some common clutch faults is listed below.

SLIP - Caused by oil on the friction plate or worn friction plate, the symptoms of clutch slip would be partial or total loss of drive, vehicle speed lower than normal compared with engine speed.

DRAG - Clutch cable not at correct adjustment or centre plate sticking on spline. The symptoms of this would be difficulty in obtaining gear, particularly first and reverse gears.

JUDDER - Caused by warped friction plate or engine / gearbox mounts broken. The symptoms of this would be a shudder and vibration as vehicle moves off from stationary.
