The brake system
Your braking system is a complex system of different components working together to help you stop and move your car in a controlled manner. The system is made up of brake pads, discs, drums, cylinders, callipers and brake fluid that are linked to slow down or stop your vehicle. You constantly use your brakes when driving your car, and they can receive constant wear and tear which can causing damage to any part within the system. That’s why it’s important to regularly maintain each part of your brakes in order to make sure that your safety always remains in-tact.
How often should I get my brakes checked out?
Whilst your brakes are checking within our annual service and MOT at Glen Fern Garages, they can sometimes wear out before the year is up. Thus, resulting in breakdown or accidents which can cause damage to you and your car. We recommend that within 8,000-10,000 miles that you get your brakes looked at, at least twice within this period. As an essential component of your vehicle and maintaining your safety, it’s integral that you get your brakes checked out at the first sign of damage. Juddering, Squealing, or even slight changes in how fast your vehicle comes to a halt can indicate a problem with your brakes.
Your brake repairs
At Glen Fern Garages, our workshop and team are fully equipped to provide you with brake inspections and advice before conducting any work to walk you through what might need to be repaired. We’ll visually inspect your brakes and the components, and if we think there might be something serious wrong we’ll test the system on and off the road. If you need repairs and are happy for us to go ahead, we’ll do the necessary work in-house, topping up your brake fluid if it needs it as well.
Our brake specialists are fully trained and experience to provide all repairs to your cars brake system in a timely and cost effective manner. They’ll check each component carefully to identify any issues and recommend the relevant repairs to help you stay safe on the road.
