Similarly if your brakes are more effective on one side than they are on the other, this can then mean that when you try and brake or slow down, you will not do so as quickly on one side as the other. This can then mean that you swerve left or right, or even cause the car to spin.
Fortunately repairing various brake parts and replacing them when necessary is relatively easy, and it is also possible to notice fairly easily when this becomes necessary. If you start braking your car and the car is becoming less responsive than it was for instance and doesn't slow down as quickly, then this is a ... [More]
There are many important things to consider when maintaining our cars, but few things are more important than your brake parts. Your brakes are very important for many reasons and are absolutely crucial to our safety. If you do not have functioning brake parts then this will mean that you are able to drive and to build up speed, but not able to slow down – or even more crucially – stop when necessary. At the same time, even if your brake parts were operational, but simply not as effective as they should be, then this would mean that you would mean that all your reactions were slowe... [More]
The brake drums are a very important part of your braking system, and you have to be extremely careful so as to not damage them during regular usage.

To avoid such a situation, you have to remember to use your brakes very carefully, without putting too much pressure on them, or putting them in a situation where they could get damaged.

One difficulty in maintaining your headlights is in telling when the bulbs have gone. Of course as we do not use the lights in the day as a rule, this can mean that we are unlikely to notice them not working right away. This can then mean that we don't notice the problem until we are on the motorway and it starts turning dark – at which point it may not be possible to quickly find replacement car parts.
As such you should test your car headlights from time to time. To do this try parking your car in front of wall and turning the headlights on. You should be able to notice both lights ag... [More]
There are 'cats' eyes' inlaid into the road that are designed in order to reflect back light from car headlights so that the drivers can see the outline of the road even in fog. At the same time signs are designed in order to be reflective so that they are easily visible and readable when you shine your car headlights at them.
Thus it is crucial to ensure that your car headlights are always working as well as possible. Otherwise this can cause you to be unable to drive in the dark and might put you and other drivers and pedestrians at danger.
One thing to check is that the bulbs in your head... [More]
Headlights on your car are very important and possibly under-recognised parts of your vehicle. While they are not at all crucial to the actual running and operation of a car, they are however highly vital to the safety of the driver and for other vehicles on the road – and while they are only small and cheap to replace when compared to other car parts, if they were to cease function you would nevertheless be unable to use to vehicle at all.
Car headlights serve several purposes. The first is that they allow you to see the road clearly ahead of you which means that you can drive in low l... [More]
