Car Brakes

Your car’s brakes are, arguably, the most important bit of safety equipment it has. If yours are beginning to feel a bit “uncertain” or they’re making unusual (or any) noises, come to Hillwood Autos where we can inspect your brakes and advise on the safest course of action.

Three common ways car brakes can fail:

  • Brake Fluid Leak: if there is a leak in the brake fluid system, the hydraulic pressure required to engage the brakes effectively can be compromised. This may result in a soft or spongy brake pedal, reduced braking power, and an increased stopping distance.
  • Worn Brake Pads or Shoes: over time, the brake pads or shoes that create friction with the rotors or drums wear down. When they become too thin, the braking performance is diminished, and you may experience squealing or grinding noises when applying the brakes.
  • Brake System Malfunction: various components of the brake system, such as the master cylinder, callipers, wheel cylinders, brake lines, or ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) module, can malfunction due to wear, damage, or electrical issues. A malfunctioning brake system may lead to uneven braking, loss of ABS functionality, or complete brake failure.

It is crucial to regularly inspect and maintain your car’s brake system to ensure it is in proper working condition. If you notice any signs of brake issues, such as unusual noises, increased stopping distance, or a soft brake pedal, come to Hillwood Autos in Tamworth so we can address the problem and ensure your safety on the road.
