We all know how important the bakes are on your vehicle and how much potential damage can arise from these parts being faulty. The brakes in your car play a vital part in ensuring your road safety. Your brakes are responsible for allowing your car to stop safely and when faults arise this can lead to mounting costs and in some cases, catastrophic damage to your car.

If your car is experiencing any early signs of brake problems be sure to bring it down to us here at The Kilburn Garage where we offer a FREE brake check. We will undertake the check while you wait in our warm reception area with a cup of tea. Our professional, friendly team will be able to determine any existing or potential problems that lie within the car using our state of the art machines, and if need be, put a quote together for any additional work needed. We will then be able to book you in on a day that suits you for any repair work. Call Emma on  01332 882727 for more information.

This vehicle hasn’t been serviced in three years causing all sorts of issues. The brake caliper sliders have seized making it extremely hard to strip and clean down, these brakes will not have been working effectively and the lack of maintenance incurs further labour costs. Keep on top of your servicing…preventative maintenance is key!

Common Signs Of Brake Wear:

1)  Grinding Noise – this usually suggests that the brake pads have reached the minimum thickness.

2)  If the vehicle pulls to the left or right – this normally indicates there could be a sticking on the brake disc or issue with the brake’s hydraulics.
