Our expert insights into free brakes check

Our expert insights into free brakes check

What is included in a car brake check?

Each key brake component will be inspected by our highly experienced mechanics. They will visually check the thickness of your brake pads, and the condition of your calipers and brake discs. Depending on the condition of these parts they can then advise whether or not they think a replacement is needed.

How do I know if my brakes need replacing?

Some common signs that your brakes may need replacing are:

  • You hear unusual noises, such as squeaking or grinding, when braking
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side when braking
  • You feel vibrations or shudders when braking
  • Your brakes feel hard or spongy when applying pressure
  • There is additional slack in the handbrake or difficulty removing handbrake
  • The brake warning light is illuminated
