There are many components that make up a typical car electrical system and to provide a flavour of the areas we can diagnose, repair or replace here is a short list; alternators, starter motors, ECU's, dynamos, belts, pulleys, tensioners, auxiliary belts, heaters, pumps, washers, distributors, power steering, lights, bulbs and so on. The list really is a long one. If the electrical fault on your vehicle is an obvious one we will quickly confirm and provide you with a competitive price for the repair or replacement. If it isn't that simple, then we can complete a diagnostic check both visual and via your ECU to attempt to track down the fault. Once this is successfully completed we will recommend the remedial work needed to resolve the issue. You can request a quotation using our online form: Quote Me!

However, for more complicated issues and/or longer repairs, we may be able to offer, subject to availability, a courtesy car for your convenience.

We offer a wide range of mechanical services Servicing, Repairs & Maintenance


Let Grease Monkey Garage take care of all your vehicle servicing needs!

We appreciate that the terminology used by different manufacturers to describe their vehicle service schedules can be a touch confusing. Our aim is to steer you in the right direction. Most manufacturer will provide a schedule for each type of service and we would recommend that you keep to these schedules, even in your vehicle is out of warranty. Failing which we would recommend a service every 12,000 miles or 12 months to improve your chances of trouble-free motoring.

Services are invariably described using the following language:

  • Oil & Filter Change
  • Interim Service
  • Full Service
  • Manufacturer Service

The latter will involve following the manufacturers schedule and specification in terms of service and parts. This type of service is essential if your vehicle is within the manufacturer’s warranty period.

But don’t worry, we will go through the various options available to you based on your needs, those of the vehicle, any specific manufacturer requirements and, of course, your budget. We can also offer a brake fluid service, air conditioning service and scheduled cambelt changes.

Repairs & MOT Preparation on all cars, 4x4's and light vans.

Even if you keep to the manufacturers recommendations vehicle parts will inevitably require maintenance, repair or replacement. After all, nothing lasts forever and here a Grease Monkey Garage we can deal with these issues on your behalf. Sometimes it may only require a little tweaking or adjustment but whatever the issue we can, following your instruction, get on with resolving the issue.

For smaller jobs we offer a 'Drop 's Go' service where you can leave your vehicle with us in the morning and collect it on your way home. Alternatively, subject to availability, we can provide a courtesy car for the duration of your repair.

Routine Maintenance, Diagnostics & Upgrades

The key to reliable motoring is a good maintenance regime and dealing with issues before they become expensive. All vehicles are subject to wear and tear and an MOT only covers the legal minimum standard for the road and, inevitably, it does not cover everything on your vehicle. Early, pre-emptive repairs can often prevent much larger expenses later or a complete failure. Whether you have a family vehicle, business vehicle or operate a fleet, we will be more than happy to maintain your vehicle or vehicles.

We can complete any of the following;

  • Winter Checks
  • Investigation and Diagnosis
  • MOT Preparations
  • DPF Cleaning
  • Regular checks for Fleet Operators
  • Upgrades & New Installations

We can complete retrofits on most mechanical or electrical parts. Let us know what you need

For fleet operators we can, subject to negotiations, keep a selection of routine maintenance parts 'on the shelf' such as mirrors, bulbs, batteries etc.
