Brake problems in the UK are not uncommon. At Treadstones, we get numerous brake repair requests on a daily basis. However, by the time most people bring in their car for brake repair Leicester, it’s almost always too late, and there’s no way to fix it. In such instances, we go for a complete overhaul of the system and replace the necessary components.
Brake issues manifest very gradually, making it hard for daily drivers to notice it immediately. Additionally, brakes are not very repair-friendly. Most of the brake parts are metallic components that wear out with regular use. These parts, once worn out, need replacements. In spite of these limitations, or rather because of them, it is critical that you get your brakes at our garage checked once in a while.
Understanding brake problems
Brakes are incredibly complex pieces of machinery with multiple components working together. Our master technicians have a thorough knowledge of these components and have ample experience in fixing them. The major components of a braking system include-
- Brake pads
- Brake lines
- Brake disc (in disc brakes)
Most of these components withstand constant heat and pressure day in and day out. Although they are made from high strength and high tensile materials, the perpetual pressure takes its toll on them, and they wear out ever so slowly.
Diagnosing faulty brakes
It takes a keen observer to notice the subtle signs of brake problems. If you are of the impression that brake failure happens all of a sudden, you are mistaken. The process starts much earlier with the components wearing out gradually. If you are attentive enough, you will be able to diagnose brake problems before they become critical. Look out for the following signs.
- Soft clutch pedal, which is an indicator of leaking hydraulic fluid
- Unpleasant odour near the wheels while applying brakes
- Increased braking distance, which is an indicator of worn out brake pads
- ABS warning light
- Pull to one side while applying brakes
- Squeaking or screeching noise, another indicator of worn-out brake pads
These are all clear indicators that you need to come to our garage for brake repair in Leicester. Our experts will check the essential parameters and repair or replace parts as they deem necessary.
