Brake Safety Awareness

August is brake safety month – this is a great reminder to ensure that you check your brakes with Enoggera Workshop!

Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. A vehicle’s braking system should be checked at least once a year and a thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems. Brakes are one of the most important parts of your car to ensure are working at all times.
If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, they should be inspected. Other warning signs include:

  • An illuminated brake warning light
  • Brake grabbing
  • Low pedal feel
  • Vibration
  • Hard pedal feel
  • Squealing

Several factors affect brake wear including driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair, such as letting the brakes get to the “metal-to-metal” point, which can be potentially dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.
Here at Enoggera Workshop we offer free safety checks, which include checking that your Brakes are safe. We care about your safety, and encourage our customers to get regular checks, and ensure that they have their cars serviced regularly too.
