•Slower braking times
•Brake pedal feels spongy or soft
•Unusual odor after pressing the brake
•A warning light on your dashboard
•Pulsating when the brakes are applied
•A grinding or squealing noise when you use the brake

Diagnosing Problems with Your Braking System
Before any repair works are undertaken, our certified technicians will carry out a full diagnostic assessment. This will ensure we have a comprehensive view of the braking system and have identified all possible issues. We understand that a brake repair or engine fault can be an unexpected expenditure, so we’ll always discuss any repair options with you before we get to work.
Once the problem has been identified and we’ve been through the available repair options with you, we’ll ensure your brake repair is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and that any replacement parts are suitable for your vehicle.
Brake Maintenance and Servicing
When your brakes are showing signs of wear and tear, we’ll ensure brake repairs are carried out quickly so you can get back on the road. However, regular brake maintenance and servicing can help to minimize the risk of problems occurring and keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition.
A brake service is usually recommended at least once a year or every 12,000 miles since you last had a brake check. We’ll assess your braking system, diagnose any issues and warn you about any work which may need to be carried out in the future. In addition to this, a brake service is a great time to have your brake system flushed or your ABS system inspected.
