Car Brake Servicing
Brake Pads & Brake Shoes
Brake pads and brake shoes require replacement from time to time. Every time that you slow down they wear down just a little bit. Usually you will hear a strange sound if they are worn down. When they are very badly worn this will turn into a grinding sound. Get to a garage ASAP for brake repairs or servicing.
Your car or van should be equipped with a sensor that transmits an alert when your brake pads are worn out and need to be changed. As soon as you see or hear a brake warning you should get to Discount MOT Services for a free safety check. The longer you leave it the more likelihood of a larger repair bill. For example if the brake pads wear down below a certain point they begin to damage the disc that they grip to slow you down.
Most vehicles us pipes with brake fluid in them to activate the braking system. If this fluid leaks out you will eventually lose the ability to stop your vehicle. Also there are various seals that keep the fluid in the system. These need servicing and replacing from time to time. The brake fluid also needs to be replaced at the appropriate service intervals. If you see any signs of fluid leaking from the wheels get to Discount MOT Services brake repairs and servicing garage at Fontwell, Arundel.
TIP – If you do lose all your brake fluid and cannot stop you can also use the handbrake. Your handbrake is certainly designed to stop your car in an emergency. Of course this means that you should keep your handbrake in good condition. Electronic hand brakes require specialist equipment. We have all the tools and expertise to service electronic hand brakes at our brake repairs and servicing unit.
Anti lock braking systems (ABS)
Many modern vehicles have a system that allows you to brake very hard without locking up the wheels. Once the wheels are no longer turning when you are still in motion they cease to be efficient at slowing you down or steering. Anti lock brakes are therefore an important part of vehicle safety and are included in our brake servicing.
