Brake repairs in Walton-on-Thames from Ashley MOT & Service Centre

Your brakes are probably the most important part of your car

If your car is having a braking problem, whether it’s weak brakes, a mushy pedal, grinding sounds – whatever your brake problem is, you need to troubleshoot and repair it as soon as possible.
Diagnosing the problem
Your car may have more than one silencer box fitted. The silencer is designed to absorb sound waves created by the engine and reduces this to a level that is legally and environmentally acceptable.
The silencer joins onto the tailpipe at one end and the catalytic converter at the other.
Low Brake Fluid Level
Check your brake fluid. If it’s low, top it off to the mark on the side of the reservoir.
Contaminated Brake Fluid
Even though your brakes operate in a closed system, contaminants can still work their way into the system. Air can enter the system through the smallest hole, and you can end up with water in the system from condensation and other means.
There’s not really any way to check for this, but bleeding your brakes will remove the bad stuff and replace it with new fluid.
Worn Brake Pads
Your brakes should never wear low enough to cause your brake pedal to feel low, they’ll scream at you before then. But if they do get very low, you might have this problem.
Replace your brake pads as soon as possible. Of course, this can be avoided with regular brake inspection.
