"Really nice guys, kept me informed as the day went on and gave me the loan of a car whilst mine was being looked at. Price was good and work was excellent."
Very positive experience
"Very competitive price, and I liked the fact that a lift to or from home was offered online as part of the deal, though I did not use this service. Service light reset, service book updated. Just one small point: Total bill, as per website, simply stated total amount as being labour, whereas it would have been helpful to note on invoice that oil, filter etc had been replaced, even though this was ticked on service booklet."
Couldn't fault them
"No issues with our service and mot. Car needed a new tyre which they sourced and advised price prior. Happy with service."
"Very Happy with service, kept informed about work needed. Great garage will definitely use again."
"Great book online service which helps you decide whats best for you. Garage kept me updated on what was happening with the car and car all cleaned and ready to go on pick up. Would highly recommend.(female driver)"
"I would usually take my car to my local Arnold Clark for its service and MOT to a freelance mechanic in Braehead. This year I thought to use Drivers Autocentre on Firpark Street as I was quoted a good price online. They also provide a lift service and car loan which I took so that I could get about and not having to wait. My car has a problem of not passing the emissions test when it comes to the MOT. However, not only did it passed its emissions test and MOT I also saved a few hundred £'s if I had to take it to the mechanic in Braehead. Drivers Autocentre informed me by phone if any extra work was needed to be done and when my car was ready to be collected. Very good price and excellent service. I now know where to go for my car mechanical needs from now on."
"The mechanics here undertook a custom welding repair of my (very old) exhaust replacing the bad bits but keeping the DPF and CAT. Had some issues along the way but cost was not passed on to me and they even cleaned my DPF and forced a regen when it was clear that the reassembled exhaust had un-diagnosed DPF blockage - again at no extra cost. Would wholeheartedly recommend these guys for their pride in their work and their competence. Jamie, the shop manager couldn't have been more helpful in terms of his his initial advice and his feedback on later exhaust/DPF issues. Will use again."
"I dropped the car off at 9am and work was done within 2 hours. Excellent customer service."
"As usual always happy with anything I get done at bb autos the staff are great Brian as always very helpful can't do enough for his customers. Service with a smile as usual boys"
"Fast and friendly. Great local business."
Hassle free service
"Very pleased with the work carried out and the level of customer service I received from Jamie was top notch! Thanks again"
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.
