How much do you know about how your car’s brakes function?
When you press on the brake pedal, the brake cylinder is activated. It delivers brake fluid to the callipers which will engage the brake pads. Your brake pads apply pressure to the rotors, which creates friction – this is how your car stops.
We provide repairs to:
- Brake pipes, brake boosters & brake masters
- New brake discs, drums, brake pads
- Skimming of drums & brake discs
- Wheel cylinders
- ABS sensors
In a manual car, you need a clutch. It allows a smooth engagement between a constantly spinning engine with a non-spinning transmission; essentially, it controls slippage between
the two mechanisms. If the clutch isn’t activated at the correct time, e.g., when you’re
changing gears, the engine will stall.
Did you know that cars with automatic transmission also have clutches? Even though there is no physical clutch pedal, there are four clutches which are triggered by pressurised hydraulic fluid. These will experience wear and tear over time and will need to be repaired once they’ve reached a certain distance.
We provide repairs to:
- Hydraulic & cable clutches
- Clutch masters & slave cylinders
- Skimming of flywheels
