BREAK FLUID CHANGE

FOR SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE

Based in Peterlee, East Durham, Automotive Services by Richard Martin can carry out a brake fluid change on your car and we specialise in Audi VW Group vehicles.

So why do you need to change your brake fluid?

Your brake fluid must withstand temperatures of up to 230°c. Over time, the fluid absorbs water which has a boiling point of 100°c. As the water boils, it turns into compressible vapour, this is called brake fade, your brake pedal will feel like there is no resistance and stopping will be much harder.

WHEN?

Recommended after 3 years, then every 2.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We’ll check your brake fluid level for leaks. Then we’ll drain the system and replace the fluid. Finally, we’ll re-test the system and record the result.

Based in Peterlee, East Durham, Automotive Services by Richard Martin can carry out a cambelt change on your car and we specialise in Audi VW Group vehicles.

So why do you need to change your Vw Audi cambelt?

If your cambelt is worn, it can snap or jump, causing damage to your vehicle's engine. Your car could break down and require expensive repairs.

The cambelt is one of the hardest-worked parts of your car, driving major parts of the engine and keeping everything synchronised, so keeping it in good working order and changing it regularly can avoid major engine damage.

WHEN?

Times and mileages vary so we recommend getting in touch with you car details. As a rough guide Recommended every 4-5 years.
or Around 80k miles.  Even if your car has done very low miles the engine will have gone through many heat cycles and the plastic and rubber components can be potentially cracking.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We’ll strip down the relevant parts of the engine and renew the cambelt, pulleys, tensioners and water pump if applicable . We’ll then reassemble the engine. We always follow factory procedures and use Original equipment parts.

Prices?

For a 2.0tdi costing from £300 we are a massive saving from the franchised dealerships and  even most smaller independent workshops who usually  won't be using genuine parts, the special tooling and technical information we do.
