The safety of you and your passengers revolves around three main factors, Tyres, Suspension & Brakes. All equally important for obvious reasons.
Don’t wait for your brakes to grind, squeal, vibrate or pull to one side before taking action. Give us a call for a brake safety check. We will assess your brake system, & run through any repairs or maintenance required.
PADS & ROTORS
There are a number of components in a brake system that need regular checking. The most obvious are the brake pads, or in the case of brake drum assemblies the brake shoes.
Next are the rotors, or drums. Not only do the rotors wear, they can also lose their shape. Rotors can be machined to save money provided we maintain the correct tolerances.
Other brake components are the Wheel Cylinders, Master Cylinder, Brake Hoses and Brake Calipers. Not only can we check these parts we can diagnose problem components and repair or replace as necessary. Finally there’s the brake fluid which should be flushed and replaced every 2 years for optimum braking performance.
Regular safety checks and professional maintenance of your brake system are essential.
