"Matt is always very friendly and helpful"
"I was quite pleased with the work done - I was fully informed at every stage if any further work was needed. I was made aware of the costs in advance. They drained and replaced my brake fluid at no charge since apparently the wrong fluid was put into the reservoir at some point (Not by them). And to top it all off they washed it before I picked it up. Prices were reasonable considering the labour and costs involved."
Great service as ever
"I have had four vehicles in the last fifteen years, all of them have been serviced and repaired at Five Square. They are efficient, honest and give good value for money. When you find something that you like, you tend to stick with it, so I keep going back and the service is still top quality."
"Great people skills and very honest rather than trying to get money out of you if its not needed"
Quick and reliable
"Amazing work as always. Fast and reliable never have any complaints"
The brakes on your car utilise fluid pressure.
When the brake pedal is depressed, it activates a plunger in the master cylinder,
which pressurises the brake fluid in the pipes and hoses causing the brake components to move.
Brake repairs are one of the most common reasons to visit a garage; all cars need their brake discs and pads replaced at regular intervals. Some of the warning signs for brake failure are squealing or grinding noises when depressing the brakes, or the brake feeling 'spongy' when the pedals is pressed. And of course if you need to brake increasingly hard to effectively slow or stop your car, then you could well be looking at brake replacement.
There are two main types of brake systems: disc brakes and drum brakes.
Disc brake systems are comprised of two pads per wheel, which clamp down on the brake disc when the brake pedal is depressed. When the fluid becomes pressurised, it sends a plunger in the calliper forward, forcing the brake pads on either side of the brake disc to squeeze it, which results in the slowing and stopping of the car.
Drum brakes operate in the same way as disc brakes, but with a different design. They both use friction to slow and stop the car, but drum brakes use shoes, instead of pads. The shoes are inside the steel brake drum itself, which spins with the wheel. When brake pressure is applied, a component called the wheel cylinder expands, forcing the brake shoes apart and towards the inside edge of the drum. Drum brakes are usually found on older vehicles, or just on the rear brake system.
