At VW Services vehicle safety is paramount, which is why we recommend a brake check annually. This is usually advisable before the winter months when your car is more exposed to various road conditions. Brakes are checked at the time of service, however, if you have not had your car serviced as regularly as you should then the brake check is definitely important. Your brake fluid should be changed every 4 years, depending on the manufacturers specifications. We will check, test and advise you if your fluid needs to be replaced. A free brake safety check is available on request. During this check we will advise on brake pads, brake discs, brake linings, brake drums, brake pipes, handbrake cables and brake fluid. We will advise you on the condition of the brakes and if necessary quote for any repairs/replacements that may be needed. Call us to arrange a check.
