A brake repair can be carried out by the team who works with us. There are many different parts to car brakes such as brake fluid, brake pads, brake discs, shoes and drums. The type of car brake service you need is the best indicator of time requirements. There are two ways to check for brake wear on disc brakes: by looking and by listening. First, check for wear by looking at your brake pads through the spaces between the wheel's spokes. The outside pad will be pressed against a metal rotor. Generally, there should be at least 1/4 inch of pad.
