Brakes are an essential safety feature for all vehicles. As with all car parts, they are susceptible to wear and tear. Getting brake problems fixed sooner rather than later is paramount to your safety on the road and will ensure your car stays in good condition.
Brakes that are not on top form will cause your vehicle to fail its MOT, and they might not perform when you need them most. Whether the cause is corrosion, wear and tear or damage, common parts that we can repair and replace include: brake pipes, discs, pads, calipers and drums.
Our experienced mechanics can also perform ABS fault diagnostics and repairs.
Even if you’re a responsible driver, all brakes need replacing at some point.
We offer a friendly, no-nonsense service. If we diagnose any faults with your brakes we will discuss any work with you before going ahead. If we don’t find any problems, we’ll advise on your options. We want you to feel safe on the road and will do the best we can to get to the bottom of what’s wrong with your vehicle.

They should last for an average of 50,000 miles before they need replacing. But this can vary depending on driving habits and the type you have. If you have an MOT test in Peterborough coming up, make sure your brake pads are working sufficiently.
Knowing when your brake pads are on their way out is important. Symptoms of worn or malfunctioning brake pads include loud noises or feeling your car vibrate when you apply the brakes. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you should take your car to a mechanic as soon as possible.
Quotes for repairs can vary depending on what is required; on some occasions, the full extent of repairs is not always known until it is fully diagnosed. Rather than replacing parts that are not completely worn out, we will advise you when they are likely to need replacing.
