Brake Pad Replacement & Brake Service Guide
WHY ARE MY BRAKES MAKING A NOISE?
Squeaky brakes can be the cause of several issues such as worn out brake pads and deteriorated rotors and are a sign that you should definitely have your brake system inspected.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SERVICE MY BRAKES?
This really depends on what model of car you have and what kind of driving you’re doing. As most of our customers are based in Sydney they are frequently doing a lot of stop and start driving during heavy traffic. This kind of driving tends to wear out the braking system much faster than a car that does more highway driving. Your brakes should be inspected during every service (every 12 months or 15,000kms) to ensure your vehicle is safe.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A BRAKE SERVICE?
Here at Central Autohaus we provide a full and complete brake service. That means that we inspect the entire brake system including the master cylinder, all hoses, lines and brake hardware, calipers and wheel cylinders, rotors and/or drums.
WHY DOES CENTRAL AUTOHAUS USE ATE BRAKE COMPONENTS?
Ate manufactures the highest quality brake components, which is why we have relied on them for years. They have a proven track record of safety, high performance and durability. Furthermore they are designed to reduce brake dust keeping both your car and the environment cleaner.
HOW MUCH DOES A BRAKE SERVICE COST?
When it comes to servicing your brakes we always advise our customers to avoid budget repairers. Firstly from a safety perspective you do not want to cut corners on brake repair. Secondly some workshops may provide a cheap brake service quote by using low quality components which will wear out much faster and end up costing you more in the long run. To find out how much your brake pad replacement will cost just give our team a call, as prices can vary depending on your particular model of car. That being said, we always do our best to keep costs to a minimum. We offer in house disc machining which is a great way to stop brake squeal, prolong the life of your pads and save you the cost of replacing the discs. It’s also a good idea to check our promotions as we often offer discounts and coupons for brake replacement and brake services.
