Included in our Brake services (as required):
- Disc and drum machining
- Brake pad and shoe replacement
- Inspection, testing and repairs of all components
- Checking, flushing and refilling of brake fluid
- Inspection and repairs of brake lines
- Inspection of emergency brake / hand brake
Here are some of the common problems you will notice with your brakes that should indicate they need a service:
Brake pedal sits lower than it used to - usually indicates a problem with the brake fluid itself or the hydraulic system through which it runs
Braking takes a lot of effort - could be a problem with the booster which is meant to magnify the force you apply to the brake pedal to the level needed to stop the car
Brake is hard, feels spongy or the call pulls to one side when you brake - typically a problem in your brake lines such as a leak which prevents to brake fluid from flowing through the system properly
Protect yourself with a Brake Service
Brake Service or repairs are clearly required if your car takes longer to stop than normal when you hit the brakes.. However there are less noticeable warning signs that you must look out for to maintain your safety when travelling on the road.
If you notice the following warning signs - it's time to test your brakes.
- There is a spongy soft or harder feel to your brake pedal
- The brake pedal feels low
- During braking your vehicle loses grip
- Your car pulls to the left or right while braking
- The steering wheel shudders when braking
- You hear a high pitched squeak or squeal when the brakes are applied.
If your vehicle displays any of these signs, contact us at Southeast Auto as soon as possible.
Brakes are critical for safety in all vehicles; not having regular brake maintenance and testing means you are putting your life in danger. Braking systems should get an examination at every service and by a qualified technician.
At Southeast Auto we offer a free 65 Point Vehicle Inspection report with every car service that we perform, and advise you if we feel there are any immediate safety concerns, and offer the advised repairs or service. Our written report will also let you know if there are requirements in the near future you should plan for.

- Front Brake Pads/Shoes
- Front Brake Disc Rotors/Drums
- Front Calipers
- Front Brake Hoses/Clips/Springs
