Our Bristol Repair Garage Services

Car Servicing:

We can perform regular maintenance checks and oil changes to ensure your car is in optimum condition. We’ll inspect your car’s vital components, such as the brakes, tyres, lights, fluids, and filters, and replace or repair them if needed. We’ll also stamp your service book and reset your service indicator, so you can keep track of your car’s service history.

Our regular car servicing includes interim and major servicing, with a full range of servicing options to suit you and your car.


We can diagnose any issues with your car using the latest equipment and software and advise you on the best course of action. Whether it’s a warning light, a strange noise, or a performance problem, we’ll find the root cause and fix it for you. We can also clear any fault codes and reset your engine management system, so you can enjoy a smooth and trouble-free drive.

Car Repairs:

We can fix any problems with your car, from brakes, brake pad replacement, alternator replacement, cambelt replacement, clutch replacement, exhaust system repair and replacement, mechanical repairs, and batteries, all always using high-quality parts, dealer diagnostic systems, and materials. 

We have our own body shop and offer quality accident repairs, anything from minor dents and scratches to full body repairs. We are a body repair specialist for insurance claims repairs, and we’ll provide you with a detailed quote before we start any work. We will only do what you approve. 

We guarantee our work for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first, giving you peace of mind. Our experienced technicians have worked in the industry and for main dealers for many years and have the knowledge necessary to fix your vehicle to the highest main dealer standards.

Air Conditioning Recharge, Service & Repairs:

We can keep your car cool and comfortable by servicing and repairing your air conditioning system, as well as recharging it with the right refrigerant. We’ll check your system for leaks, clean the evaporator and condenser, replace the cabin filter, and top up the gas (re-gas) and lubricant. We’ll also test the system for proper operation and efficiency, ensuring you get the best performance from your air conditioning.


We can carry out MOT tests and retests for your car and issue you with a certificate if it passes, or help you with any repairs if it fails. We’ll check your car’s safety and emissions standards, such as the brakes, steering, suspension, lights, tyres, exhaust, seat belts, windscreen, and mirrors. We’ll also offer you a free re-test within 10 working days if your car fails the first time; however, for the majority of repairs, we are likely able to do it quickly to get your car back on the road with minimal inconvenience to you.

Performance Tuning and Re-Mapping:

We can enhance the performance and efficiency of your car by tuning and re-mapping its engine using the best software and tools. We’ll optimise your car’s fuel injection, ignition timing, air intake, turbo boost, and other parameters, giving you more power, torque, and responsiveness. We’ll also improve your car’s fuel economy and emissions, saving you money and reducing your environmental impact.

The Importance of Regular Timing Belt Changes

One of the most important parts of your car is the timing belt, which synchronises the movement of the pistons and valves in your engine. If the timing belt fails, it can cause serious damage to your engine, resulting in costly repairs or even a replacement.

That’s why it’s vital to change your timing belt regularly, according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Usually, this is every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, but it may vary depending on your car model and driving conditions.

At AP Autocare, we can check the condition of your timing belt and replace it if necessary, using the best quality belts and components. We can also advise you on how often you should change your timing belt, based on your car’s specifications and history.
