Apart from accidents, MOT's and servicing, Magnet Autos also deal with the more usual things which go wrong from time to time, some causing inconvenience, some which are illegal, and some which are downright dangerous.
Brakes are an essential part of a safe vehicle. Poor brakes can increase your stopping distance and increases your chances of rear-ending a driver in front, leaving you with the blame from insurers.
Magnet Autos in Liverpool offer a totally free, no-obligation brake check. In between services and MOT's a cars brakes can still become dangerous, if in any doubt about your brakes, contact Magnet Autos (link to bookings)now to book your free brake check. Our qualified technicians will test your brakes and tell you whether they need replacing.
The clutch is an essential mechanism, allowing you to change gears when you're driving. It's not just a case of pushing a pedal up and down with your foot; under the bonnet your clutch plates spring open and then close to allow you to change gear. Over time the plates can become worn, or the spring mechanism can fail – either way you'll need a new clutch. To see if you need your clutch replacing contact us (link to contact) now, and we'll give you a free assessment in our Liverpool garage.

Exhausts and Catalytic Converters
Magnet Autos are highly skilled and experienced in checking and replacing exhaust systems. The exhaust carries out an enormous amount of work and can also be vulnerable to damage from erosion and speed humps. It is in use all of the time that the engine is running, making it a vital component which must be maintained.
Catalytic converters were added to all cars from 1993 onwards, their job is to remove harmful emissions from the exhaust gas. The functioning of the converter is even more important now as it affects your ability to get an MOT certificate.
If either your exhaust system or catalytic converter are damaged or performing poorly, then we can install brand new replacements at our garage. As we are independent we can get top quality replacements for you, at far less than dealership prices. For extra peace of mind, we also give you a 1 year unlimited mileage guarantee on any exhaust system which we have fitted.
