Frequently asked questions about brake disc replacement & repairs in Cardiff
Read our answers to questions about brake disc replacement costs, symptoms and more.
What does a brake disc replacement in Cardiff involve?
- Mechanic will inspect the brake discs.
- If necessary, the brake discs will be replaced along with new brake pads.
- Mechanic will check the brake system and, if deemed safe, will do a test drive.
What are the symptoms of worn brake discs?
- If you experience vibration whilst braking.
- If the car start to pull to one side under braking.
- If you notice (or are advised on an MOT) that the disc surfaces have developed scores, pit holes or cracks.
Please note, if you see a surface of fine rust on a mild steel disc after rain, this is quite normal and will rub off once the brakes are used a couple of times.
How long does it take to replace brake discs and pads?
On average, brake discs and pads replacement times can range from around 1 hour to 2 hours with an average of around 1 hour. The time that the job takes will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
How do I know if my brakes need to be replaced?
Brake discs will gradually become thinner due to the friction between them and the brake pads.
This wear and tear can be hastened by inappropriate brake pads being fitted, worn brake pads and excessive hard braking. If you can see a rough surface you brake pads will feel it! It will be like running the pads over a cheese grater and they will wear out very quickly!
If the brake discs have worn out prematurely or if you are experiencing trouble under braking, it is advisable to seek the help of an expert to investigate the problem and, if necessary, replace the discs as soon as possible. Driving with brakes that do not function properly can, of course, lead to dangerous situations on the road.
Brake discs are supplied and fitted in axle pairs (i.e. front or rear). It is equally important to have new brake pads fitted at the same time otherwise any wear pattern on the pads from the previous discs could severely reduce the contact area between the two. This is so important that no mechanic would consider doing otherwise.
Should you replace brake pads and discs together?
Yes, if you are told the brake discs need replacing then this will need to be done in conjunction with the brake pads. If it is has been professionally diagnosed that just the brake pads are worn and have caused no damage to the discs then it is not always needed to replace the discs at the same time. At ClickMechanic we offer brake discs and pads replacements as well as brake pads replacements. If you are unsure which brake parts need replacing then book with a professional mechanic who can check the brakes and advise on next steps. If you experience any untoward characteristics in your braking, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle.
Are worn brake discs an MOT failure?
Yes, brake disc surfaces can develop scores, pit holes or cracks and can lead to a condition in which they are seriously weakened. If this impedes with the safe operation of the brakes an MOT failure may follow.
