Brake repairs are one of our primary services and are vital for vehicle safety. Replacement of brake pads, brake discs, brake drums, brake shoes and hoses is a standard requirement on all vehicles, as these are subject to wear and tear. We can also take care of more serious or unexpected brake faults, including emergency and ABS braking systems. Brake safety and the safety of our customers is our main concern. Therefore, we will always use quality, like-for-like parts for optimum performance, while keeping costs down, to get you back on the road quickly and affordably.
Clutch repairs and replacement can be quite a major task. As such, when you book clutch repairs at Monnington Motors you can request a courtesy car, keeping you mobile while we complete the work. Clutch deterioration can affect the transmission, making it hard to change gear. You may notice the onset of clutch issues by way of poor acceleration, slipping, a higher ‘bite’ or changes in the feel of the pedal when pressed. If you are experiencing these symptoms, we recommend paying us a visit, so we can access the clutch condition before it becomes a more costly issue.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some repairs, understandably, are more challenging than others. Clutch repairs are problematic because they need repaired more often than other components. Your clutch suffers from wear-and-tear, so the more you use it, the more damage it sustains. As your clutch is closely intertwined with your transmission, it can be a sensitive and challenging repair for mechanics. Engines are also notoriously difficult and expensive to repair, but the preferable alternative to replacing your car. As with any repair, you want to go with a certified and qualified mechanic. Monnington Motors have years of experience dealing with all manner of complex and difficult repairs, so you can have confidence in our services.
This is variable depending on the complexity of the repair, accessibility of spare parts and extent of the damage. However, your mechanic won’t want to keep your vehicle longer than absolutely necessary, so it’s worth having that discussion beforehand to gauge expectations and avoid disappointment. Generally, minor repairs can be quick and completed within a day, but the nature of the works and availability of parts can exacerbate your waiting time. It can also determine if your car has to stay in the garage for an extended period. Always discuss your concerns with your mechanic first. We’ll do our best to get your car back on the road as quickly as possible.
Regular maintenance on your car can prevent costly repairs in the future. Getting your car checked by a mechanic is a good way to scout for potential issues and check on components that are most prone to wear. Although it might seem obvious, keeping an eye on your car and bringing it in for suspicious behaviour may save you an expensive repair in the long run. Common maintenance includes consumables like oil, brake fluid and wiper blades. Physical components like your filters, engines and tyres should also be maintained and frequently looked at.
This is subject to your agreement with your mechanic, but generally you can expect to pay for your service once it has been completed. In some cases, a deposit or down payment may be requested in exceptional circumstance (for ordering rare parts not normally held in the garage, etc). If you’re in doubt or have any questions, contact us for more information.
The tends to scale with how long your vehicle is kept in the garage. Generally, a longer stay translates to a more complex or sophisticated repair, which will cost more to resolve.
