Brake Repairs

Brake pads and brake rotors are classified as wear items. As a result, brake fluids, pads, shoes and rotors should be assessed at regular intervals to ensure that your brake system is working effectively.

At ABC Tyrepower and Mechanical Rosebery, we recommend the use of premium brake pads and components. We also offer disc and drum machining. If you're in Rosebery, or the surrounding areas, including Alexandria, Mascot, Green Square, Zetland, Waterloo and the South Sydney Area, call us on (02) 9690 0177 to discuss your brake servicing and repairs today.

Warning Signs for Your Brakes

There is a seven-point list of things to look out for that let you know it may be time for brake repairs.

  • Loss of grip when braking

  • The feeling of your car pulling left or right when braking

  • A sloppy, soft or low brake pedal

  • Shuddering through your steering wheel when braking

  • Squeals, screeches and high-pitched noises when braking

  • Your brake warning light flashes

  • Your car takes longer to stop than normal

How Brakes Work

There’s a lot you don’t see when you step on the brakes. Pressing the brake pedal sends out fluid that activate your braking system. This forces the brake pad onto the disc rotor, causing friction and bringing your car to a stop. The brake pads of your car are fitted to the brake calliper. This is the part of the car that applies and releases the brake pads from the disc rotor.

Over time, friction wears down the brake pads, and they begin to lose their stopping power and cause damage to your brake pistons. This is why brake pads will need replacing pretty regularly.

Brake Callipers

Your brake callipers house one or more pistons depending on the model of your brakes. These pistons push or release when the brake pedal is operated. Specifically designed rubber components ensure that hydraulic brake fluid does not leak or allow dirt into the system. This is another element to keep an eye on when maintaining your brakes.
