The brakes are probably the most important component of your car. When you press the brake pedal, brake fluid is forced down to the brake calipers in each wheel, causing the brake pads to “squeeze” against the brake discs. This friction ensures that you and your passengers can stop safely in case of an emergency, or just in everyday driving conditions.
How do I know if I might need to replace my brakes?
Should you become concerned about your vehicle brakes and braking system in anyway simply call us and we will inspect your brake system and advise you FREE OF CHARGE.
Because of the high amount of wear and tear they undergo, both your brake pads and your brake shoes will eventually wear out and need replacing. We recommend that your braking system is routinely checked at least twice a year.
It’s a false economy to keep driving with substandard brakes as you’ll eventually do damage to other components, which could lead to costly repairs and even more importantly brake failure.
Regular brake checks are an important part of any vehicle preventative maintenance plan. Brake checks can identify a problem before it begins to impact your braking efficiency, thus providing an opportunity to restore the effectiveness of your vehicles braking system to its intended operating performance. The effects of a sudden brake failure can be devastating & disastrous; your vehicle will also fail its NCT test if the brake efficiency is below specification.
