Autobarn Know How


    Brake Service


    Maintaining the brakes on your vehicle is important to keep yourself and other road users safe. Worn disc brake pads, disc rotors, or brake shoes (in a drum brake system) can be dangerous and can also render a vehicle un-roadworthy. A visual inspection with the wheels removed can identify worn components. It is also important to look for signs of brake fluid leakage from hydraulic components such as brake callipers, wheel cylinders, the master cylinder and brake hoses.

    Also, paying attention to the signals your vehicle is giving you whilst driving can help determine brake problems.

  • Do you hear squealing or grinding noises when the brakes are applied? This could indicate worn out brake pads, shoes or a disc rotor issue
  • Does the steering wheel shake while braking? This usually indicates a problem with the disc rotors
  • Does the pedal feel soft, or sink towards the floor when braking? This could indicate a hydraulic problem
