Timing Belts

Our expert technicians will assess your timing belt based on your car's mileage and age. Over time, your cambelt can become worn or damaged from regular use. As it's one of the most important components when it comes to your vehicle's engine, it's essential for it to be in good condition.


To get the very best fuel economy possible, and to reduce those CO2 emissions, you need to make sure that your car's exhaust pipe is in good condition. When you bring your car into us at Greenwood Auto Services, we'll advise you on your exhaust and carry out appropriate repairs and replacements, if necessary.

Signs to look out for exhaust failure?

  • Excessive smoking
  • Engine is unusually louder when driving
  • Knocking or rattling noise, indicating that something has come loose
  • Visible holes
  • A low-hanging or dragging pipe


We can offer a suspension repair if you experience a gradual loss in your car's performance. The main components in your suspension are a coil spring and shock absorber (dampener). These functions collectively protect your car by absorbing impacts from potholes and imperfections in the road. It's important to check that they are functioning correctly as worn shock absorbers can add up to two metres to your braking distance when travelling at 30mph.

Clutch and Gearbox Replacement

Greenwood's highly trained specialists will inspect your clutch and gearbox. We'll make sure that they are in good condition and get you safely back on the road again.

Warning signs of a worn or damaged Clutch or Gearbox

  • Clutch feeling spongy
  • Difficulty in changing gears
  • Slips and judders
  • Odd noises coming from your clutch or gearbox

Air Conditioning Recharge

Air conditioning is not only great for that summer heat, but it ultimately filters the air inside your car. It can filter out any pollen, pollutants and any airbourne bacteria, therefore greatly improving the condition of the air inside your vehicle. It's handy for demisting windows too, so it's important that it's working correctly all year.  We recommend having your air con system serviced with gas and lubricant every two years.
