Another reason to use Maitland Motors; Proud to be a Pagid/ IMI Professionally Accredited Brake Specialists

We take brakes very seriously here at Maitland Motors. Along with your tyres, your brakes are what keeps you safe on the road, so when Ross got the chance to become a Pagid/ IMI Professionally Accredited Brake Specialists, he couldn’t say no. Its not worth thinking about how badly things can go wrong if your brakes are in poor condition and not working properly.

On his course, Ross learnt a few new things that he’s been able to bring back to the workshop to give you an even better service. It just shows that even after 20 years in the motor trade, you never stop learning. A few interesting points he’s passed on the rest of the team were; the boiling point of Dot 4 brake fluid is 155 degrees. Important to know when checking for moisture, which could, in worst-case scenarios, means a loss of brake action. How to get more out of a tool we use for measuring pads and discs, making adjustments more accurate. The maximum run out for a disc is just 0.07mm, after this, you’ll start to feel judders. A hub is .03mm before you’ll start to feel vibrations. Depending on how many miles you do, this could happen sooner than you think.

Things to look out for that’ll mean its time to get your brakes checked include:

  • Your car is juddering when braking
  • There is a squealing noise when braking
  • Uneven brake pad wear
  • Surface looks discoloured
