Brakes: Car Brake Specialist

Why are your brakes important?

Brakes are the most important safety feature in your car. One of the easiest ways to tell if they’re working properly is to check your brake warning light. If it’s on, they need attention.

That’s simple enough. But what about the less-obvious warning signs? If you experience any of these signs, you should have your brakes checked by a specialist:

• Your car loses grip when braking

• Your car pulls to the left or right when braking

• Your brake pedal is low, hard, soft or spongy

• Your steering wheel shudders when you brake

• Your brakes screech or squeal

• Your car takes longer to stop than normal

Why are your disc brake calipers important?

When you apply pressure to your brake pedal, this is what happens: the pressure forces brake fluid to engage a series of mechanisms that push the brake pad onto the disc rotor (which is attached to the wheel assembly) bringing your car to a stop. The brake pad is mounted to a brake caliper, which is the part that applies and releases the brake pads from the disc rotor.

The caliper comprises a housing, inside which is a piston that moves back and forth when you apply and releases the brakes. Rubber parts inside the caliper ensure that hydraulic fluid does not leak from it.

If your vehicle’s calipers have not been overhauled for some time, we may recommend this service when replacing brake pads across Hervey Bay. We will always explain the reason why.

Although you do not always need to overhaul calipers in axle sets (pairs), doing so can result in more balanced braking and extended brake-pad life.
