Brake Service & Repairs

Brakes represent one of the most important safety systems on a car. It is essential that you have your brakes checked and serviced regularly ensuring your safety as well as the safety of your passangers. It is very important that your brakes are in proper working order at all times to minimise the risk of having an accident.

Brake System Danger Signs

  • Your car’s brakes screech or squeal.
  • Your brake pedal is low, hard, soft or spongy.
  • Your steering wheel shudders under braking.
  • Your car loses grip under braking.
  • Your car pulls to the left or right under braking.
  • Your car takes longer to stop than normal.

Drum Brakes

When pressure is applied to the brake pedal, hydraulic fluid in the braking system forces the brake shoes outward until the linings come into contact with the inside of the drum and force it to stop.

Disc Brakes

These operate on a similar principle, except that the brakes consist of a stationary calliper, with a disc revolving with the wheel. When the pedal is pressed down, hydraulic pressure forces pads in the calliper to clamp on the disc. Most late model cars have disc brakes or a combination of front disc and rear drum brakes. Your front brake pads and rear linings wear every time you put your foot on the brake pedal.

Brake Fluid

Over time your vehicles brake fluid starts absorbing moisture witch then reduces its boiling point. When this happens, your vehicles braking efficiency deteriorates and can often couse sudden brake failure. Your brake fluid should be checked with every routine service. At Centennial Park Automotive we advice that you have your brake fluid flushed and replaced with brand new brake fluid every 2 years
