Seat Servicing


Autotec Northwest is the Northwest premier independent SEAT specialist, offering dealer level support and diagnostics at affordable prices.

The new block exemption rules mean you no longer have to use a main dealer for servicing your car whilst under warranty.

Servicing your car at Autotec northwest will not affect your manufacturers warranty and will save you money. Autotec Northwest is situated on Heron business Park, Tanhouse lane Widnes close to the Hive Leisure Park and widnes Retail Park.

Autotec specialise in all types of SEAT vehicles, warranty approved servicing, modifications and performance tuning. We can provide the highest level of service and commitment to both you and your SEAT.


There is no better place to have your car serviced than at Autotec Northwest.

We pride ourselves on ensuring that you and your vehicle receive a high level of care and attention. We only use quality and high-grade Oil. Our oil prices reflect this, please take this into consideration when comparing our oil change prices to other workshop Once the service has been completed, your vehicle will be subjected to further quality control checks and road-tests (if required) to ensure all points have been satisfied to the manufacturers recommendations. Dashboard lights are reset and your service book will be stamped.

Autotec Northwest offer the following SEAT approved service schedules


SEAT Time & Distance Service is a more traditional service regime which takes place every 9,000 miles or 1 year (whichever occurs first). We recommend this service if you are likely to drive your SEAT less than 10,000 miles in a year, you mainly drive short distances with lots of stopping, starting and cold starts, you drive your SEAT primarily around town, or you enjoy a more ‘spirited’ driving style!

To book your SEAT ‘Time and Distance’ service, please call us on 0151 495 1296 or email us at


The SEAT Long Life Service is so called because there are no fixed service intervals and depending on how you drive your SEAT, a service will be required anywhere between 10,000 miles or 1 year (whichever occurs first), up to a maximum of 19,000 miles or 2 years (whichever occurs first).

The SEAT Long Life Service has been made possible thanks to the development of new Volkswagen Audi Group engines using very high specification Long Life oil. These engines have built-in sensors to constantly monitor the oil quality, making it possible to enjoy longer service intervals.

We recommend the SEAT Long Life Service if you drive more than 12,000 miles a year, regularly drive long distances, or your car is less than 7 years old.

To book your SEAT ‘Long Life’ servce, please call us on 0151 495 1296 or email us at


If your cambelt breaks, major damage can be caused to engine valves and pistons – damage that can be very costly to put right. Your SEAT cambelt must be renewed no later than the maximum change interval (this depends on model but typically ranges from 40,000 to 120,000 miles) Or after the recommended four years, whichever is the sooner. Your service book should state the correct details. Please contact us if you would like a price on a Cambelt replacement.
