Brakes

Brakes are with out a doubt the most important part of your car and should be maintained by professionals, we offer a complete brake check free of charge so there is no excuse for driving around with unsafe brakes. Don’t risk it pop in and one of our helpful technicians will be happy to help.

Brakes are a wear and tear item and we would recommend you get then inspected at least once to twice a year.

It is a common misconception that if a car passes it’s MOT then the brakes must be in good order. During an mot you are not aloud to remove a hubcap, wheel or brake drum, which can make it very difficult to see the condition of the front brakes through the wheel. Also if your car has rear drums it’s impossible to see the condition of the rear brakes.

During our brake cheek we check for vibrations, remove all wheels and drums if fitted. A close inspection allows our technicians to see all the important components and check for deterioration. We also have all the latest diagnostic equipment so dealing with electronic brakes and wear sensors is no problem. Additionally we have all of the correct tools for brake fluid changes and bleeding, which ensures that you get a 100% firm and responsive pedal.

You should receive a detailed inspection with your service, which are part of the dealership recommendations for each service interval and thats what we go by.

    One of the key parts of an exhaust is the silencer. This represses the sound produced by the engine through the exhaust. If the exhaust becomes corroded or there is a hole in the silencer the sounds are no longer muffled and the exhaust will become very noisy. This could also cause carbon monoxide to leak up into the vehicle which can be very dangerous.

  • How do I know if my brakes need attention

    If you have a brake warning light or symbol illuminated you should book in to be diagnosed asap. Other signs include a grinding noise when you apply your brakes which may indicate that the pads are excessively worn. If the car pulls to the left or the right, it probably means your brakes need some attention . also if you have a spongy brake pedal or a continuous pulsing, this may indicate a brake fluid leak.
