"I am very happy with the quality of work and the friendliness of the staff. I was kept informed of any work that was needed before it was undertaken. I'm now going to book my MOT with them and will continue to use the garage."
"Well, it was my first time there. There were great people. The only problem I had was that there was no enough signs to tell where to aceess the reception. I entered the garage and was trying to access the reception through the obvious door at the main working area. I realised later that the door to the reception was completely invicible to new guests. I was looking stupid trying to access the reception through the visible entrance door meant for only staff. Well, there are seats for guests, which is good. I booked further appointment but could not turn up, such a shame for me."
"Great service with complimentary refreshments even came back to a shiny clean car as a bonus!"
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.
