"Brilliant service, car was collected from my place of work with no issues, I was kept informed during the work, all repairs needed were completed with the car returned to my work before I had finished. I will be using them again next year! "
"Member of staff was very helpful and talked through everything. Was not kept updated throughout though"
"I booked my car in for a service and health check. The service was completed and I was called back to let me know what was checked and the work needed to be done. A couple of bits needed doing straight away, which they did. I was called later to confirm the work was done. I collected my car which had also been cleaned at no cost to me. At the same time I booked the car for a couple of of other bits that needed to be done. Took the car in again and received a call back from the garage letting me know the car was ready. Both times I borrowed a car from the garage while the work was done with no problems. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. Never pushy. They advise rather than tell. They go the extra mile to provide really great customer service."
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.
