Brake Maintenance We recommend that you have your brakes inspected periodically and not just wait until you notice something is not quite right since that could be too late. Brake checks are an important part of your vehicle servicing requirement. If you tend to use your car mainly for short journeys for instance, it is likely that you will wear the brakes down quicker than if the car is used predominantly for longer trips. It is therefore important that you can spot the most common tell-tale signs of when your brake pads are in need of changing or repair:
If you can hear a grinding noise this usually suggests that the brake pads have reached the minimum thickness, so you should contact Best Drive Helensvale to have your car brake pads changed.
If you vehicle pulls to the left or right when braking then this normally means that there could be sticking on the brake discs or issues with the hydraulic elements of the brakes.
Free Brake Checks Does your brake warning light come on when you are driving? Does your vehicle steer or pull to one side when braking? Is your brake fluid low, or appear very dirty? Do you feel a pulsation or some sponginess in the brake pedal when it is depressed? Do you hear a grinding sound or a squealing sound when you apply the brake pedal?
These are the most common signs, any other sights, sounds or sensations in the brake system that seem out of the ordinary should also be taken into consideration. Most times, brake system problems will only escalate if disregarded.
Our free brake check facility gives a clear picture of the condition of your vehicle’s brakes, and whether you need new brake pads, brake discs or if the braking system itself is in need of repair. All elements are inspected against the manufacturer’s specification, which means Best Drive Helensvale will help you get your brakes back to the most efficient standards set.
