Car Brake Repair

Regular brake checks are an important part of vehicle maintenance. Well-maintained brakes are essential for both your vehicle and your safety. We perform brake checks on all services as standard. Even vehicles with brake pad monitoring systems can still fail to work efficiently. Maintaining the health of your brakes is essential, therefore we recommend having them checked regularly, or if something doesn’t feel right, come and see us as soon as possible!

Parts will never be replaced without your permission to ensure you don’t have any unexpected costs, and we are happy to show you the old, worn or damaged parts, to ensure full transparency.

Brake Fluid Check

We also perform brake fluid checks on every service. Brake fluid is essential, although often neglected, making regular checks vital. We advise you to change your brake fluid every 2 years, as it can absorb water over time, affecting your brakes’ ability to perform as they should. With this brake fluid check, we can advise you on the condition of your brake fluid, and, if necessary, offer to replace it at a small additional cost.

Frequently asked questions about brakes

These are some of the most commonly asked questions that we hear about brake care. If you have any questions, contact us and a member of our team will be happy to help with your enquiry.

We advise you to change your brake fluid every 2 years as it can absorb water over time, affecting your brakes’ ability to perform as they should.

Brake pads need to be replaced every 25,000-70,000 miles, depending on your driving habits, the make and model of your car, and many other factors. The best service schedule can usually be found in your car owner’s manual.

Squeaking or squealing noise coming from your brakes is a good indicator that your brakes need replacing, especially if the noise is persistent. 

Your car may also have an indicator light that switches on.

You may also begin to hear a deep grinding metal sound, another good indicator your brakes need replacing. 

Another indicator that your brakes need replacing is when you feel a vibrating brake pedal.
