Brakes

Brake servicing and replacement is critical to your vehicles safety. At Tyre & Wheel we specialise in Brake maintenance and can test your vehicle at any time. As a driver you should understand the basics of your vehicles brakes.

The Basics of Brake Hardware

Drum Brakes and Disc Brakes are the two basic types of braking systems. Both stop the car by forcing a high friction material against iron drums or discs attached to the wheels.

PULL
The car pulls to one side when the brakes are applied.

GRAB
“Touchy” brakes grab with the least pedal pressure

DRAG
Sticking brakes, hot wheels or an apparent engine power loss are all signs of drag.

SQUEAL
Excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter,clatter or bang, means your brakes need attention.

LOW PEDAL
The pedal nearly touches the floorboard before the brakes function.

HARD PEDAL
Extreme foot pressure is equired to make the brakes function.

VIBRATION
The brake pedal, steering wheel, or the entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates.

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT
he parking brake is on, or, there is a serious drop in hydraulic pressure.
