Brake Pads and Discs in Sale
Frequently asked questions
+

How much do Brake Pads and Discs cost to repair in Sale?

Brake Pad and Disc replacement prices will vary depending on make and model, part quality and which components are being replaced. Our overall average repair price is around £170 in Sale.
+

What is a Brake Pad?

Your car's Brake Pad works in the same way as the rubber brake blocks on a bicycle. When your car's wheels turn, a brake disc (or sometimes drum) turns with them. When you press the brake, you are pushing your car's brake pads against the discs, causing friction, and slowing the car.
+

What is a Brake Disc?

Your brake disc performs the same job, in principle, as the metal rim of a bicycle wheel under braking. When you brake, you push your brake pads against brake discs, which spin with your wheels. The friction on between the pads and discs slows the car.
+

What is the difference between Disc Brakes and Drum Brakes?

Brake discs and Brake drums perform exactly the same job: they spin with your car's wheels and, when you brake, your brake pads push against the brake discs or brake drums to slow the car. The difference is simply in the design. Drum brakes are an enclosed braking system in which brake pads (or shoes) push outwards on the inside of the drum. Disc brakes are exposed, with the pads pushing inwards against the disc.
+

Can I get Sale Brake Pad and Disc repairs at my home or work?

Yes. Many of our Sale garages are happy to come to your home or office to repair your car. Alternatively they may offer to collect your car, at little or no extra cost, across Sale.

Brake Pads and Brake Discs

A brake, or brake pad is a system that safely enables a car to stop. Brakes get rid of the kinetic energy that helps the car move, which is done by using force of friction to convert this motion of energy into heat. Your car's braking system is made up of the following components: Brake discs, which spin with your car's wheels, Brake Pads, which push on the discs to slow the car, Brake Calipers which hold, and push, the pads, Brake Lines (or 'Hoses') which carry Brake Fluid, and your Brake Master Cylinder and Servo, which work to amplify the effort you use when pushing the brake pedal. Wear or failure of any one of these components will cause braking problems, requiring repair.

Modern cars have brakes on all four wheels which are operated by a hydraulic system and are made up of several components all of which are subject to stress which could result in breakage.

The front brakes in a car are typically the ones which play the greater part in bringing a car to stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward every time the vehicle comes to a stop.

There are different systems used for braking from one car to the next which suits the needs of the vehicle size and function.

The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.

Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.

If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.

If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.

The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts. Therefore, noticing the need for a car brake repair should be obvious. But you can check faulty brake symptoms here.

What are Brake Pads?

Brake pads are a critical component of a car and a vehicle cannot come to a halt without them functioning properly. Brake pads are fitted to the brake calipers which push the pads into the brake discs which are fitted to a car wheel. When a car is moving, the pads grip the discs to slow down the wheel and thus slow the car down.

A high amount of heat energy is created from the resulting friction as explained above and over time, this will wear brake pads down.

Brake pad replacement is a common job, the work to remove a worn-down-set is not complex so if you require a brake pad replacement, the repair will not be a lengthy one.

If you would like to understand how to tell when your brakes need servicing read our dedicated guide.

What are Brake Discs?

Brake discs are fitted to the car wheel itself and they are gripped by the brake pads.

Brake discs replacement is more expensive; the parts are more expensive than pads. Often pads are placed at the same time the discs are replaced.

If a mechanic advises you to replace your brake discs, they will likely suggest replacing the pads at the same time due to a the low cost of the part and the little extra labour time needed.

Brake Pad Replacement Cost

The cost of brake pad replacement may vary depending on the car make and model. This is because there are different sizes of brake pads and the cost increases as they get bigger. For example, a Land Rover will require a bigger set of brake pads as opposed to a Fiat Punto.

We have written a brake price comparison guide if you want to learn more.

If you want a good brake pad deal, you can compare quotes from garages near you by entering you details at the top of the page.

Brake Disc Replacement Cost

If you specifically require brake disc replacement, the work will take a similar amount of time to a brake pad replacement.

However, as highlighted above, the cost will be more expensive that pads due to the parts pricing.

How to change brake pads

Brake pads are changed by removing the wheel and unscrewing the bolts which hold the part in place. The part is then simply taken off the brake caliper and a new brake pad is fitted. The same process will be applied for each of the pads that need to be replaced.

Common Brake Repairs

There are many other common issues which can arise with the braking system which are not connected to brake pads and discs issues. The brake lines are susceptible to leakage as brake fluid can leak from the system if rust is untreated. The master cylinder is also a part of the braking system which can become faulty. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.

If you want to know how brakes work, we have created a dedicated guide.

Signs of faulty brake pads and discs

There are several obvious signs that your brake pads and discs are not operating properly. If your car is taking much longer to come to a stop, it will be clear that there is a problem with your brakes.

Other signs of faulty brake pads and discs are;

  • Burning smell
  • Spongy brake pedal
  • Screeching noise
  • Grinding noise
  • Pulling to one side
  • Squeaking noise
