Loud noise is coming from rear brakes

If your hearing a loud noise coming from your rear brakes 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 hearing a loud noise coming from your rear brakes its often as a result of a:

  • Worn Brake Pad
  • Broken or Missing Caliper Bolt
  • Contact with the Squealer
  • Parking Brake Shoes Stuck
  • Wheel Bearing Failure
  • Pads Settling into Place
  • Normal Pad Vibration

Popular services linked to a Brake Inspection:

Rear Brake Pad Replacement

Asides from stopping your car when you brake, they are also required as part of your warrant of fitness. The reason you need these as part of a WoF is because they keep you and everyone else safe on the road. They’re an essential part of your car.

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.

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.

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.
