Brake Callipers

Brake Callipers expertly fitted

We all know that eventually we will have to replace our car’s brake pads and shoes. When that happens, bring your car in to us and one of our expert brake technicians will examine the damage and give you a realistic quotation including parts and labour.

We guarantee that this will be much less than the price you could expect to pay at a main dealership. So whether you have a Ford, Jaguar, Audi, Seat, Suzuki, VW, Peugeot, BMW, Volvo or any other type of car, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the price.

What happens if a brake calliper fails?

Essentially, the function of brake callipers is to squeeze the brake pads against the brake discs, so that the car slows down or comes to a complete stop when you touch the brake pedal. Therefore a broken or faulty calliper means that you will not be able to stop your vehicle as quickly.

Signs of a broken or faulty brake calliper include:

  • Illumination of the brake warning light which means that brake fluid is leaking
  • Pulling to one side when you apply the brakes

It is not always necessary to replace a brake calliper. Sometimes it can start to stick because the brake fluid needs topping up. Our mechanics will be able to advise.

Why not call in for a FREE brake check?

Faulty brakes can cause serious accidents, so if your brakes don’t feel quite right you need to get them checked out. Maybe they’re not as quick to react as normal, the pedal is vibrating or they’re making an embarrassing squealing sound.

Some garages make a charge to check your brakes, but at Whitkirk Motors brake checks are FREE OF CHARGE. Our trained mechanics will inspect your brakes and advise you of any problems.

Why risk safety? Bring your car in for a free brake check today.
