Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Tyres

Brakes, steering, suspension and tyres are major safety components.


They all fail eventually due to wear and tear. The failure of one part can affect the performance of another.


Regular inspection and repair when needed will help keep your vehicle safer to drive. 


I can adjust or renew all parts of disc or drum brakes, including brake pads, shoes, brake discs and brake pistons.


From worn pads to warped discs, or stuck brake calipers and leaking brake hoses, I can check and replace or repair all brake systems. 


Please get in touch to arrange brake repairs in Plymouth.


Depending on the age of the vehicle, a steering system can comprise of the steering wheel, shaft, box, steering rack, linkage, pinion, tie rods, steering shaft, bearings and wheels.


Faults are obvious when the steering is hard to turn, shakes or makes unusual noises; squeaking, whirring or grunts. You may notice fluid leaks and stains.


I can inspect, repair or replace all steering system components.


Please get in touch to arrange steering repair in Plymouth.


Suspension systems vary and can include shock absorbers, struts, coil springs, leaf springs, dampers, anti-roll bars, axles, diffs, control arms and wishbones.


They combine to support the vehicle weight, maintain ride height and absorb bumps in the road.


If faults develop, you may notice your vehicle dips when braking, or bounces excessively over bumps. It may lean to one side or no longer drive smoothly. 


Please get in touch to arrange suspension repair in Plymouth.


Tyres keep your vehicle in contact with the road and provide grip, for safer driving.


If faults develop, you may notice an uneven pattern of tread wear, a bald spot on the tread or a bulge in the tyre wall.


I can supply, fit and balance new tyres, including winter tyres. I don’t repair punctures and don’t supply used tyres.


Because I am a sole trader, I prefer to fit tyres as part of other work such as repairs or servicing. 


Please get in touch to arrange tyre fitting with repairs or servicing in Plymouth.
