Great overall service
"Great garage, super staff. The only bad thing would be never informed me when the work was complete. Apart fro that though, 5 star service! Will go back again"
"It’s always an inconvenience not having the car at my beck and call 24/7 but given it needs a service and MOT annually Caruth Jordanhill ease the pain as much as possible. They offer excellent service, are easy to communicate with and I trust them. I needed brake pads to pass the MOT which wasn’t unreasonable given the cars almost 7 years old. They also advised I would need 3 new tyres in 1000 miles or so and gave me a price for low, medium and high quality tyres. Although there was no pressure to do so I had the tyres done at the same time to avert the inconvenience of booking it back in again and they replaced the 4th tyre for no extra cost."
All good thanks
"Good work and very reasonable pricing"
"Been using this garage for over 2 years and always had good service at a great value."
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.
