"Dropped the car off first thing before work, got a call not too long after advising me of completion and was able to pick it up on my lunch. Very helpful chaps!"
"Thank you. All the team were helpful and my car was ready the same day. Courtesy car provided, and a free fuse change which was very kind. I would use them again."
"They picked my car up from home, did the MOT and service and let me know that a couple of things had to be done. When the work was complete they dropped my car off at home. I was not there when they dropped it off. I went and settled the bill the next day. Thank you great service."

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.
Cambridge is situated about 50 miles north-east of London in an area of level and relatively low-lying terrain just south of the Fens.
