STEERING SPECIALISTS FOR 40 YEARS
EXPERTS IN ALL TYPES OF POWER STEERING SYSTEMS
Once thought of as a luxury, PAS (or power assisted steering) is now standard in almost all vehicles. This hydraulic system helps you to steer your car with ease. If you have ever driven a car with no power steering you will most certainly notice the difference when you then drive a car that does have power steering. Many people describe it as being night and day!
Primarily there are two types of power steering systems that Glasgow Power Steering deals with, the more common rack and pinion and the lesser used recirculating ball system. Although not as widespread as it once was, the recirculating ball is still used in some modern vans and trucks.
A rack and pinion power steering system is made up of two main components: the rack and pinion itself and a power steering pump. Situated behind the wheels of the vehicle, the rack and pinion is generally a piece of metal tubing that is roughly three inches in diameter and three feet in length. Inside the tube, there is a flat piece of metal that has been cut to include teeth on its top. In the centre of the rack and pinion is a round seal that seals either side of the rack, one at a time.
While new types of power steering systems have been created, the centre of most systems is the pump, complimented by a belt that is powered by the vehicle’s engine. Even the older recirculating ball system borrows the pump’s concept of moving high-pressure fluid back and forth. Due to the fact that the hoses moving the fluid are susceptible to developing leaks, drivers are encouraged to have them inspected by an auto mechanic during every oil change.
Whatever type of power steering system your vehicle has, the mechanics at Glasgow Power Steering will be able to diagnose and fix all problems quickly and at a great price.
"Bought a reconditioned steering rack from these guys and so far so good, comes with 2-year unlimited mile warranty. A lot cheaper than new which are hard to get for my Suzuki Swift ATM. Should've just got it fitted here as that's their main area of expertise. They take £50 deposit but you get it back once you take back your old rack no hassle as long as you have receipt.
Will use this company again if the need arises. Owner guy is a nice chap"
