General processes involved in a brake service
The brake mechanic team here at Peninsula Auto Clinic will properly work to fix any issues the car’s brakes have. We will inspect each part of the brake system and test to identify any problems. Servicing brakes is really important to limit the chances of damaging and repairs that might happen in the future. Moreover, the service will guarantee that if a concern is identified, that this issue is treated sooner rather than later/ too late.
When inspecting the brakes, our brake specialist crew will check all systems and parts involved. We will also use the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure that we know exactly how the brake system operates. Moreso, if our customers have suspected anything, for example hearing squeaks, grinds or other unknown noises, it helps us to quickly identify the source and tackle it correctly.
Disc Brake Service
We will remove the pads and calipers to then clean and lubricate both the guide pins and caliper brackets. This is to ensure that the possibility of the parts seizing or sticking to not happen. If rust is present, therefore, we will also clean the brake discs to prevent squeaking and rust damage.
Rear Drum Service
Simply cleaning and lubricating the parking brake parts, lubricating parts and other areas in the rear drum system. Adjustments and removing dust may also occur in the service.
Brake Pad Replacement
Replacing brakes will occur after the car has been driven per 25,000km. Also, if the brakes have been pulsating, when braking the car moves to one side or if the brakes go down further this can also indicate the need for service. This type of servicing ensures that the brakes will stop safely and properly.
Brake Fluid Replacement
The brake fluid is what helps the brakes function and is really important that it is replaced each 12-36 months. We will replace the current fluid with fresh and clean fluids to ensure that the system is running well.
