When Do You Need Brake Repair?

You can tell when you need to repair your brakes pretty easily. You can do this from the feel or touch of your brake pedal. If you have noticed it’s become loose or softer and requires you to push down much harder, than it may suggest your brakes are worn down. 

Another way to tell if your brakes need repairing is through the noise or vibration. If your pads are worn down you can usually hear a horrible scraping/scratching noise along with a deep vibration. This is a clear indication that you need to replace your brake pads. 

Gold Coast Brake Repairs & Inspection

Brake repair or replacement is super important and if fixed early, will not cost you a lot of money. Usually, you can tell if there is something wrong with your brakes from the feel of the pedal or any noises or vibrations that come from the brakes when used.

Fortunately, our mechanics are fully qualified to help diagnose what issues may need repairing on your brakes and can act on this quickly. For example, for brake pad replacement our mechanics can get this fixed up ASAP, always using high-quality parts.

Remember, you won’t void the manufactures warranty as we use manufacturer specifications on our repairs and you will also get a 12-month workmanship warranty for peace of mind.

How Long Should Your Brakes Last?

Your brakes should usually last around 20,000km depending on where & how you are driving. Usually, if you are driving on the Gold Coast local roads this requires more braking. Highway driving requires less braking. 

How Long Does It Take For Brake Pad Repairs?

Usually, we can fix your brakes pretty quickly. If we already know what issue you have with your brakes it makes it much easier as parts will be ready and fitted ASAP. Depending on what needs to be done, we can usually get all brake repairs done the same day.
