"I live locally and wanted to put a recently purchased used car through a check, so I booked in for an MOT and service. The MOT revealed that there was minor work required on the brakes (as suspected), so the staff informed me straight away. They came back with a fair price for parts and labour. They arranged a car pick up and delivery which was great. The work took a little longer than expected, but I think this was due to the volume of work they had on that day. Overall pleased with the service and I will probably use them again in the future."
Very good service
"Great from start to finish picked car up and later drop car of really nice people"
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.
The up-side for visitors is that Manchester is a fast paced, exciting, thriving city that never sleeps; the down side for drivers is that it is the 12th most congested city in Europe. Mancunians work hard and play hard. The old Industrial Revolution symbol of the worker bee, which still adorns the mosaic floors of the Town Hall, seems as appropriate now as it was during Manchester’s industrial heyday.
