Do my brake discs really need changing?
Advising your discs need changing is something we will not take lightly. We will only do this if we feel that they will affect your braking for the worse. This may include (and not be limited to) scoring, serious corrosion, or warping. Most of the time you will get through with a pad change. If you require, we will show you your discs on or off the vehicle.
What is a DMF and what does it do?
The dual mass flywheel (DMF) transmits the engine torque to the clutch pressure plate and the clutch disc. Its primary purpose is to isolate the torsional vibrations generated in the engine and preventing them from passing into the drive-line (quote from Sachs UK).
What is a DPF and what does it do?
A diesel particulate filter (DPF) captures and stores exhaust soot (some refer to them as soot traps) in order to reduce emissions from diesel cars. DPFs only have a finite capacity, so this trapped soot periodically has to be emptied or 'burned off' to regenerate the DPF. This regeneration process cleanly burns off the excess soot deposited in the filter, reducing the harmful exhaust emission and helps to prevent the tell-tale black smoke you used to see from diesel vehicles, particularly when accelerating.
