Are your car brakes in working order?

Just like exhausts, when your brakes have a problem, they will let you know. Some of the common signs that you might need to book in for car brake repair or brake replacement include:

  • A squealing or grinding noise when braking
  • Brakes juddering when applied
  • The vehicle pulls to one side when braking
  • A grinding noise when the brakes are applied
  • A grinding noise when the brakes are off
  • A loss of efficiency during heavy braking or on a long descent
  • A high, hard brake pedal
  • Rear wheels locking upon braking

Learn more about why your brakes may be squeaking from our detailed guide, as well as how to tell if you need new brakes. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or have any other concerns with your braking system, don't wait until it's too late – just phone or call in to your nearest Formula One Autocentre for your free brake check.
