What components does the brake inspection cover?

Our comprehensive brake check begins with a preliminary road test to check the braking system followed by a series of inspections in the following key areas: 

  • Brake Pedal - We will check the pedal travel and servo operation during a static test.
  • Pads & Shoes - We will measure the pads or shoes for wear and also check for damage.
  • Wheel Cylinder - We will examine the cylinder assembly and master cylinder for damage or fluid leaks. 
  • Disc Brake Calipers - We will examine the calipers, hoses and pipes, checking for damage or fluid leaks around each brake unit.
  • Precision Inspection - We will measure the discs or drums for wear as well as reporting any damage.
  • Handbrake - We will report the condition and operation of the handbrake. 
  • Brake Fluid - We will check the quality of the brake fluid to ensure it still lubricates effectively and has not taken in a high level of moisture.
  • Final Road Test - to check the braking system is working effectively.
