When driving the brakes in your car are directly responsible for reducing your travelling speed, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop, preventing over-acceleration going downhill and keeping your car stationary when parked. A lack of maintenance to your cars braking system can cause poor brake performance as well as increased car maintenance costs caused by unnecessarily worn components, such as your tyres. It is important to have your brakes regularly inspected, cleaned and adjusted by a qualified technician.

Seven Point Brake Checklist
To help protect the safety of you and your loved ones, follow the Seven Point Brake Checklist. If you notice any or all of them, it is time to get your brakes professionally inspected & checked.
- Loss of grip when braking
- The feeling of your car pulling left or right when braking

- Shuddering through your steering wheel when braking

Why is brake disc rotor care so important?
The brake disc rotors are a vital part of the braking system. The discs are circular metal plates in which the brake pad is forced up against to slow or stop the car. The smoother the surface, the more efficiently friction can be obtained to slow your car. So when new brake pads are fitted, machining or replacement (if worn below acceptable roadworthiness limits) of disc rotors will ensure your safety and the maximum possible braking efficiency.

When you bring your car in for a FREE Brake Inspection at Tyrepower North Lakes, your service technician will inspect and test your vehicle’s brake fluid to determine if you need it changed.
