Brakes

It's important to make sure that your brakes are maintained and are operating at optimum levels and of course they will be tested as part of your MOT, so good maintenance can save you money down the line as well giving you peace of mind that they are operating safely.

The way in which you brake can affect how often you will need to service them, this may be different if you do a lot of motorway driving or drive in cities in rush hour. Typically front brakes will wear down before rear brakes as they bear more of the braking load.

It's recommended that brake pads should be replaced if the pad friction material is worn to 3mm and brake discs should be replaced if they are below the manufacturer's safe minimum thickness.

It's important to drive with caution when new parts are fitted so that they can 'bed in' which usually takes around 200 miles, preventing potential damage to the new parts and reduced performance.
