Brakes are crucial to your safety, your passengers and other road users.

When do my Brakes need replacing?

It all depends upon your driving style and what you primarily use your vehicle for.
For example; a set of new brake pads could last up to 60,000 miles or more, when your vehicle is primarily driven on a motorway. However the brakes on the same vehicle primarily driving in built up areas or a city, may only last 25,000 miles; due to increased use of the brakes due to traffic.
Usually front brakes wear out faster than rear brakes. Especially on a vehicle with front wheel drive.

How do Brakes and Brake Fluid work?

Manufacturers have consistently put more Braking power into their vehicles. Making our roads safer and giving our vehicles greater manoeuvrability. So maintaining an effective Braking system is a top priority for any motorist.

Today’s Braking systems rely upon numerous components. All working together to help you stop quicker and manoeuvre your vehicle with ease and accuracy.

Curcial Brake components, include:

  • Master Cylinder.
  • Servo.
  • Brake Callipers.
  • Brake Fluid.
  • Brake Cylinders.
  • Brake Disks.
  • Brake Drums.
  • Brake Pads.
  • Brake Shoes.
Regular Brake checks and maintenance helps ensure all these components are continually working in their optimal condition. Brake checks can help identify problems before they occur.
