Collection (unfreeze and jump start!) from Berkhamsted
At Car Magic we collect and deliver vehicles if required to get you back on the road as quickly as possible. For this Volkswagen Polo we had to do a little more than that. On collection from Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire we had to first unfreeze the brake calipers. Then we had to jump start the car which had been stationary for a few weeks.
As car drivers you will know that brake calipers are essential brake parts. If they become dirty or rusty, the caliper can’t fully retract the brake pad from the rotor. This results in friction even when the brake pedal isn’t being pushed. When brakes are not used for a little while, as in the case of this Polo, the brake calipers can become frozen or even warped. If this happens the calipers won’t allow any movement without the use of a special tool. Once we’d managed to get some movement in the calipers we could at least move the car. However, having been left stationary the Volkswagen Polo was in need a jump start. No problem for the team though, they were soon on the road to our workshop just outside Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.
The Polo was booked in for us to supply a new front bumper cover, paint and fit a new front bumper. That was all straightforward and the type of repair we do everyday here at Car Magic. We also had to diagnose an issue with the power steering and resolve the problems with the brake calipers in order to return to the owner in Berkhamsted.
