The car starts and the car stops. As drivers, we need both of these features as much as we need to breathe in and out. If you've ever been in a vehicle that did not stop, you know the sheer terror that brake failure can cause. Whether your vehicle is equipped with disc or drum brakes, you expect them to work when you apply the brake pedal.
Brakes can't talk - or can they? If you're not distracted with chatter or music, you might hear your brakes trying to tell you when something's wrong. Brakes have their own language; they squeal, click, squeak and grind. You need to listen carefully to their noises rather than ignore them and hope the sounds will magically disappear.
The easiest way you can avoid brake failure is by maintaining the vehicle regularly and being attentive to any changes in performance. Because a vehicle's brake system involves many components along the entire length of the vehicle, any number of things can go wrong calipers, drums and brake pads etc.
Inspect brake pads, discs and shoes annually and replace them if they are worn. Change the brake fluid every 48,000 miles or every four years which ever comes sooner, also seek advice if you experience any of the following symptoms.
The antilock brake system [ABS] light comes on.
When accelerating, you feel a lot of drag.
The brake pedal pulses when you brake. You hear clicking, grinding, or squeaking when you apply the brake.
The car grabs, or pulls to one side
At My Motoring Centres we carry out a free full brake check to investigate any braking problems you may have, once all the diagnostics are carried out, one of our technicians can also show you any issues with the brakes.
Prices on brakes vary on all makes and models, so once the fault is diagnosed we can give you a quote. No work will be carried out before speaking to you, and getting the go ahead first.
Prices on all makes and models do vary so please contact us for a FREE QUOTATION
