Brisbane Brake and Clutch Servicing

With more horsepower being delivered at the wheels of the vehicle in modern cars the demands on the vehicles braking and drive systems have increased dramatically.

In 2000 asbestos was removed from all braking systems and was basically replaced with various compounds ranging from semi metallic to organic compounds.

This has meant that brake systems often run hotter than previously which has changed the way brakes are serviced.

In many cases to increase efficiency, vehicles have been fitted with softer brake rotors and harder compound brake pads.

At Northside Automotive your brakes are visually inspected for:

  • Fluid leaks
  • Brake hose inspection
  • Brake shoe/pad wear
  • Brake drum/Rotor wear
  • Condition of brake fluid
  • Mechanical operation
  • Hydraulic operation
  • Hand brake operation

If your vehicle is fitted with Anti Lock Brakes (ABS) this system is also tested and reported on.

Customers are advised of repairs required and costs.

NB: Rotors and drums have a strict legal wear limit to ensure safe operation.

Northside Automotive will not machine beyond these limits, as this places your safety and the vehicles insurance cover at risk.

Technicians found to be machining components beyond the legal limit face heavy penalties from the Transport department and can in some cases be held liable for damage in the case of an accident.
