Brake systems are most important safety feature of your car, which is designed to slow down and stop the motion of your car. When you depress your brake pedal, your car transmits the force from your foot to its brakes through a fluid. Since the actual brakes require a much greater force than you could apply with your leg, your car must also multiply the force of your foot. The brakes transmit the force to the tires using friction, and the tires transmit that force to the road using friction to stop your car.

 
   
 

Brakes are a critical safety system of a vehicle. The brake system should be checked at every service and not be interfered with by anybody who does not have the appropriate skills and experience. Brake repairs should only be carried out by a qualified mechanic. A typical brake service would include:

Check disc brake and or drum shoe wear levels.
Replace front and rear pads/shoes if necessary.
Inspect brake fluid levels and check braking system components.
Road test vehicle to check that brakes are operating correctly.
