Timing Belt Replacement

Here at Arbury we are committed to keeping your car running smoothly, and our timing belt replacement service is an important part of this.

The timing belt (also known as a cambelt) is a vital part of your car, as it helps to control the timing of the moving parts in your engine. Over time, this rubber-based component can deteriorate – and if it fails, it can cause costly damage to your vehicle,  ranging from causing an accident to requiring a whole new engine.

Please check the Service Schedule in your handbook for our recommended replacement intervals. If unsure, please contact your local Arbury – we will be more than happy to assist. If your timing belt is due for a replacement, we recommend booking an appointment as soon as possible. Here at Arbury, we offer a timing belt replacement from just £399 – simply fill out the form and we can book you in or answer any questions you may have.

Windscreen wiper blade replacement

Windscreen wipers are a key safety feature of your car, as they keep your view of the road clear, especially in adverse weather conditions. It is therefore important to regularly check that your wiper blades are in good working order and, here at Arbury, we can help with this.

We recommend having your windscreen wipers checked at least once a year, as ineffective wipers could result in a failed MOT test, a scratched windscreen if the metal becomes exposed or, most worryingly, an accident due to not being able to see the road clearly. Our trained technicians will thoroughly check your blades to ensure that they still work as they should, and haven’t deteriorated. And if they do need replacing, we’ll fit new ones from just £29. Fill out the form at the bottom of the page to book a wiper blade check with Arbury.

There are some warning signs to look out for –

If you notice any of the points below, we recommend getting your wipers checked immediately:

  • Your wiper blades are noisy or don’t move smoothly 

  • They leave streaks or smears on the windscreen

  • They miss some parts of the windscreen, leaving them wet.

General Tyre Information:

Arbury provide quality service, value for money, expert advice and the confidence of manufacturer-trained technicians – all of which are vital when something as important as tyres are concerned. 

In recognition that the range of tyre types and brands available today can be quite bewildering, Arbury are on hand to guide you through your tyre choices, making sure that you purchase the correct product at the correct price.

British law requires your vehicle to be fitted with the correct type and size of tyre for the vehicle type you are driving. There are also laws in place to govern all aspects of your tyre's condition – the most important of these is the minimum tread depth. The legal limit for minimum depth of the tread on your tyres is 1.6 millimetres, across the central ¾ of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre. 

Your tyres are the only point of contact your vehicle has with the road. You can appreciate why it is vitally important that you select the right tyre type for the vehicle you are driving and for the purpose it is being used. We believe that motorists should get into a habit of checking all four tyres every two weeks for pressures and general condition – don’t forget to check the spare tyre too.

Changing Your Tyre:

Your tyres may need changing when you can notice deterioration in performance.

The fact that tyres wear gradually can make it difficult to identify the reduction in performance, so it's best to have them checked regularly, and preferably by an expert. As the driver, it is your responsibility to ensure that the tread on your tyres is not worn beyond the legal minimum limit of 1.6mm. To make this easier to identify, tyre manufacturers mould tread wear indicators (T.W.I) into the design of the tyre's tread pattern, usually at a tread level of 1.6mm. As soon as the tread is worn to the height of the tread wear indicator, the tyre has reached the legal minimum tread depth and you should replace the tyre as soon as possible. You should also be aware that there are many different reasons for tyre wear. 

Your tyres don't just get worn through age and use, but through emergency braking, under-inflation or over-inflation. And if your wheels are misaligned, one edge of the tyres can wear more rapidly than the other edge. At Arbury, we recommend a weekly walk around the car to check the tread, look for bulges or wear and to check tyre pressures every time you fill the tank.

New EU Regulations:

Manufacturers are now using a ‘traffic light system’ to label different aspects of their tyres.

Wet braking, noise, and rolling resistance are each rated between A and G on the new label, indicating the performance, safety and efficiency of the vehicle.

Keep an eye out for the new label and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. We’re happy to help find the right tyre for you.
