Brakes Services

Introduction

The job of the braking system is to slow your car down, and it is an essential safety feature of the vehicle. Your car's brakes use friction to convert the kinetic energy of your wheel into heat and a small amount of noise. When the brake pedal of a modern vehicle with hydraulic brakes is pushed, the brake fluid creates hydraulic pressure which ultimately pushes the brake pad against the brake disc which slows the wheel down.

What can go wrong with your car's braking system?

If your brake pads, disks and fluid aren't maintained you could potentially lose control of your vehicle when attempting to slow down or stop in an emergency. Additionally, moisture in the brake fluid coupled with hard braking can lead to vapor lock, and a complete brake failure. Things to look out for include;

  • Needing to press on the brake pedal harder than normal to slow the car
  • The car pulling to one side when braking
  • The brakes locking when braking
  • The brakes feel spongy when you press the pedal
  • The car vibrates when braking
  • the break warning light coming on.

What can you do?

Check your brake fluid weekly and if you experience any of the points above it is imperative that you take your vehicle to your nearest RRG service centre where an experienced mechanic will check your brakes for you. It is also imperative that the correct specification brakes are fitted when you need to replace them. Both sets of brake pads on the same axle should be replaced at the same time to avoid unequal braking.
