Today’s vehicle braking systems involve many different components working together to help you to stop and manoeuvre your vehicle in a controlled manner. The key components of your vehicle braking system include a master cylinder, servo, brake callipers, brake fluid and cylinders, disks, drums, pads and shoes. All the components are linked by a series of brake hoses and brake pipes containing brake fluid, so when you press your brake pedal the vehicle slows down and stops. The rate at which your brakes reduce the vehicle speed is determined by the amount and duration of foot pressure is applied to your brake pedal, and of course the overall condition of your braking system. We can repair and maintain all brakes for any vehicle, at super prices using only the best for your vehicle. For example we only use O.E. (original equipment) or Genuine brake parts to guarantee to you longer brake life, better brake feel, extremely low brake dust (this helps cleaning your wheels and takes longer for them to get dirty), better braking and more… We use Names such as Pagid, Textar, ATE, Jurid, TSW, Brembo and Genuine.
Regular brake checks are an important part of any vehicle preventative maintenance plan. Brake checks can identify a problem before it begins to impact on your braking efficiency, thus providing an opportunity to restore the effectiveness of your vehicle’s braking system to its intended operating performance.
Whilst regular servicing of your vehicle will include checking the boiling point of your brake fluid, vehicle manufacturers recommend that you change your brake fluid at least every two years if not sooner (check your vehicle handbook for details). Changing brake fluid when recommended prevents brake failure and maintains the boiling point at a safe level.
As best practice for drivers whose annual mileage is considered average or high (around 8,000 miles per year or more), we recommend that your vehicle’s braking system is checked at least twice a year.
