Brakes are one of the most important parts in your car. There are 3 main components in the car braking system:

  • Brake Pads
  • Brake Disks
  • Brake Fluid

Brake Pads & Disks

Brake pads are very important and their replacement is rather cheap. However, if you don’t change them, it will result in damaging the brake disk and this is a very time consuming repair.

Brake Fluid

Brake fluid transfers the pressure exerted on the pedal directly to the brake pads. It is also responsible to transfer the heat produced under braking . Liquids are generally incompressible while gases are generally more compressible.  If there is not enough brake fluid for example due to spillage your car will not be able to stop.

Car manufactures usually recommend changing brake fluid at maximum once every 2 years.

Full brake fitting service is available and again this can be done while you wait, but  we are happy for you to take a courtesy vehicle away while we carry out the work. We often do brakes, discs, calipers and brake fluid changes, so please give us a call for a quote or pop in and see us.
