  • Leaks in the sealed system.

At Hyde Automotive we will complete your brake repairs using only premium products, to guarantee that you get the maximum driving distance out of your pads with less noise. Cheap brake pads last only a third as long, are noisy, prone to squealing and cover the wheels in brake dust. When it comes to your vehicles brakes, it pays to get the best quality possible for your budget. It’s just not worth compromising on and will save you from trouble in the long run.

It is also important to check your brake fluid. We understand the significance that the impact of different driving styles can have on its longevity. If you live in a hilly area, or are often in peak hour traffic, constant braking can cause brake fluid to boil and thin out. This is commonly referred to as ‘Brake Fade’. If this has happened to you, your brake fluid will need to be replaced.

Brake fluid also absorbs water, when it gets into your car’s braking system it can rust everything – a great reason to replace it regularly!

We recommend this replacement should be carried out every 2 years at a minimum.
