Your vehicle’s braking system is of paramount importance.  You never know what’s around the corner and when you might need to stop quickly and safely.   For this reason, it is essential to have your braking system checked regularly by a professional.  Our full brake inspection examines the condition of all your car brakes and its components, such as brake pads and discs, to keep you safe – our main priority – and to help prevent more costly repair bills in the future.

If you are unsure about the state of your brakes, book a brake check today.  We will check all aspects of your braking system to identify any issues.  Larkins Automotive Services recommended that you replace your brake fluid every 2 years to prevent moisture build up in the hydraulic fluid, which can result in brake fade.

Sign of brake wear and what to look out for

It’s not always obvious that your car’s brake pads and discs need replacing, but there are a few warning signs to look out for.   If you hear an unusual noise such as the car’s brakes juddering or squeaking when braking.  If you find your vehicle pulling to one side you may need to have your vehicle braking system inspected.  Simple wear and tear can also mean that you experience a reduction in brake performance.
