Brakes, the difference between an accident and your safe arrival.

Our most important goal with every brake service we provide, is earning your trust. We’ll provide a thorough inspection, and then go over in as much detail as needed to make sure you understand what and why we’re recommending any repairs.

The 8 symptoms of brake problems:

  • Brakes making a squealing, grating or clunking noise

  • Shuddering when braking, causes the steering wheel to vibrate or the brake pedal to pulsate up and down

  • Car pulling to one side or the other when braking

  • The brake pedal feels soft and spongy and or the brake warning light is on

  • Brake fluid level is down but you can’t see a leak

  • When sitting at idle speed with your foot on the brake pedal, the pedal slowly goes down to-wards the floor

  • The hand brake travels a long way before it works

  • Or possibly someone has told you your brakes need repairing and you want to make sure they do

Any one of the above symptoms means your brakes need checking by a specialist.

To check your brakes, we carry out a road test to listen and feel for any brake problems. We then put the vehicle up on a hoist and remove the wheels to check all of the brake system. There may not be any major problems with the brakes, some brake noises can be caused by dust, or the brakes may just need adjustment.

When your clutch fails, your vehicle stops. If you happen to be near an available tow truck, then it’s your very lucky day.

Most clutch failures cause endless hours of waiting at the side of the road and inconvenience and extra cost.

The 8 symptoms of Clutch problems:

  • The clutch pedal feel’s loose to press. (too much free play)

  • The clutch pedal is very hard to push down.

  • Sometimes the clutch pedal sticks down and has to be manually lifted back up.

  • When sitting at traffic lights with the clutch pedal depressed, a whining noise can be heard.

  • The gear stick is hard to move from gear to gear.

  • The gearbox crunches when changing gear.

  • When, in first gear, as the clutch pedal is engaged, the vehicle starts to shudder. (Clutch shudder)
