Volkswagen Braking System

We’ll make sure your car is equipped for effective stopping and perfect handling. And we’ll keep a grip on costs.

Why do my brake pads and discs need to be changed?

When you brake, the brake discs that rotate with the wheels are gripped by brake pads, slowing the car down. Both discs and pads can become worn and corroded, so it's vital they are checked regularly for your safety.

Benefits of having them changed

Peace of mind, knowing your brakes are in good working order to keep you (and other road users) safe

What happens if they are not changed?

If your brakes aren't maintained regularly you won't be able to brake as efficiently. As well as reduced stopping power, worn or corroded brake parts can make your car vibrate and become really noisy.

What do we do?

We remove the wheels to visually check all the brake parts. We also measure the brake pad wear level. If the pads or discs are worn, corroded or warped we will let you know so we can arrange to replace them.

How often do they need to be checked?

At least once a year.
