Service / Timing Belt / Chain replacements


The purpose of a car service is to check and replace the parts which wear down over time and use. Some parts, such as oil and brake pads need checking more reguarly than others, such as the fuel filter and spark plugs. Every car is different, so to find out what needs replacing when on your vehicle (known as 'service intervals'), you should check your manufacturer's handbook.

Changing the belt is a periodic change that should be done at most every 100,000 km or five years. Distribution belts are available in a variety of different vehicles, but we do not detect anything, but S&M Auto Care Service will help you to service your car and change the main belt or chain.

We do the following:

  • Check battery.
