Fantastic service, really nice people. They worked hard to find an intermittent fault on my VW, and the repair costs were not high. Will be getting my VW serviced here.

First class experience of work on my Audi. Nothing was too much trouble by Richard and was refreshing to be treated as a valued customer. Very very knowledgeable and a pleasure to put my trust in. Looking forward to taking my car back in a couple of months for a service. Richard even arranged to drop off my car as I was working late. First class service by a true professional company at very reasonable prices. What else can you ask for!! Thanks again Richard and all your team for a fantastic job.

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.


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.


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.


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. 



If you're looking for car servicing, repairs, diagnostic or tuning, For your Vw, Audi, Seat or  Skoda drop us a line.
