Brake Service & Repairs

Warning! Poor brakes can cause accidents.

When you need your brakes serviced, you cannot afford to make any mistakes. We only use the highest quality brake parts.

Some of the brake services we offer:

  • Front and Rear Reline – Worn components are replaced with parts that match or exceed original manufacturer’s specifications, or when an upgrade or change in driving conditions demands a different performance standard.
  • Disc and Drum Machining – For optimum life, smooth operation and better performance.
  • Disc Grinding – To match original manufacturer’s specifications for smooth operation and optimum life.
  • Caliper servicing and overhaul – like any moving component of a car, calipers need attention and service. A worn caliper is dangerous.
  • Wheel cylinder replacement and service
  • Hydraulic Service – Brake systems rely on effective hydraulic parts and fluid to make a car stop as it should. From the booster to the pedal, we can ensure all components run smoothly and safely.
  • Disc Rotors – Rotors are the heart of the modern car’s braking system. Rotors do wear and must remain within manufacturer’s thickness tolerances for safe and efficient performance. Upgraded rotors are available for heavy towing and performance driving.

Custom Brake Caliper Painting

As the size of custom wheels continues to grow, and with modern, sleek styling featuring fewer spokes or other wide open designs, your vehicle’s brake parts are standing out like never before. Unfortunately, brake calipers are generally created for function and not form; to perform but not be seen. What do you do when your ugly brake parts are showing? Accentuate your style by painting your brake calipers.

If custom wheels are the ultimate accessory for your vehicle, custom painted calipers are the added touch of colour that attract the eye and properly highlight the style of your rims. Wheelworx Autostudio can paint your brake parts and provide your ride with a classy, alluring touch of colour. Choose an aggressive red, yellow or more unconventional colour to add sophistication and make your wheels really pop. Or black out your breaks in matte or glossy finish, for a more refined, tough look, and let your wheels speak for themselves.

If you’ve put in the creativity and effort to customize just the right look for your vehicle, make sure not to overlook the final detail to make your wheels stand out. Flaunt your style with professionally painted brake calipers from Wheelworx Autostudio

Painting your brake calipers has functional benefits in addition to upgrading your ride’s style. As calipers age, they accumulate difficult to remove brake dust and road dirt. Worse still, calipers can rust overtime. During the painting process, we’ll clean off existing grime, rust deposits and uneven surfaces in the finish, ensuring your brake parts are in the best condition possible before painting. Furthermore, a fresh coat of paint will help protect your calipers against future rust, and makes them easier to clean, keeping them looking fresh and new, longer. We can replace factory decals / logos / brand names in the process also. Call or email us for further information.

Are your brakes trying to tell you something?

Sticking Brake Pedal

If your pedal fails to release, this may indicate a faulty master cylinder.

If left too long, this condition causes serious damage, requiring expensive repairs. This can lead to total brake failure.

Noisy Brakes

Noisy brakes indicate the possibility of worn brake pads or linings.

If your car is displaying this warning sign, have it checked immediately.

Car Veers on Braking

If your car veers or pulls to one side when you apply the brakes.

It may be as simple as adjusting your tyre pressure or the problem may be with your braking system, particularly the calipers.

Locking Brakes

If your brakes grab or lock with only light pressure.

The most probable cause is grease or oil on your brake linings. There may also be loose or broken components that could cause your brakes to fail in an emergency.

Vibration (Steering wheel or vehicle)

If there is a vibration in the pedal, steering or entire vehicle when you apply the brakes.

This can indicate problems with the brake drum or rotor, a faulty steering mechanism, or other loose components. These conditions all affect the handling of your vehicle.

Pulsating Brake Pedal

If your brake pedal pulsates under foot when pressure is applied.

Most likely, the brake disc or drums are out of true alignment. This can be dangerous in wet conditions, can lead to increased wear on the braking system and uneven tyre wear.

Warning Light

If your brake warning light comes on, your brakes could be near total failure.

If your car is displaying this warning sign, get it checked immediately.

Hard Pedal

If extreme foot pressure is required to depress your brake pedal, get your brakes checked immediately.

The underlying cause could be with the power brakes, or possibly restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings. All of these problems demand immediate attention to ensure that your brakes continue to function effectively and safely.

Low Pedal

If your brakes do not activate until the brake pedal is almost touching the floor.

A quick check-up will soon identify the problem. You need your brakes to respond quickly in an emergency, so do not ignore this problem.

Spongy Brake Pedal

If your brake pedal feels spongy after heavy use, this could indicate moisture in the brake fluid.

Clean brake fluid is critical to the performance of your brakes. Moisture in the system reduces braking efficiency and can corrode brake components, potentially resulting in total brake failure.
