    Took the VW Tiguan in because all the dash board warning lights were coming on, we took the car to other garages but they couldn’t fix it, so finally went to Bowydd garage which is about 25 miles away from home, but boy was it worth it. Not only did they find the problem and fix it, they supplied us with a car while it was being done. No fuss, no dramas. Everything was explained to us in... Read More

    I highly recommend this garage! They are professional, curtious and always helpful. My car has gone in a couple of times and they have always found and fixed the problem quickly, to a high standard and without an inflated bill. I Definitely endorse their work.

    Unfortunately not a good experience! Charged £120 to code my towbar electronics onto the Octavia, but only managed part of the job. Went back with the trailer on in case that helped, but still not completed. Felt a guinea pig, where they were trying to work out how to do it, at my expense. Another specialist got it sorted, whilst doing some other work...

    Excellent service when my Landrover discovery 4 developed a problem while on holiday in North Wales.
    The guys there could not have been more helpful. They gave their time to help us out.

    They managed to fit me in a short notice for brake pad / disk replacement on my Octavia Vrs which threw a warning light whilst on holiday. The work was completed by knowledgeable technician (who owned a similar car) to a high standard and reasonable price whilst we went for a walk in the local area. Recommended

    This is the first time I have used their services, and it won't be the last.
    I have had my Range Rover Sport serviced at a main dealer for the last 5 years until I heard about Garej Bowydd. I had a problem with the air suspension which Callum and Lee sorted. At the same time I asked them to replace the rear disks and pads which Range Rover had only done 10K ago.
    They were seized,... Read More

How do I know if need my brakes repairing?

If your brakes need attention, it’s usually pretty obvious something is wrong. Once you have your suspicions, we highly recommend that you come and get your brakes checked as soon as possible.

Not only do faulty brakes cause accidents, but if left, they also become much more expensive to repair.

Call To Book Your Brake Check

We’ll keep you safe in a car you can trust.

Simply call to book now.

Here are a few of the most common signs that your brakes need looking at:

  • Your vehicle’s brake warning light is on
  • You hear a squealing or grinding noise when you brake
  • While driving, your brakes lose stopping power gradually
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side

Because we offer a free brake check, you should never hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns.

However, if you’re after something more comprehensive to give you 100% reassurance that your brakes are optimal, here’s what we cover in our comprehensive brake check:

Signs To Have Your Brakes Checked Bowydd Garage

Comprehensive Brake Check


We begin by checking the performance of all your brakes and the brake balance.


Next, we check and adjust how the handbrake operates to ensure there’s no room for error.


Front brake pads are checked for serviceability, then stripped and refit if necessary. As with any checks, we’ll consult you before performing any additional repairs.


We’ll measure your front brake discs for how they perform, including run out. Then, we perform the exact same checks on your rear brakes.


After your brake discs and pads are confirmed as being efficient, we’ll test your brake fluid and top it up where required.


Your brake callipers and wheel cylinders are inspected for serviceability.


And, the condition of all brake hoses and hydraulic lines are checked too.


Finally, we’ll carry out a diagnostic scan of the ABS and traction control system for any historic or current fault code.

How much do brakes cost?

You’ll always get our best price at Bowydd Garage. Our services cover all requirements and budgets. So, we’ll always be able to accommodate you. And, of course, great value – guaranteed. For front brake discs, pads and sensors prices start from £185.
