Tulse Hill’s Amtec Motors is the first port of call for South London motorists – including those in Brixton, Clapham, East Dulwich, Streatham and West Norwood – in need of car repairs. We have a fully kitted out garage and a team of seasoned mechanics who have been diagnosing and remedying mechanical issues of all types since 1989, when our garage first began trading.
While we’re perhaps best known as specialists for VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda, we work on all makes and models of vehicle. As an independent garage, not only do we provide a more tailored and friendly service than large chain companies like nation fast fits and dealerships, but we ensure you can get your vehicle back safely on the road at a distinctly affordable price.
So if you’ve noticed a drop-off in performance, a strange smell or sound, or a light lit up on your dashboard, don’t hesitate to pay Amtec Motors a visit. Our Tulse Hill garage is just a short while from our principal service areas of Brixton, Clapham, East Dulwich, Streatham and West Norwood, and we even provide an ultra-convenient pick up and drop off service for clients in a 5-mile radius.
It’s true that there are a huge number of nuanced issues that can effect vehicles; some are only ever found with particular models due to their individual features and build. And while our mechanics are comfortable performing car repairs to deal with any issue under the sun, we’ve jotted down a few of the most common problems experienced by Brixton, Clapham, East Dulwich, Streatham and West Norwood motorists. We hope it will help you be better aware of the symptoms of mechanical failure that many experience.
Tyre Changes – Straight forward as far as car repairs go, there are a range of reasons you might require a new set of tyres: a serious puncture, structural damage to the outside of the tyre, or a lack of tread depth are most common. You are legally required to have at least 1.6mm of depth on your tyres, so should you see yours wearing down, pay us a visit! Otherwise, you could both be putting your safety at risk (due to increased stopping distance) and be in danger of a fine and points on your licence.
Clutch Replacement – Usually due to wear and tear over a long enough timespan, clutch replacement is one of the most common car repairs we carry out at Amtec Motors. Signs you might need to swap out your clutch include slippage, difficulty changing gear, and a jarring noise when clutch is engaged.
Electrical Issues – Examples of electrical problems include loose or damaged wiring running to your lights or wipers, causing them to work erratically or stop working altogether, or an electronic dashboard displaying the wrong information. It’s a broad category, containing a diverse range of problems.
Brake Pads & Disc Replacement – Is your car not slowing down as quickly/effectively as it used to? Or perhaps there’s a squeaking or grinding noise that resounds when you apply your brakes? Other signs symptomatic of brake pad or disc failure include vibration when braking, visual signs of wear, and the Brake Warning light illuminating – which we urge Brixton, Clapham, East Dulwich, Streatham and West Norwood motorists not to put off investigating; while it might be a minor issue such as pad/disc wear, it could also be something far more serious.
