If your parking brake won't release 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.
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
- 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.
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.
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.
Rear Brake Pad and Rotor Replacement
Most modern cars are fitted with rear brake discs unlike older models which typically used a drum set up. Disc brakes perform better than the older drum counterparts in terms of braking ability, however they don’t last as long as drums. Despite the braking bias being directed primarily towards the front of the car, the rear brakes do wear out. They also house the handbrake, parking brake or emergency brake. Which makes them a vital component.
