Brake Services

It should go without saying that keeping your brakes in good working order is one of the most essential requirements for keeping you and everyone else safe when you’re on the road. Driving with faulty brakes is not only a leading cause of accidents in the UK, but also one of the main reasons cars fail their MOTs.

At UK Tyres, our expert mechanics at our North London depot offer a full range of brake services, including brake checks, that can make sure your vehicle is safe for you to drive or determine if you might need new brake discs and/or pads.

During a brake service, our professional mechanics will examine a number of key components in your car, including your brake pads, brake discs, callipers, brake lines / pipes and brake fluid.

Brake Repairs

There are many reasons why you may develop problems with your brakes. These include:

  • Challenging driving conditions
  • Extreme weather
  • Frequent braking while driving
  • Overloading the vehicle

Thankfully, there are a few things you might notice while driving that could suggest that you might have a developing problem with your brake pads or discs and that car brake repairs could be needed. These include:

Screeching/scraping noises when braking – This is usually the result of worn-out brake pads

Odd juddering of brake pedals and steering – If your car vibrates when you apply the brake, it might be because the thickness of the disc is uneven or warped

Spongy brake pedal – This is usually due to air or moisture in the braking system, issues with the master cylinder or deteriorated brake fluid.

Vehicle drifting in one direction – This happens as a result of a faulty brake hose or callipers

Unresponsive brake pedal – This happens when your brake fluid level is too low, which is needed to create hydraulic pressure against the calliper

If you do notice any of these problems, our mechanics will be able to examine your brakes to assess their condition and do whatever is needed to keep you both safe and legal on the road.
