Brake pedal vibrates or shakes

If your brake pedal vibrates or shakes My Auto Shop can get it sorted with a Brake Inspection. Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

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 pedal vibrates or shakes its often as a result of a:

  • Worn brake rotor or drum
  • Worn brake pad
  • Wheel bearings and lug nuts
  • Worn Tyres

Popular services linked to a Brake Inspection:

Brake Hose Replacement

Your brake hose is what connects your hardlines to your brake caliper. They’re softer and more able to move so that they won’t leak or get damaged as your car goes over bumps or turns corners. They are essential to your braking performance and any leaks or damage should be fixed as soon as possible.

Brake Light Switch Replacement

It’s pretty common for a brake light bulb to blow out every now and again. If all the brake lights stop working, i.e nothing lights up when you press the brake pedal, then it’s most likely a problem with the wiring, relay or switches. If all your brake lights don’t come on then the switch may be faulty.

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.

Brake Fluid Flush

A spongy pedal feel, increased stopping distance or a WoF failure are all things that can come about from needing a brake fluid flush. Rather than get into an accident, get your system flushed to get some peace of mind.
