Brakes in Nottingham

Call one of our experts if you are experiencing any issues with your vehicle


A fully functioning brake system is crucial to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. Your vehicle's brake system involves highly engineered parts and precise movements that stop your vehicle by converting kinetic energy into thermal energy. When you press down on the brake pedal, the master cylinder pressurizes a system of hydraulic brake lines leading to each of the vehicle's wheels, where brake pads or shoes press against a disc or drum and create the necessary friction needed to slow the vehicle to a complete stop. Over time, this friction and heat has the potential to wear down the brake shoes, brake pads, callipers, and other braking components.

Bad brakes display warning signs for impending brake maintenance. For example, if your brakes squeal or grind when in use, then your brake pads may be worn and require replacements. If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking, then this may point to worn brakes, a malfunctioning calliper, or low brake fluid in the brake lines. If your brake pedal presses down too easily—also known as "spongy" brakes—then this may be an indication of too much air in the hydraulic brake lines. Sometimes a warning light on your dashboard will alert you to a potential brake issue by a service indicator light on the dashboard. While these are only some of the most common signs of potential problems with your vehicle's brake system, noticing these signs of faulty brakes can save you money down the line. If you experience any of signs of bad brakes, like unusual squealing or grinding noises, then contact us online or call us today to have your brakes checked immediately.
