Car pulls to left or right when braking

If your vehicle pulls to left or right when you brake My Auto Shop can get it sorted with a General 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 General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When your vehicle pulls to left or right when you brake its often as a result of a:

  • Stuck caliper
  • Uneven tyre pressure
  • Worn out brake pads
  • Worn or warped rotors
  • Collapsed brake hose
  • Worn suspension parts

Popular services linked to a General Inspection:

Rear Window Replacement

The rear window is the often forgotten, but not dissimilar, cousin to the front windscreen. While not utilised quite as much, it is still crucial to be able to drive safely on our populated roads, as well as serve as a structural support to the car.

While it may not incur as many stone chips as the front windscreen, when damaged, it does need to be replaced. Fortunately, it may have less sensors and display units than the font windscreen, so it is likely to be cheaper.

Car Window Tinting

Window tinting is not an essential part of car ownership, however, not only will it make you look cooler, it’ll make your car cooler too. There are plenty of benefits of window tinting, besides aesthetics. Made out of a variety of scratch and UV resistant materials, window tinting will continue to provide benefits to your driving experience beyond the style points.

Brake Light Bulb Replacement

When you see something that requires you to slow down or to stop, it’s always good to let other drivers know you’re stopping.

Wheel Balance

Got the shakes? Don’t blame last night out, blame your unbalanced wheels. They can lead to a bumpy ride, vibrations, wear and tear on your tyres’ tread and your car’s suspension system, as well as on your wallet through reduced fuel economy. Wheel balancing is a process undertaken to balance the weight of a tyre and wheel assembly to ensure it travels evenly and creates even wear across the tyre surface.
