"So grateful to BSmart. Great service, friendly staff! Had my car checked at Kwik Fit as I didn't know BSmart at that time, and their price for the service was so expensive that I had to consider buying another car basically. But I've found BSmart and they've done a great job! Saved me a lot of money! Can't thank you enough!"
"Fast, professional and reasonably priced. Found my new garage"
Going straight now!
"All good, other than technician had dirty boots."

"I paid £35 for my MOT on the Saturday for it to fail it’s MOT and then to tell me my tyres needed re setting and that would be £30 when I late round out all you had to do was press a button and that should not be an urgent fail on a MOT only and advisory. Then also my bonnet would mysteriously not open and it failed due to that which I was told would cost me £60 to open my bonnet so really not understanding that. I then took my car to a family friends garage to get an MOT to which is passed first time with no advisory’s as the bonnet opened first down and there was nothing wrong with it. So I am not happy at all and would like someone to contact me ASAP and I would like a full refund it’s absolutely ridiculous!!"
"Happy as was informed of work to be done and the price was good. Had a time constraint and they managed to do it in the timeframe"

"I've used Bsmart a few times and they've always been really good and honest, couldn't recommend enough"
"Amazing customer service, quick and efficient from the mechanics!"
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.
