Get the Power and Peace of Mind of Brake Repairs

Brakes are the single most important safety feature in your car. It’s common knowledge, but sometimes we can let things slip. To help protect the safety of yourself and everyone around you, invest in regular brake servicing.

Warning Signs for Your Brakes

There is a seven-point list of things to look out for that let you know it may be time for brake repairs.

  • Loss of grip when braking

  • The feeling of your car pulling left or right when braking

  • A sloppy, soft or low brake pedal

  • Shuddering through your steering wheel when braking

  • Squeals, screeches and high-pitched noises when braking

  • Your brake warning light flashes

  • Your car takes longer to stop than normal

How Brakes Work

There’s a lot you don’t see when you step on the brakes. Pressing the brake pedal sends out fluid that activate your braking system. This forces the brake pad onto the disc rotor, causing friction and bringing your car to a stop. The brake pads of your car are fitted to the brake calliper. This is the part of the car that applies and releases the brake pads from the disc rotor.

Over time, friction wears down the brake pads, and they begin to lose their stopping power and cause damage to your brake pistons. This is why brake pads will need replacing pretty regularly.

Brake Callipers

Your brake callipers house one or more pistons depending on the model of your brakes. These pistons push or release when the brake pedal is operated. Specifically designed rubber components ensure that hydraulic brake fluid does not leak or allow dirt into the system. This is another element to keep an eye on when maintaining your brakes.

Even if there’s nothing wrong with your brakes, it’s still worth getting them checked regularly. Drop into your local Tyrepower for a brake inspection and servicing by an expert. Call 13 21 91 from anywhere in Australia to book a service with your local independent expert.
