Don’t be fooled by looks
"I must admit when I arrived I did think it was a mistake. I’m more used to Ford owned garages with posh receptions. This from the outside reminded me of a car grave yard. But friendly staff soon made me feel more confident. The staff were great. Ben introduced his self and explained what work had been done and the prices were very competitive. All in all a real gem. Actually felt the staff valued your custom and were genuinely proud f their work. Really impressed."

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.
Located in the Thames Valley to the west of London, Reading in Berkshire is not too well-known as one of Britain’s must-visit towns. However, once you get there, you’ll discover a surprising amount of things to see and do. It is sometimes described as being on London’s commuter belt but the influx of daily traffic outweighs the outflow due to the large number of tech companies and international businesses which have made Reading their home.
