Mobile Brake Disc Replacement In Essex
If you have noticed that your brakes are making a distinctive grinding sound, or if you’re suddenly experiencing a pulsing feeling radiating through your pedal, then it could be time to get yourself a brake disc replacement. Its paramount that you get your brake discs checked if you notice something out of the ordinary.
Here at BrakeFit Mobile, we specialise in brake disc replacements in Essex. Included in this brake disc replacement service will be the provision of brand-new brake pads.
Thankfully, brake discs are designed to last almost twice as long as brake pads. This is owing to the nature of the material (cast iron, or a reinforced carbon) and their inherent ability to withstand larger amounts of pressure over longer periods of time. When the brake pads start to really degrade, exceeding the wear limit, the steel brake pad backing will begin damaging and scoring the brake discs, this will reduce their effectiveness and quickly becomes unsafe. Once you have noticed that your discs are degrading, it is vital that you resolve this issue as soon as you can. The main warning signs will be a grinding or a pulsing sensation coming from the brake pedal, either under pressure/in use or otherwise, leaning to one side under braking or screeching under braking. We provide a full brake disc replacement service (you can also choose to just have your front or your rear brake discs replaced) and as such we include free brake pads (inclusive of fitting) with every new brake disc replacement that we provide.

|We will remove and dispose of the worn and/or damaged brake discs, as well as the brake pads and any other components that need removing and replacing|
|We'll inspect the calliper and the torque plate in detail so as to determine whether or not the calliper is operating freely (i.e. whether or not there are stuck callipers)|

|We will lubricate all applicable brake system components, such as the calliper sliding pins, proceeding to fully inspecting the condition of the brake fluid and adding more if it is required|
|An important part of this process is the visual sanity check of all newly installed components This ensures our technicians are wholly satisfied with the installation and with the health of the vehicle|
|We'll then make sure to reset where appropriate any/all dashboard wear indicators/ warning lights - we know how annoying these can be!|
