Car Brakes

I think there’s something wrong with my brakes, or I would like someone to check that they are working ok. Can you help me?

Yes we can! Our three levels of brake inspection, service and repair are designed to meet the needs of all cars, whatever their condition…

Brake Inspection – This is a general check of your car’s braking system to make sure there are no obvious issues or concerns. We also use a brake inspection to help pinpoint any issues or concerns you might have with your vehicle’s brakes. This would include a visual check of the mechanical braking components, brake fluid level and test, brake hoses and pipes and a test drive to check operation.

Brake Service – This is a comprehensive braking system service. As well as all of the items included on an brake inspection, a brake service includes a brake strip, clean and grease, adjusting the handbrake if required, brake drum removal, clean-up and cylinder check (if applicable) handbrake cable operation check and a brake fluid change. A brake service is particularly helpful if you have a new vehicle and would like peace of mind that your vehicle’s brakes are ok.

Brake Repairs – If your vehicle requires brake repairs such as replacement brake discs and pads for example, we will explain the process to you and provide you with an estimate prior to carrying out works.

What should I bring with me?

There are a few things that are handy to bring with you on the day, to make sure your we can help you as quickly and effectively as possible…

Locking Wheel Nut Key – Our technicians will need to remove your wheels to inspect the condition of your braking system and carry out any necessary repairs. This will involve removing your vehicle’s wheels. Please bring your locking nuts with you, so that our team can carry out these out without delay.

A List of any Issues or Concerns – Our technicians will inspect your car’s braking system thoroughly. However if you have any concerns such as unusual noises or performance issues, please let us know so that they can find the cause for you quickly and help explain what is required to remedy them.
