VW Air Con

Your air conditioning system can lose as much as 10% of its gas each year. Unless it is replaced the system will become less able to keep you cool and refreshed when it needs to.

What if my system is not serviced?

The system will continue to lose gas and become increasingly less efficient. It will also result in an increase in fuel consumption. Eventually, the system will fail requiring replacement parts.

What our technicians will do

We drain and recharge the system; check hoses, filters, belts and connections; and make sure the compressor and condenser are working correctly.

How often does it need to be cleaned?

Ideally every 24 months.

Brake Fluid Change from £55

Brake fluid must withstand operating temperatures of up to 230°C but over time absorbs water which boils at 100°C. As the water boils, it turns to compressible vapour which means you won't be able to brake as efficiently.

Why change the Brake Fluid?

If too much moisture builds up, the brake fluid can boil while you're braking, seriously affecting performance. It can cause the brakes to fail. A spongy feel to the brake pedal shows you this has started to happen.

What we will do

We check the level and look for leaks. We drain the system and fill it with new brake fluid. We test the system and record it in your service book.

When should I change the brake fluid?

At year 3 and every 2 years after that.
