How often should I book a car brake service?

Servicing brakes should occur when the car makers recommend or within time intervals. These recommendations are usually after 8,000 to 11,000km or every 4 to 6 months. If not, then at least once a year or every 19,000km is still appropriate for a brake service. If you are unsure whether your car is due for a break service, feel free to contact our friendly team. They’ll explain the ins and outs of our car brake repairs, plus recommend other services that can help keep your car in top shape.

As this may seem like a lot of servicing goes into brakes, we ensure that we work fast and correctly. Moreso, our brake car repair cost is set at an affordable price to ensure that the financial stress of your car is kept to a minimum.

What are the signs I need brake servicing?

If there’s one thing you don’t want to experience during driving, it’s faulty brakes. Not only can this be incredibly dangerous if left unfixed, but it can also cause long-term damage to your vehicle. Some of the signs your car may need a brake service are:

  • The brake pedal feels too soft — Your brake pedal should feel firm to the touch every time. If your brakes feel too ‘easy’ to press or you have to push the brake to the floor, it may be time to book a car brake repair service.
  • You hear a loud squeaking — Noisy braking is the most tell-tale sign of faulty brakes and could indicate that your brake pads have become worn out and need to be replaced.
  • The steering wheel vibrates when you brake — If you experience a shaky steering wheel every time you brake, it could be a sign that your rotors’ surface is uneven.

The three benefits of brake servicing your car

The amount of money on repairs decreases

If you regularly maintain and service your car’s brakes, the chance of a major repair decreases. These major car brake repairs are expensive, so having a service can limit the possibility of a lot of money and time being spent on the brakes. While we may be experts in our field, you can rest assured that Peninsula Auto Clinic offers competitive and fair pricing across our range of services, including car brake repairs.

Longer lifespan of the braking system

A longer lifespan will occur if the brakes are kept healthy for longer periods of time. More major repairs and maintenance services will hinder the system’s lifespan and could cost you more in the long run. Thus, having regular maintenance will ensure that the system lasts longer and works well, keeping your car on the road for as long as possible. 


Service on the brakes ensures the safety of both you and your passengers. Braking systems are what stop the car and having it not working is extremely dangerous. Regularly servicing your brakes strengthens their ability to stop quickly in an emergency situation. 

General processes involved in a brake service

The brake mechanic team here at Peninsula Auto Clinic will properly work to fix any issues the car’s brakes have. We will inspect each brake system part and test to identify any problems. Servicing brakes is important to limit the chances of damage and repairs that might happen in the future. Moreover, the service guarantees that if a concern is identified, this issue is treated sooner before the damage becomes beyond repair.

Our professional and experienced team will comprehensively examine your car’s brakes, testing that all systems are functioning effectively or if parts need replacing, and check in on any concerns or issues you are experiencing.

Brake Inspection

Every car brake service at Peninsula Auto Clinic starts with a thorough inspection. When inspecting the brakes, our brake specialist crew will check all systems and parts involved to ensure they are working properly.

We understand that every car is designed to run differently, which is why we tailor our inspection to all vehicle types. We will also use the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure that we know exactly how the brake system operates. Moreso, if our customers have suspected anything, for example, hearing squeaks, grinds or other unknown noises, it helps us to quickly identify the source and tackle it correctly.

Disc Brake Service

Once our initial inspection is complete, we’ll then move on to checking the disc brakes. We will remove the pads and callipers to clean and lubricate the guide pins and calliper brackets. This is to ensure that the possibility of the parts seizing or sticking to not happen. We will also clean the brake discs if rust is present to prevent squeaking and rust damage.

Rear Drum Service

Next, we’ll move onto the rear drums, which involves simply cleaning and lubricating the parking brake parts, lubricating parts and other areas in the rear drum system. Adjustments and removing dust may also occur in the service to prevent a buildup of debris.

If you have any questions about our car brake repair service, please contact us at 9999 2553.

Brake Pad Replacement

Replacing brakes will occur after the car has been driven per 25,000km. Also, if the brakes have been pulsating, when braking the car moves to one side or if the brakes go down further this can also indicate the need for service. This type of servicing ensures that the brakes will stop safely and properly.

Brake Fluid Replacement

The brake fluid is what helps the brakes function and is really important that it is replaced each 12-36 months. We will replace the current fluid with fresh and clean fluids to ensure that the system is running well.
