How do front brake discs work?

The brake disc is a metal plate mounted on the wheel hub that is clamped between **2 brake pads **when braking is applied; this causes friction and slows the vehicle down.

How often should brake discs need replacing?

As a rough guide, your brake discs should last between 50k and 70k miles, but there are many variables that could affect this, including driver behaviour, the weight you carry and the speed you travel.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

Incorrect brake function, damaged or excessively worn discs or pads are considered unsafe for your vehicle performance and will cause your car to fail its MOT. Nearly 20% of MOT failures are caused by faulty brakes.

What happens when we replace your front brake discs?

  • Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will inspect the brake system for signs of wear, damage and breakage.
  • They will establish which brake discs need to be replaced and fit new ones as necessary.
  • You will be advised if any of the brake pads need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle.
  • Once the brake discs have been replaced, our mechanics will test them thoroughly to ensure the correct operation of the new parts, and make any adjustments required for premium performance.

What causes brake discs to stop working correctly?

Brake discs wear out over time from continual use. The friction applied by the brake pads, and the intense heat generated, will eventually deform the disc, causing it to become thinner and less effective when performing its job.

Extended use can also cause brake discs to crack, rendering them ineffective. Scars and rust on the disc can be caused by debris thrown from the road and poor weather conditions; this is also effective in reducing the operation of your brake discs.

Symptoms of malfunctioning brakes discs

Braking causes unusual noises

Loud screeching or grinding noises from your brakes is an indication that there is a problem with either your brake discs or pads.

When your car pulls to one side under braking

If only one brake is working correctly, it can cause your car to pull in the direction of the functioning brake.

The car vibrates under braking

Your brake pads or discs could be warped if the pedal vibrates when you press down on it.

The front brake disc shows signs of damage

Look through the wheel for a visual check—if the disc’s surface isn’t smooth, or it displays cracks, grooves, spots or a blue colourisation, then the disc is quite likely damaged.

Your brake warning light on the dashboard is illuminated

If any of your dashboard warning lights are illuminated, the sensor that detects problems or worn out parts and components has identified an issue and activated the system.

Skoda

Skoda Auto is a Czech automobile manufacturer originally founded in 1895 as Laurin & Klement. In 1925 Laurin & Klement was acquired by the industrial conglomerate Skoda Works, which itself became state-owned in 1948.

In 2000 Skoda became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.

How popular is Skoda in the United Kingdom?

Skoda’s growing success has been down to strong support from its parent VW Group and its credibility as a mainstream supplier of great value sensible cars.

The number of Skoda cars on the road in the UK has grown consistently over the past 20 years to over 740k and rising.

Great value, solid, sensible motoring

With models so closely related to those of Volkswagen, Audi and Seat, it’s no surprise that the mechanics behind Skoda’s straightforward range of practical town and city cars has proven so reliable and increased in popularity over time.

They deliver models from city car to saloon, and as you’d expect in today’s market, there’s a couple of SUV models thrown in to complete the set.

Skoda supply an abundance of choice and trim for differing budgets

There are a plethora of trim levels available for every model—and that’s not forgetting Skoda’s entry into the electric car market too.

The Skoda Citigoe iV

Skoda’s 4-seater city car electric model is powered exclusively by a 36.8kWh lithium-ion battery allowing for a range of 265km. With zero emissions and compact dimensions, the Cititgoe iV is the ideal city car, taking into account its practical interior storage, nimble footprint and ecological performance.

Skoda’s reliability and reputation

Skoda ranked 7th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018.

Given that most of the marques to make the top 10 were Japanese or Asian manufacturers, it’s quite an achievement for this budget brand to attain such a high rank and efficiency score—only 2.1% behind the number one spot (Suzuki: 97.7% efficient).
