How a Brake Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

A qualified mechanic will check over your entire braking system to understand whats causing the issue. This includes checking of the brake fluid for contamination, brake lines, and removing the wheels to measure the thickness of the brake pads, rotors or shoes (if applicable).

The following components are looked at during a Brake Inspection:
- Brake pads and shoes
- Hydraulic fluid
- Rotor and drum wear
- Calipers
- Wheel cylinders
- All brake hardware
- All hoses and lines
- Master cylinder
- Anti-lock system

They will then quote up any repairs or replacement parts if required.

When your brake fluid is leaking its often as a result of a:

  • Worn Brake Pad
  • Damaged Master Cylinder Reservoir
  • Damaged Bleeder Valve
  • Damaged Brake Line
  • Failed Wheel Cylinder
  • Failed Piston Seal

Popular services linked to a Brake Inspection:

Front Brake Pad Replacement

Your front brake pads are the things that are pressed against the front brake rotors when you press the brake pedal. The friction between the pad and rotor is what creates the stopping ability. These need to be in top working condition. Not just to keep you safe and prevent accidents, they also need to be in good working order to pass a warranty of fitness.

Front Brake Rotor Replacement

Your brake rotors are what your brake pads are pressed against to slow the car down. They are the round, shiny, steel discs that you can see behind your front wheels. These are usually made out of steel or other strong steel materials.

Brake Booster Replacement

Your brake booster is what makes it easier to press the pedal in and slow the car down. You’d be surprised how hard it is to physically brake your car without a booster. It makes driving a whole lot easier and it’s something that you won’t truly appreciate till it’s gone.

ABS/Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement

These sensors have a pretty important job to do. These sensors tell your car how fast the wheels are rotating, this is then checked against the vehicle speed. If one wheel is spinning faster than the others then the ABS module will apply the brakes to that wheel to slow it down. If the wheel is registered as spinning slower or not spinning at all, then the ABS module will take steps to stabilise the wheel.
