Brake Checks and Servicing

Have you ever heard a high-pitched screeching sound when you applied your brakes? That's a small metal shim called an indicator, which is giving you an audible warning that you need to replace your brake pads. If you hear it regularly, give us a call and our trained technicians can check them out for you.

Brake Pad replacement is far more cost effective at the time of Servicing your vehicle if they need it, rather than leaving it to the point of also damaging the brake discs, meaning they need replacing too.

There are two ways to check for brake wear on disc brakes. By looking and by listening. First, you can check for wear by looking at your brake pads through the spaces between the wheel's spokes if possible. The outside pad will be pressed against the metal brake disc. Generally, there should be at least 1/4 inch (6mm) of pad. If you see less than 1/4 inch of pad, you may want to have your brake pads inspected or replaced. If you’re not sure what to look for, swing by and let us take a look for you
