Do I Need A Brake Inspection?

We offer various mobile brake services. If problems are identified, our mobile mechanics can help replace and repair the following:

A grinding or squeaking sound

Whilst you might initially just think it’s a bit irritating, grinding or squeaking coming from the brakes should demand your immediate attention..

A grinding or squeaking sound

If your brakes are grinding, it usually means the brake pads are heavily worn and need replacing. If you don’t act fast, it could damage the brake disc and end up costing you a lot more money. If your brakes are squeaking it could be for several reasons, including worn brake pads or a stuck brake caliper. In any event, to avoid further damage or complications, you should have your brakes checked over.

Your brake pedal is pulsating

Are you getting an odd ‘’pulsating’’ sensation from the brake pedal when you apply the anchors?

This could indicate the brake disc is getting too hot and has warped. If the disc warps, this pulsation will happen because the disc is no longer completely flat which affects how the brake pads interact with it. If you’re worried about this or find this happening more and more often, call our team and have your brakes checked.

You have a spongy or soft brake pedal

Sponginess or softness in a brake pedal is something that requires urgent attention. It usually means the brake fluid is ineffective. This could happen for a variety of reasons including air getting into the brake lines, a leak, or the brake fluid needing to be replaced. If the brake pedal goes completely limp there could be many other serious reasons too, such as a master cylinder fault. In any event, we urge you to stop driving and contact us straight away.

Old brake fluid

Speaking of brake fluid, even if your brakes seem to be working fine, it’s important to properly maintain the fluid. It’s recommended that you should change your brake fluid at least every two years. Beyond two years, the fluid becomes less effective as it absorbs moisture and makes the operation of the braking system less effective.

A dashboard warning light appears

It goes without saying, if a dashboard warning light comes on, you need to do something about it...

A dashboard warning light appears

If your brake warning light appears when you step on the pedal or it stays on permanently, this would usually suggest your brake fluid is dangerously low. There could also be a leak in the brake hoses or one of several other issues leading to the warning light’s appearance. In any event, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Our team would be happy to take a look for you.

Your car starts ‘pulling’ when you brake

When you hit the brake pedal, your car should stop in a straight line. If it pulls to either the left or right when you brake, it indicates a problem. A full brake check-up will identify exactly what the issue is. It’s highly likely that it’ll be as a result of a sticking component such as a seized-up brake caliper, for example.
