  • How do I know if I need new wiper blades?

    How do I know if I need new wiper blades? In this rainy season you really need to make sure that you are safe while driving. Changing you wiper blades is quick, easy and affordable! #SmokeBrake Back and forth, back and forth — no wonder windshield wipers get worn. You can see the loss in clear vision after about 6 months or so. If you’re struggling to see in the rain, it’s past time to get new ones. This is a fast, easy, low-cost upgrade that will seriously improve your safety, so no excuses for waiting. Here are some other signs that new wiper blades are in order: Streaking or hazing on the windshield when it rains. A chattering sound when your wipers are on. This noise means they’re not swiping smoothly, but popping up and down as they go. The blades are pulling away from the windshield at higher speeds, instead of sitting snugly against the windshield. The rubber has split into sections or pulled away from the wiper arm. This will cause a slapping sound when you turn on the windshield wipers. The rubber edge looks worn or torn in places, or the metal arm is bent or cracked. You can be in and out of Randburg Midas with a brand new set of wiper blades in 10 minutes!

  • The dangers of aquaplaning

    The dangers of aquaplaning can be avoided with a simple regular check. Keep save and arrive alive #SmokeBrake Aquaplaning or hydroplaning by the tires of a road vehicle occurs when a layer of water builds between the wheels of the vehicle and the road surface, leading to a loss of traction that prevents the vehicle from responding to control inputs. If it occurs to all wheels simultaneously, the vehicle becomes, in effect, an uncontrolled sled.

  • Avoid power steering failure

    If your car is starting to show early warning signs of power steering failure, you need to have it checked before it feels like you are driving a tank #SmokeBrake Almost all cars now have power steering systems to make it easier for drivers to steer the car. However, power steering failure is risky because the motorist can miscalculate the execution of a turn or lose control of the car and have an accident. Power steering failure can usually be avoided because it often happens gradually with enough warning signs before completely failing although a sudden failure is also possible. Here are some of the warning signs of a failing power steering system: Whining, shrieking or moaning sound as you turn the steering wheel are indicators of low steering fluid level. A freely turning steering wheel that requires a major effort to turn the car. Power steering fluid leaks if you see a pink, amber or red fluid on the ground under your car which has been parked for hours. If you can’t easily distinguish the color, put a white sheet under your parked car and check after several hours. If your car is showing any of these early warning signs, Randburg Midas should be your first stop. For whatever reason if we are not able to help, we will put you in the right direction to a specialist who can help.
