"Garage doesn’t give a good impression from the beginning as the car park is chaos and has no spaces anywhere, cars parked in roads etc. Staff seemed unclear as to what was booked in, had to be reminded of the various bits of service required. They were unable to fix my boot as they didn’t have a part for my Peugeot which is fair enough as they are a Vauxhall garage but they knew well in advance that I wanted it fixed as part of the service and did not get in touch to find out what the issue was. Tried to overcharge me for engine diagnostics and I had to show the email booking from bookmygarage to get it reduced to correct price. Not great overall and wouldn’t go back."

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.
