Regular checks We offer free brake safety check
Brakes wear differently depending on the driving patterns, if you drive on the motorway you may find you get around 60,000 miles out of your brakes compared to 30,000 for someone who does a lot of city driving, stopping and starting.
Front brakes usually wear out before the rear as a higher percentage of the load is on the front.
Dont forget Brake Fluid! Brake Fluid plays a crucial part as it transfers the force created when you press on the brake pedal onto the wheel hub.
It serves as a lubricant of all the moveable parts and prevents corrosion.
When we fit breaks they go through rigorous quality checks before the customer drives away the head mechanic will inspect every vehicle that leaves the centre.
ABS systems Anti-lock Braking system, this works by limiting and releasing pressure to the wheel to stop your car locking up and skidding. ABS tests itself every time you switch on your car so if the ABS light stays switched on make sure you resolve the defect in the system as soon as possible.
When Bsmart Autocentre fits new brakes they recommend that you drive gently and carefully until they 'bed in', this takes approximately 200 miles. Excessive braking action on new parts will potentially damage them and lead to a loss of braking efficiency and performance.
