Car Brakes Guide

Your car’s brakes are the single-most important safety feature in your car, so it’s essential that you take good care of them and get them checked out regularly, especially if you’re a frequent driver. You can test your brakes yourself every time you step into your car, but you should head to a trusted car garage like T&N whenever you hear squeaking and grinding, when a brake warning light comes on in your dashboard, when you suspect a brake fluid leak or when it takes you longer to stop than it used to. Failing to maintain your brakes and have them regularly checked can increase your stopping distance, and in some cases, result in road collisions. Below, we’ve put together a guide to help you maintain your brakes.

Car Brakes Faq's

The basics of braking are pretty straightforward: when you put your foot down on the brake, your car will slow down. But most drivers don't know exactly how the braking system works. When you apply force to the pedal, a hydraulic system will kick in, pushing a signal to your brake cable and applying friction to your car's wheels. This friction is transferred from your tyres to the ground, causing your vehicle to come to a stop.

The truth is that, even if you’re the most sensible and efficient driver, your brakes will wear down over time. However, driving on roads with hills and sharp turns, riding on your brakes, driving in built-up areas with heavy traffic and stop-and-start driving, and using cheap and unreliable brake pads can all have an impact on the lifespan and wear of your brakes.

The length of time between brake checks will be determined not by the number of miles you drive, but the performance of your driving. For example, those who regularly drive long stretches on motorways would not need to check their brakes as much as someone who drives in the city and regularly gets stuck in traffic, as they use their brakes more regularly.

Rather than your car brakes being a single component, your "brakes" are in fact a system of components that work together to give you control over your car. So, when you head to the garage and ask for a brake service, you should receive brake pad and shoe replacement, and brake rotor polishing or replacement. Your brake's calliper or calliper pin may need to be replaced, too, and your brake fluid should be flushed every two years, or per your vehicle's manufacturer guidelines.

At T&N, we're proud to offer free brake checks to all of our customers. When you book a check and bring your vehicle to our garage, a qualified member of our team will check out your brake pads, hoses, discs, callipers and handbrake linkages, and give you a full report at the end of the check. If new brakes or brake repairs are required, we'll talk you through the reasons why, advise you of the costs before you make a decision and help you book a slot.

Although brake pads will come to the end of their life at some point, you can take steps to prolong their life and save money. First, plan when you're driving; slow down before you come to a red light or stop sign rather than braking harshly at the last minute. When you're driving downhill, drive in a lower gear to help you control and maintain the speed of your car, letting the engine do some of the work and reducing the impact on your brakes.
