If you’re experiencing any of the following driving symptoms, it is a likely indicator of a problem with your brakes: If your brakes are squealing, pulling the vehicle to one side or making your steering wheel shake, it’s time to see the Hamilton Automotive team. Brakes can degrade slowly due to the wear and tear of day to day use, this can make it difficult for vehicle owners to notice the changes.

Our expert mechanics can test your braking system and make any necessary repairs. Your brake hoses and fluid can also be checked and replaced if needed.

If you have any problems, or see changes in your vehicle’s braking performance, come in and see us. Sometimes it may be a simple case of brake dust that causes your brakes to squeal, however, no matter the cause, our technicians will identify and fix the problem, giving you peace of mind.

For the sake of safety, it is vital that any brake repairs be carried out straight away, with any worn or faulty parts quickly repaired or replaced.

Our Hamilton Automotive mechanics will check for:

  • Splits in brake hoses

  • Rusty brake pipes

  • Leaks in the sealed system

Different driving styles can have an impact on the life of your tyres.

We guarantee all our parts, so that you can feel confident. Our premium products and workmanship will provide the maximum kilometres from your brake pads.

Cheap brake pads are not worth the trouble they cause. As well as being noisy and prone to squealing, they cover your wheels in brake dust and only last a third as long.

If you are often on the road, stuck in peak hour traffic, or live in a hilly area, you need to be aware of how this can affect your vehicle. Constant braking can cause your brake fluid to boil and thin out. This is commonly referred to as “brake fade”. Once this has happened, you will need to have your brake fluid replaced.

It pays to be aware that brake fluid also absorbs water. Once it gets into your system it can rust everything.

We recommend a service and replacement at least every 2 years. You’ll be pleased to know at Hamilton Automotive we offer full brake machining in our workshops. We will advise you on the condition of your brakes. It’s all part of the service that we routinely provide for your benefit.
