Brake Replacement in Uxbridge & Iver Tel: 01895 813900
Many take for granted one of the most important safety systems a vehicle can offer -- the brakes. Few parts on your car will be as important to you (and your passengers) as the brakes, which are responsible for slowing the car down and bringing it to a stop. Having a healthy, well-maintained set of brakes could possibly mean that you'll never even need those airbags and crumple zones.
Over time, those pads get worn out, reducing their ability to slow the car down. That's why it's important to change brake pads whenever it becomes necessary. We offer free advice on the condition of your brake pads and offer competitive rates for quality component replacements.
The following is a list of components within the brake system
Brake reservoir: Contains hydraulic brake fluid
Master cylinder: Device that pumps the fluid from the reservoir to brake lines that run throughout the vehicle
Brake lines: Rubber or steel braided hoses that run from the master cylinder to each brake caliper
Brake caliper: A steel housing that mounts on a fixed point of the brake rotor that contains a piston and brake pads
Brake piston: A round rod that extends and pushes against a brake pad when hydraulic fluid is fed from the master cylinder
Brake pad: A metal backing pad with a semi-metallic overlay that grips the steel rotor
Brake Disc: A steel disc mounted to each wheel and hub that the pads grasp to stop the wheels from rotating
Brake Pad Wear Sensor: Fitted to the brake pad to indicate when a brake pad is coming to the end of its' life. These can be electrical and once worn will indicate on the instrument panel (usually a circle with dots either side) or they can be metal and will start to squeek once the pad is low as it hits the disc.
