The majority of motorists in Aldershot and Farnham who choose Ash Autos as their trusted automotive specialists come to us for car servicing and MOT services. The repair side of our services, such as brake replacements and clutch repairs, focus on non-serviceable parts. We explain more about these two important elements of our business below, and also provide a brief insight into vehicle diagnostics – one of our most modern analytical services.
Ash Autos also offers a full supporting range of automotive solutions, designed to keep our Aldershot, Farnham, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex customers on the road. Our garage welcomes enquiries and work from private motorists and members of the trade.
Reliable slowing and stopping, in all traffic conditions, is an important part of road safety. While our technicians check the condition of the braking system during a service, pads, shoes, discs and drums wear down at different speeds. Most drivers recognise the need for brake replacements when their vehicles act erratically when coming to a stop. Left unchecked, worn brake parts present a danger to road users and to pedestrians.
Motorists in Aldershot, Farnham and the surrounding areas with concerns over the performance of their braking systems can arrange an inspection at Ash Autos. If our technicians identify sign of wear, we’ll book you in for prompt brake replacements and perform the required work using original or compliant OEM components.
Poor clutch performance has an impact on road safety too but the biggest concerns over inconsistent gear changing has to be the premature wear of potentially expensive parts and the cost of replacing them. Clutch repairs preserve the integrity of the transmission system, promote smoother performance when switching between gears and eliminate frustrating driving characteristics such as slipping, juddering and the potential for oil contamination.
At Ash Autos, we undertake clutch repairs for Aldershot and Farnham motorists using a choice of new or reconditioned parts based on their budgets. Because we’re a local business for local people, we also take the time to discuss your driving characteristics and identify potential reasons for premature clutch wear, such as riding or indecisive gear changing.
This modern repair service is actually an analysis of the engine management system, undertaken using advanced code reading technology. Modern cars have an engine control unit (ECU) to monitor performance and identify faults in the subsystem. Dashboard warning lights alert Aldershot, Farnham and Hampshire motorists to potential faults, and we recommend booking in for vehicle diagnostics as soon as warning lights come on.
Our technicians plug directly into the ECU port using our manufacturer-approved equipment, and the vehicle diagnostics process retrieves stored fault codes. This helps Ash Autos to pinpoint where the problem lies, and assists our technicians in identifying the most suitable repair method without extensive mechanical troubleshooting or high labour costs.
