Brake Systems & Components Adjustments, Servicing & Replacements

Grease Monkey Garage Brake RepairsTo keep your car or van safe and roadworthy it is essential that your braking system is working correctly and efficiently. Depending on your vehicle it could be fitted with drums and brake shoes, brake discs and pads or a combination of the two. Brake discs can get scored or damaged reducing their efficiency and brake pads are also subject to wear. Similarly brake shoes will wear and require replacement. Handbrake cables can stretch and may require adjustment or replacement depending on the vehicle. Failure to deal with braking issues could render your vehicle unsafe and, in all likelihood, illegal. Clearly this is unacceptable to any responsible motorist.

Your brake system is served by a series of pipes, wheel cylinders, master cylinders and a brake servo. Over time these component can degrade or fail. Whilst MOT's will cover these components as part of an annual test, a sensible motorist will have these items checked as part of a regular maintenance routine and/or where there is some doubt as to the overall efficiency of the braking system.

Of course, we understand that losing your vehicle is a major convenience.

Let Grease Monkey Garage take care of all your vehicle servicing needs!

We appreciate that the terminology used by different manufacturers to describe their vehicle service schedules can be a touch confusing. Our aim is to steer you in the right direction. Most manufacturer will provide a schedule for each type of service and we would recommend that you keep to these schedules, even in your vehicle is out of warranty. Failing which we would recommend a service every 12,000 miles or 12 months to improve your chances of trouble-free motoring.

Services are invariably described using the following language:

  • Oil & Filter Change
  • Interim Service
  • Full Service
  • Manufacturer Service

The latter will involve following the manufacturers schedule and specification in terms of service and parts. This type of service is essential if your vehicle is within the manufacturer’s warranty period.

But don’t worry, we will go through the various options available to you based on your needs, those of the vehicle, any specific manufacturer requirements and, of course, your budget. We can also offer a brake fluid service, air conditioning service and scheduled cambelt changes.

Routine Maintenance, Diagnostics & Upgrades

The key to reliable motoring is a good maintenance regime and dealing with issues before they become expensive. All vehicles are subject to wear and tear and an MOT only covers the legal minimum standard for the road and, inevitably, it does not cover everything on your vehicle. Early, pre-emptive repairs can often prevent much larger expenses later or a complete failure. Whether you have a family vehicle, business vehicle or operate a fleet, we will be more than happy to maintain your vehicle or vehicles.

  • Winter Checks
  • Investigation and Diagnosis
  • MOT Preparations

For fleet operators we can, subject to negotiations, keep a selection of routine maintenance parts 'on the shelf' such as mirrors, bulbs, batteries etc.
