Brakes show many signs of possible failure and as they stop your vehicle should be checked regularly around every 6 months or so.
Some signs of wear include poor braking performance, squealing, grinding noises, pulsation in the brake pedal, clicking noises or car pulling to one side whilst braking.
Other more obvious signs ABS light on, excessive drag when you accelerate or even complete loss of brake pedal control in any of these instances call us for a quote.Find your brakes
A few signs that your battery is not working normally. Electrical systems are usually the first things affected by battery wear, you may notice your car’s radio, lighting and windscreen wipers may act differently than beforehand.
Another sign is a strong smell coming from the battery often likened to rotten eggs. This is caused by your battery attempting to ‘overcharge’ itself. This is often as a result of a fault in the charging system and can cause the same thing to a brand new battery.Find your battery
