Never risk your safety by driving with cheap or worn brake pads! Regular maintenance & safety checks at Auto1 will ensure that you can stop when you need to.
Of course, you should also be aware of the tell-tale warning signs including noises, stopping distances, and the feel of the pedal under your foot – at Auto1 we only supply Premium Brand local & international brake pads, for your safety, and our peace of mind…
Usually, Auto1 is the first workshop in town to be supplying and fitting brake pads previously only available from the Agents - most motorplan schemes do not include brake pads, so give us a ring!
Like pads, brake discs are a safety-critical item, and at Auto1 we believe in matching or exceeding the manufacturer's required specifications!
We stock & supply the best brake discs available, and carefully match the disc and pad to ensure maximum product life and minimum stopping distances...
Many mechanics advise that if a pad/shoe has below 2/32 of an inch left, it must be replaced.
A lot of drivers wait up until they hear the noise of the metal wear indication, which can only be heard after the brake pad.shoe is worn.
This is a solid indication that the brake pads are worn greatly and have to be replaced.
One of the first symptoms of bad or failing drum brakes is an unusual brake pedal feel.
If the brake drums are worn excessively they can cause vibrations that may be felt in the pedal.
Worn drums may also cause shuddering or pulsating that will become noticeable once you step on the pedal.
Let’s face it: A clutch overhaul or replacement is unfortunately, going to set you back some time and money. There is no point either, in opting for the cheapest product in town – it won’t be long and you’ll be repeating the exercise. Trust the Auto1 team to find & fit only the best-guaranteed quality products for your car, at a fair price of course.
If cash is tight, Auto1 hosts a credit facility linked to most major financial houses in order to help ease the blow.
