BRAKE SERVICE

Brakes are one of the most important parts of your vehicle for safety of you and your family. Brakes should be tested by our professional team of mechanics at O2 Autosports at every service and really shouldn’t be interfered with by anyone that doesn’t have the right skills and experience.

A normal brake service would include:

– Check disc brake and or drum shoe wear levels

– Replace front and rear pads/shoes if necessary

– Inspect brake fluid levels and check braking system components

– Road test vehicle to check that brakes are operating correctly

If you need your brakes tested, or think you may, don’t hesitate and contact us today!

POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • HOW LONG SHOULD MY BRAKES LAST?

    Depending on the vehicle application and driving conditions, brake pads should last anything from 15,000 to 70,000 kilometres. If you feel that your brake pads are wearing out quickly you may need to install heavier duty, temperature resistant brake pads. The main cause of premature wear is high temperatures caused by driving on steep terrain, towing heavy loads and constant braking. All these factors increase braking temperatures and reduce the life of brake pads.

  • WHY ARE MY BRAKES NOISEY?

    Brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise, however some noise is normal, but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning or banging means that your brakes need attention. There are many varying factors that can contribute to noise including vehicle application and driving style.

  • THERE'S A TERRIBLE VIBRATION WHEN I BRAKE. WHAT CAUSES THAT?

    If the brake pedal, steering wheel or the entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates when the brakes are applied, then the disc brake rotors may need resurfacing. More serious problems such as a loose component or a faulty steering mechanism can also cause vibration.

  • WHEN SHOULD BRAKES BE MACHINED?

    o2 AutoSports recommends that rotors be machined as a routine part of every brake job.

    Rotor thickness variation and surface irregularities can lead to brake noise and vibration. Some rotors cannot be satisfactory machined and replacement may be necessary. We always measure the thickness prior to commencing machining.

  • WHICH BRAKE PADS SHOULD I USE FOR MY CAR?

    The key to selecting the right brake pad for your car and to achieving efficient braking is matching your driving style and vehicle type with the right brake pad formulation. Contact us today to talk about the best solution for you.
