Timing Belt Service

If you’re in Richmond, Short Pump, the West End, or the Fan District and your BMW, MINI, or Audi are in need of timing belt check or replacement, bring it into Bimmer Rescue’s state-of-the-art auto repair shop. Our highly trained auto mechanics specialize in European automobiles and are at-the-ready with the latest training and technology to quickly and accurately assess any timing-belt issues your valued European vehicle is dealing with. We know that timing belts are an expensive fix, but we also know that if you wait until yours breaks, not only will you be stranded on the side of the road, but you could be faced with an even bigger auto repair bill.

The auto technicians at Bimmer Rescue put you and your safety first, but never at the cost of integrity. Patrick McHugh, the owner of Bimmer Rescue, places a high value on honesty and knows the importance of long-term customer relationships. He knows that a welcoming environment goes a long way when it is coupled with skills, knowledge, and professionalism. His team will deliver a visual inspection report to you, so you will have confidence in any repair decision you make, whether you need a new timing belt or not. His team of master technicians will never try to sell you on anything you do not need.

We are so proud of the stellar reputation our auto mechanics have earned for timing belts service and repair among Richmond, Short Pump, the West End, and the Fan District drivers. Check out this recent 5-star review:

“Thank you!  I had a leak in the back on the driver side and could not figure out where the water was coming in.  I took it to a couple of other garages and both assured me it was the drains from the sunroof that were clogged.  I had one of them clean the drains and I thought that was that.  I ran it through a car wash and the water was still there.  I called one of the shops and they recommended Bimmer Rescue. 

I took my car to Bimmer Rescue and described the problem.  Showed them where I thought the water was coming in and left the car there.  I was called early the next day with a description of the problem and what was required to take care of it.  Long story short, no more water!  Even with the crazy rain we’ve had, no more water.  I would highly recommend these guys.  Kyle was great and the service techs did a wonderful job. While they had my car they performed an in-depth inspection and sent me the report. I was told my 2012 328i is in great condition.  There were a few non critical recommendations which I'll let them take care of when required.Thanks so much Bimmer Rescue.  I will be seeing you again for routine maintenance and if there are any issues that ever come up.” -- Michael S.
