BRAKES

Braking systems are a vital part of your vehicle, and it is essential you get them inspected regularly by a professional to maintain good working order, prevent more costly repairs in the future, and more importantly, to ensure your safety. Our brake examination inspects the condition of all your brakes and its mechanisms.

 

BRAKE WEAR - WHAT SIGNS TO LOOK OUT FOR?

It’s not always noticeable that your car brake pads and discs need replacing but there are a few warning signs to keep an eye out for.

  • A grinding noise or squeaking - this usually suggests that the brake pads have reached the minimum thickness or in need of a service.
  • Pull to the left or right when braking - this normally indicates there could be a sticking on the brake disc usually caused by a faulty calliper.
  • Vibration/Juddering - this is often a symptom of a warped brake disc or can also indicate a fault with the hydraulics.

If you notice any of these signs, we advise you get them inspected as soon as possible. Here at Fix 'N' Fit we have fully trained staff who, equipped with extensive knowledge and up to date diagnostic tools, can find the problem and advise you about any potential work that needs to be carried out such as brake repair and replacement.
