Wiper blades

Why you should change your wiper blades?

When wiper blades become rough with an uneven surface. They begin to spread accumulated dust and dirt on the windscreen.

Many road traffic accidents are related to poor visibility, with defective wiper blades a common cause. In addition, having ineffective wiper blades can cause your vehicle to fail an MOT.

Air conditioning

Air conditioning is essential to your comfort and can contribute to your safety. It’s main purpose is to provide a comfortable environment inside your car, regardless of the outside temperature.

However, if your air conditioning system has been switched off for a while, who knows what it could be hiding? Condensation in the pipework combined with heat from the engine creates a breeding ground for bacteria and mould. And it’s not just unpleasant odours you’ll have to suffer, your health could also be effected with sore throats, sneezing and irritated eyes.

In addition, a vehicle that has an ineffective air conditioning system uses more fuel, meaning it’s costlier to run.

So why should you get your air conditioning checked?

If your air conditioning  system isn’t checked and serviced regularly it can deteriorate, causing:

  • Increasing difficulty in maintaining a comfortable temperature.
  • Musty or damp odours, as bacteria builds up inside the system.
  • Windows steam up when it is damp outside
  • An escape of refrigerant gas, leading to an ineffective operation and increased fuel consumption

Pollen Filters

What does a pollen filter do?

A pollen filter is designed to protect you from airborne particles (dust, pollen, fumes, bacteria, pollutants) which enter the vehicle’s cabin space.

By eliminating most pollutant particles, it provides cleaner, healthier air for both driver and passengers. It also prevents deposits forming on the windscreen that can reduce the drivers visibility.

ABS recommends that your pollen filter is replaced regularly at every scheduled service. But, if the air in your vehicle is stale or if your windscreen is taking too long to de-mist, it’s probably a sign that the pollen filter is clogged and needs changing now.

Timing belts  (cam belts)

The timing belt is a crucial part of your cars engine that controls the timing of it’s moving components including the crankshaft, camshaft and valves. It is essential that this is not allowed to deteriorate.

Why get your timing belt checked?

  • To avoid expensive repair costs: if your timing belt breaks, your engines moving parts will collide, causing significant damage or possibly leading to a complete engine replacement.
  • To avoid breakdowns: even if the engine is not damaged, timing belt failure will lead to your vehicle breaking down.
  • Windows steam up when it is damp outside
  • To avoid potentially dangerous accidents: if your timing belt fails while driving, it could cause a serious accident, especially at high speeds.

The timing belt is made of a rubber-based compound, which means it can deteriorate over time due to general wear and tear.

It is essential that your timing belt is replaced in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.

ABS recommends that it is checked regularly, in case of contamination or signs of wear and tear, particularly if the vehicle has been used in arduous conditions such as low mileage stop start journeys.
