Brake Safety Checks & Inspections

What is a brake safety inspection?

If there’s one part of your vehicle that needs to function correctly, it’s your brakes. Your brakes allow your vehicle to stop when it needs to, allowing you to stay safe while driving. A failing brake system can increase the amount of time it takes for your vehicle to stop.

A brake safety inspection allows our mechanics to look over the various components in your braking system. If there are any problems, you will be notified. Our mechanics can then give you quality advice on how the problems can be fixed.

 

What do we check?

We aim to make our brake safety inspections as comprehensive as possible, checking things such as:

  • Brake fluid levels
  • Brake fluid reservoir/master cylinder
  • Status of brake discs/rotors
  • Status of brake pads
  • Status of brake lines
  • Status of brake shoes and drums (on drum braking systems)
  • ABS system with electronic scan tool

If your vehicle is displaying warning lights on the dash, we can use our advanced scan tools to determine the cause of the warning.

 

When to get a brake safety inspection?

When it comes to brakes, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. If you have any worries about your braking system, we suggest that you bring your car in for an inspection.

Common signs of failing brake components include:

  • Leaking of brake fluid (thin, clear liquid) around the engine or tyres.
  • Grinding or squeaking noises while braking.
  • Vibration coming from brake pedal.
  • Reduced brake effectiveness.
