Brake Pads, Discs and Fluid

Replacing your brake pads

When?

Because it depends on their rate of wear, they should be checked at least every 12 months.

Why?

Brake pads are an important safety component, integral to the safe slowing and stopping of the vehicle. Over time the pads wear out and need to be replaced.

What's included?

Should your vehicle front pads need to be replaced, our manufacturer trained technicians will replace the pads using approved parts.

Replacing your brake discs

When?

The rate of wear depends on individual driving styles. We recommend that they should be checked at least every 12 months.

Why?

Brake discs are an important safety component, integral to the safe slowing and stopping of your vehicle. Over time the discs will wear down and may pass the minimum effective thickness and you will have less braking efficiency. It is not always necessary to replace both brake pads and discs at the same time; however our trained technicians will always advise on the correct repair required.

What's included?

Brake discs should only ever be replaced in pairs (e.g. fronts together or rears together)

Should your vehicle brake discs need replacing our manufacturer trained technicians will replace the discs using approved parts.

Brake fluid change

When?

Once your vehicle is three years old and then once every two years.

Why?

Brake fluid naturally absorbs atmospheric moisture. If the brake fluid is not replaced in the correct in the recommended schedule there is a risk that the fluid could boil due to excess moisture build up, which affects braking efficiency and ultimately leads to failure of the braking system.

What's included?

Our brake fluid change service includes checking for leaks, draining and bleeding the brake system of brake fluid, replacing it with new fluid and testing the system. Our manufacturer trained technicians will carry out the work using specialist equipment. Once completed the service book will receive an authorised stamp.
