Your brakes are one of the most critical safety components of your vehicle, and as such, it is very essential that brakes are in perfect working order. Brakes can remain in perfect order only if you get them inspected and repaired by a professional team at the first sign of any trouble. At Sterling clutch and Brake in Auckland, we undertake clutch and brake inspection, repairs and replacement service. By watching out for a few vital signs listed here you can schedule needed repair and replacement of brakes before a brake problem gets out of hand.


Top 4 Signs Your Brake need Repairs

  1. Unusual and strange Noises: A strange squealing, clicking, or grinding and unusual sound is one of the most common indicator that there is something wrong with your brakes. This is typically an indicator built into your brakes that your brake pads are wearing down and need to be inspected and if needed be replaced. While this may seem likely a relatively minor braking problem, delaying the replacement or repairs of your brake pads could result in damage to the entire brake rotor, resulting in the costly repairs.
  2. Pulling to one Side: If your vehicle pulls to either the left or right side, then this is another common sign that there is something wrong with your vehicle’s brakes. This turning left or write can be caused by a under pressure in your tire, but this is commonly caused by issues with the brake pads or brake calliper. Repairing this problem sooner rather than later will also help you avoid damage to your car’s steering rack also.
  3. Bad Vibrations: If your brake pedal or steering wheel excessively vibrates when you put your foot on the brakes, you shouldn’t wait to visit expert mechanic. This could be a sign of warped brake rotor, which could ultimately compromise your car’s braking ability.
  4. Car takes longer than usual to come to a stop: If you find that your car is taking longer than usual time to stop when you apply brake, it indicates that the brake pads have worn out or some air has been filled in the brake fluid or there is leakage in master cylinder. So if you are in Hamilton and find that your car is not stopping when the brakes are applied then you should go for the inspection of the brake system and get brake replacement service in Hamilton if brake pads are worn out.

One of the common problems faced by the car owners is related to the clutch.  Car clutch is one of the sensitive elements in car transmission. Any rough use of car clutch increases its wear and tear and ultimately it has to be replaced. Every car owner knows that it costs a hell of amount to replace the car clutch and also leads to un-necessary harassment to its owner. If you have any problem with the clutch you can consult clutch specialist and get clutch replacement service in Auckland.

If you treat your car clutch well it can lasts up to 80,000 miles. However, if you don’t care for them , or constantly overloading your car and carrying heavy loads you may see that  sometimes your clutch lasting less than 35,000 miles or less. The car owners are ignorant about the common clutch problems and continue to drive their vehicle even if the indications of something going wrong with clutch are noticed. Some of the most common clutch problems include:

Common Clutch Problems-which you should know?

  • Wearing: One of the most common problems is the material on the disc wear out due to constant friction. One gets a creeping friction sound from disc plates when this happens.
  • Broken Cable: In case if the cable tension of push and pull is not proper it leads to clutch cable braking down.
  • Leaks: Leaks within the cylinder keep them from building up the right amount of pressure to function normally. The leak may happen from broken rubber seal or some hole in clutch plate chamber.
  • Misalignment: If there is misalignment in the clutch paddle, when you press the linkage transmits the wrong amount of force.
  • Air in the Hydraulic line: Some time air gets into the lines where fluid needs to be in order to build pressure for the clutch places to function smoothly.
  • Hard Clutch: When the clutch is shifted very little force is required but many a times you need more force than normal to press your clutch. If this happens often then that indicates a problem somewhere in the clutch system and you will need clutch replacement.

Clutch wear out also depends the way you drive the car.  We give below few points which increases clutch wear and tear.

  1. Longer you press the clutch more strain you are putting
  2. Un-necessary gear change reduces the clutch life
  3. Use of gear while parking put strain on the clutch. Use of parking brakes while parking reduces this strain.
  4. Other thing that also reduces life of clutch is driving car with clutch pedal pressed. This puts pressure on the clutch plate but doesn’t allow it to engage completely and creating more friction leading to faster wear and tear of clutch plates. It is advisable to keep your foot away from your clutch unless you are changing gears.
