When you need your braking system inspected or diagnosed for problems, you can count on our automotive service centre for honest, custom-driven services.
The Importance of Regular Brake Servicing
With more horsepower being delivered at the wheels of the vehicle in modern cars, the demands on the vehicle’s braking and drive systems have increased dramatically. To increase efficiency, many vehicles have been fitted with softer brake rotors and harder compound brake pads.
In 2000, asbestos was removed from all braking systems with replacements ranging from semi metallic to organic compounds. This has meant that brake systems often run hotter than previously, which has changed the way brakes are serviced.
What Does Brake Servicing Include?
At Albany Creek Auto Centre, your brakes are visually inspected for:
- Fluid leaks
- Brake hose inspection
- Brake shoe/pad wear
- Brake drum/Rotor wear
- Mechanical operation
- Hydraulic operation
- Hand brake operation
If your vehicle is fitted with Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) this system is also tested and reported on. Any issues are repaired after we advise you of the requirements and costs.
Rotor and Drum Wear
Rotors and drums have a strict legal wear limit to ensure safe operation. Albany Creek Auto Centre will not machine beyond these limits, as this places your safety and the vehicles insurance cover at risk.
Technicians found to be machining components beyond the legal limit face heavy penalties from the Transport department and can in some cases be held liable for damages in the case of an accident.
