Car Maintenance and Servicing - Frequently Asked Questions

Here at Beadles, we recognise that many vehicle owners find car maintenance confusing, even daunting – but are either too embarrassed to ask for help, or have difficulty recognising problems in the first place.

That’s why we’ve compiled this list of FAQs to provide succinct but helpful answers to the queries we most often get, from the common to the complex. Whether you’re wondering when to change your battery, or are unsure how often your air conditioning needs to be serviced, we have answers. They will either help you solve the problem yourself or pursue a professional servicing department.

We’re aiming to update this page regularly to grow our library of answers. However, if you can’t yet find what you’re looking for, the experienced Beadles aftersales team are on hand to help. Click Contact Numbers in the top right to access location and brand-specific numbers for our aftersales teams in Kent and Essex. No question is too big or too small – we will endeavour to help you and point you in the right direction when it comes to the maintenance and servicing of your Vauxhall, Toyota, Volkswagen, Land Rover, Kia, Jaguar, or ŠKODA.
