Mobile mechanic in Dudley , 8 years of experience

“My local garage had investigated and said I needed a new water pump for my Vauxhall Astra. They quoted me £350, I thought that was a bit steep, a quick Google later I ended up here for a £140!

Rhys was amazing! Rhys agreed that it was my water pump at fault, and explained how he knew that (my antifreeze had crystallized on the engine block).
Super friendly, very knowledge, and a great communicator.

The work was carried out quickly (my local garage said they would need the car all day, and Rhys did the job in 90 mins) and efficiently. The car actually runs better than before, as the temperature used to bounce between 89C - 105C (this was before the water pump started leaked). Now the car rarely if ever exceeds 90C.

I would highly recommend Rhys if you are in the West Midlands area.

I'll be back for my MOT and full service!“

What does a battery cable do?

The battery cables are used to bring power from the battery to all the other electrical equipment in the car.

When should you consider having your car's battery cable replaced?

Over time, the condition of the battery leads can deteriorate. Usually the battery leads corrode, especially at the connectors to the battery. In other cases it might be that cracks appear in the cable's plastic coating due to being exposed to the high temperature fluctuations in the engine bay.

When the leads have corroded it will cause a bad connection in the electrical system. It is therefore important to replace the battery leads when they are damaged or corroded. The lead can, when it is damaged, not transfer the correct current to the other parts of the electrical system leading to a numerous other issues. Always service the battery cables as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
