"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"
Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS' as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
In the early days of the automotive industry, power-assisted steering was a luxury and was only available in high-end vehicles. Most new cars now have it as standard. That’s because they’ve become heavier, with wider tyres and front wheel drive, and would be extremely difficult to drive without PAS. This makes a car not only more pleasant to drive, but safer to drive too.
There are two types of hydraulic power-assisted steering: rack & pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack & pinion is the most common. The recirculating ball is far less common and only really exists in vans and trucks. Both have high-pressure hoses that connect the steering rack to the two sides of the centre seal. One hose sends hydraulic fluid from the power-steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other directs fluid back to the pump. When turned left or right, the steering wheel’s steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to respective side of the steering rack, pushing the seal and rack in the necessary direction.
Electric power-assisted steering is fully electric. The wheels of the car receive direct assistance from an electric motor which is mounted on either the steering rack or steering column or directly to the steering rack. Sensors decide how much assistance to apply at any time.
When hydraulic fluid lubricates and seals the power-steering pump and hoses to prevent corrosion it can leak or gradually become less effective, making it harder to turn the steering wheel. Typically, a mechanic will check hydraulic fluid levels during an annual service.
If the electric motor fails, power-assisted steering will stop working, so the motor would need replacing. As with any electrical system, software problems can occur, necessitating an update.
