Check Your Brakes – Its about peace of mind & safety

Brake Pads & Brake Discs

Like your tyres, your brakes are also subject to wear and tear and regular checks need to be carried out:

  • Brake fluid check
  • Brake pad replacement
  • Brake disc inspection and replacement

How do you know when to replace brake pads and brake discs?

Your brakes need to be checked and replaced when you experience the following: shuddering, shaking & grinding or when the brake disc has been subjected to uneven wear patterns including warping, scoring and cracking.

Brake Pads must be replaced:

  • When the pad friction material thickness has worn down to 2mm
  • When the pad exhibits uneven wear
  • Must always be replaced simultaneously on all callipers on one axle, or your vehicle could exhibit uneven braking behaviour.
  • Use only disc brake pads which are matched to the vehicle

Brake Discs need to be replaced:

  • When the brake disc has worn down to the minimum brake disc thickness
  • When the brake disc has been subjected to uneven wear patterns including warping, scoring and cracking
  • The following local and international brands are available at Hi-Q Parow, Hi-Q Brackenfell, Hi-Q Strand, Tyrezone ContiPartner Durbanville & Fit & Go Brackenfell: Ate, Motorpart, Safeline Brakepads, Metelli, Ferodo.
