Inspections are recommended every 10,000 km. or every 6 months or manufacturer recommendation. The service technician will inspect, where applicable, brake lines, drums, pads, shoes, calipers, disks, rotors, ABS and parking brake. This helps advise the customer of the condition of the braking system and effective in helping catch a potential issue.
To help extend the life span of your brakes, a brake service is recommended. A brake service is when all moving components are cleaned and lubricated, pads or shoes are deglazed, and if applicable, drums are adjusted. This prevents premature wear from seized component and promotes even pad wear. This service is recommended every 25,000 km or once a year.
Brakes are parts on a vehicle that it is normal to have replaced due to constant use. Every application of the brakes causes a little wear and over time these parts need to be replaced for function and safety purposes. Where applicable, the following will be replaced: drums, pads, shoes, calipers, disks, rotors.
Brake fluid is what is transmitted to each brake when you apply the pressure on the pedal to slow down or stop your vehicle. This fluid is the heart of the brake system. If the fluid is contaminated, or low, the brake system will not function properly. This service is recommended when a full brake replacement is completed or every 40,000km.
