Noisy Car Brakes-Nice Red Citroen DS3 Pulls in with a Grinding Brakes Problem?

Post Updated 6th Jan 2014

I was surprised to see this nice red car with Noisy Car Brakes   .

Been the owner of a busy garage has many” ups and downs”. One of the more nicer and pleasant aspects of the job is to see the the number of different cars and car models that would appear in any given week.

This past week has seen cars as diverse as a Rolls Royce Wraith ( which was one of only 220 cars produced) to a Wolsey Hornet Mini from the late sixties, not counting the everyday cars such as Ford Fiestas and VW Golfs.Noisy Car Brakes Early on in the week we had a car made by Citroen, the DS3 call in to us with Noisy Car Brakes. The was in my favorite  colour a very bright red, ( I love red cars). We put the citroen car with the Noisy Car Brakes on a ramp and removed all the wheels to check the Noisy Car Brakes, and sure enough the front pads were worn down to the metal and the friction from having “metal to metal” had also damaged the front discs. The rear brakes were cleaned and checked and were good for further use.

We contacted the customer and was given the go ahead to replace the brakes

Because we are a Unipart Car Care Centre (UCCC) we fitted Unipart Car Brakes , this meant that the customer was getting good quality brakes with a nation wide guarantee. The Noisy Car Brakes job was completed and the customer went on his way, but I took a couple of pictures because I am a great fan of the Citroen DS3.The colours are very bright and modern looking with a choice of 11 colours and four different roof colours, you can even have colour coded alloy wheels and also different carpet designs.There is also a sports version known as the D-Sport which comes with Blue-tooth and climate control. The car also include 17 inch alloy wheels, the one I looked at came with Yokohama tyres and looked great. They also come out with additional body modifications and really look very stylish.

Noisy Car Brakes DS3 brakes” new and old disks”

This car in my opinion is a great tribute to the New Citroen DS3 designers, who had to compete with the BMW Mini and the great little Fiat 500.

More reading…

The DS3 is the first in a range of very different Citroen models that put the emphasis on style and personality, along with strong performance and driver appeal. With its stylish look and compact size, it’s easy to see why so many comparisons have been drawn with the popular MINI and Fiat 500. msn cars

And also..

“The engine combines strong low-rev performance – 110bhp at 3600rpm and 199lb ft at 2000rpm, enough for a sub-10.0sec 0-60mph time – with a claimed 62.8mpg (combined cycle) and 118g/km of CO2 emissions, which sees annual road tax costing just £20…”EVO

Warped Brake Discs-Why do your Brake Discs Go Out of Shape?

Warped Brake Discs

warped brake discs; warping  is a common problem

Most people know what a brake disc is. Of course, they learn this through experience gained throughout their motoring life. The brake discs are known in America as “Brake Rotors”, I say this

warped brake discs

This car came to us with a terrible brake grinding noise, caused by Worn out brakes Discs and pads ready to be replaced

because of my American readers. Just in case they dont know what I am referring to.

The discs are the large metal discs that you see on most cars. Hence, when the wheels are removed. For this reason, there job is to stop the car when the brakes are applied. Thus, they are grabbed by the Car Brake Pads. At great pressure to stop the car. This action causes friction and wear on the discs. Consequently, with constant use and heat build up.

warped brake discs

replacing warped brake discs

Over time the Disc Brakes will slowly wear down. Most manufactures of these discs recommend a minimum thickness of wear. When your brakes are examined by a competent Autocentre. Then the discs will be measured and if they are below the thickness limits. Therefore, customer will then be advised?Hopefully the warped brake discs will be changed.

Discs come in all types of designs. Although the discs that fit the regular family saloon car. Hence, are usually of the conventional solid steel discs type. Although, many cars are now coming out on vented discs. This was an improvement to help dissipate the high amount of heat that the discs generate in heavy usage. In my opinion these vented discs wear more quickly than the solid discs, but do not warp as much.

Warped Brake Discs

The warped brake discs will go out of shape for many reasons , but the main reason through what I call “normal wear and tear” , this is caused by the exposed discs coming into contact with water, during in heavy rain, the discs constantly heat up and cool down when in contact with the water. This year has been particularly bad for warped brake discs replacements due to our record wet year here in the UK. The discs produce a high spot which over time causes them to develop a “high spot” and eventually the discs will warp.

This warped brake discs can be felt through the brake pedal when you are pressing the brakes and will get worse, making the driving feel uncomfortable. If this is not seen to it is possible that the discs can break up into pieces, often causing distress to the driver.

Some sportier car models have to have perforated discs fitted as an added bonus in keeping the discs cool when heavy braking and have to be re-fitted with the same type of discs, discs are very important and can not be messed about with, except for upgrades.

Warped Brake Discs How do I look after my brake discs ?

The answer really is to have your car regularly maintained. Most good Autocentres will offer their customers a free brake check. Also you should have your car serviced at least once a year, this will include your brake check and any problems will be noted and presented to you as a recommendation. It is then up to you to have the problems fixed before you run into more problems. I have noticed recently that the customers with brake problems are the ones that did not find time to have their car serviced, and the cost doubles because of the extra problems that a set of worn out pads would have cost if discovered on a service.

Failing Brakes-Lack Of Car Servicing Could lead To problems with your cars brakes ?

Failing Brakes

Many cars are now having The experience of driving your car along the road only to find that when you apply the Failing Brakes, you hear a tremendous “grinding”noise problems

We are now finding that we are seen an increase in drivers calling into our garage. Thus, with Failing Brakes. Consequently,  that are rattling and banging. Many of our customers are lady drivers (about 60%

we estimate). The experience of driving your car along the road . Hence, only to find that when you apply the Failing Brakes. Then you can hear a tremendous “grinding”noise. As a result, coming from your car. This can be a harrowing and frightening experience.

Failing Brakes

Examining discs and pads

 

When this happens. So, all the customer wants to do is stop the car. Then, get it to a garage as soon as possible. These days as well as the noise, then a warning light will illuminate on the dash-board. Making the experience twice as daunting.

For some strange reason. The cost of the repairs to repair to them does not seem to be a problem. Because, this important part of the Failing Brakes must be fixed at all cost.

This is the bit that I don’t understand ! We find that the main reason for the Failing Brakes, and becoming beyond the stage of safety levels (when the pads are completely worn down and they become metal on metal with the Discs), is mainly because the vehicle had not been serviced the year before.

By skipping a service usually for financial reasons. You will be storing trouble up for the future. Especially, with problems with Failing Brakes. This is truly false economy.

We find the cost of the repairs is probably twice the cost as it would be if the repairs were picked up at an MOT test or for the vehicle servicing. When servicing and we find that the  Brake Pads are getting low, then we report back to the client with an advisory and the parts will be changed on the service making the car safe again, and up to scratch. If the owner does not have their vehicle serviced and the Failing Brakes are neglected, then the problem of low pads will then be spread to the other parts, namely the brake

discs, and then you could end up with seized up brake calipers, and leaking brake cylinders and damaged ABS warning wires.

Failing Brakes problems would have been avoided.

One lady customer brought her BMW Mini in to us with Failing Brakes problems. When we examined them , the car required discs and pads on the front and pads on the rear. The lady could not understand this as she said that we had serviced the car a couple of months previously.

When we checked the records on our computer system, the last service was carried out 18 months ago, she had missed her annual service completely, needless to say that she apologised, paid her bill and went on her way. We do send out reminders to our customers, but it had slipped her mind.

The invoice was twice the amount as it would have been if the pads had been picked up on a standard service. We do understand that in such bad financial times, some people just can not afford for servicing doing but many Autocentres like ourselves in Halifax, will carry out brake service for as little as £29.90, then at least you will know that your brakes are safe.

 

Car Disk Brakes-A Brief Explanation about what they do and what they are?

 Post Updated 31st Dec 2013

Whatever car you drive you are likely to have Car Disk Brakes

Car Disk Brakes

Whatever car you drive a perhaps it is a small, medium,or a large 4×4 car even a motorbike or a pick up truck, you will probably have Car Disk Brakes fitted as standard on your vehicle. The

Car Disk Brakes

BMW brake discs just fitted

Car Disk Brakes are one of the most important recent inventions on the modern car. Even though you never think about your Car Disk Brakes, they are probably one of the most important functions on your vehicle. Though there are two or three different types of car brakes, the drum (used mostly on the rear brakes) and the disks, the Car Disk Brakes are the most commonly used on today’s modern cars. Disc brakes are far better and much more efficient than drum brakes because of their more modern design and more powerful stopping ability. Disc brakes are a success story from the world of motor racing and have been passed onto the modern cars of to day.

What are your disc brakes

For any easy explanation, Car Disk Brakes consist of two pads Made from a non-asbestos material that grips the rotating metal disk. The metal disks, are fitted at the end of an axle. When you press the brake pedal inside the car, the pressure is transferred from the pedal to the discs thus stopping the car.You control the braking power. When you push on the brake pedal, the brake pads come together on the disk, forcing it to stop turning which will cause your vehicle to slow down and eventually stop.

 


How To Keep your Disk Brakes in top condition.

Whatever type of type of vehicle you may drive, you will probably need to consider having your brakes serviced and brakes maintenance or replacement of your brake parts , at some point along the way. It is important to have the thickness of your brake pads checked by a competent person preferably a qualified mechanic . If your pads are thin or even down to the bare metal, they can cause damage to your disc brakes which will increase your bill due to disc damage due to” metal on metal”.

 

Also check your brake fluid

You should always keep an eye on your cars brake fluid level in the cylinder top up tank under the bonnet. This top up is usually done on a regular service or brake service, by a competentAutocentrein your neighborhood.

Replacing the break pads and the disc brakes can be fairly easily on your own but it is worth noting that the brake discs and pads are becoming much more sophisticated on the cars of today. So Don’t hesitate to get help if you are unsure and once again it may be wise to let your localUnipart centre to do your brakes professionally.

What are the signs of brake disc damage ?

There are many ways your break disks will warn you of impending damage. The first experience that our customers have is a complaint of a “grinding” sound. This is usually the “metal on Metal” that I described earlier. The Car Disk Brakes can also warp, scar or crack , due to heat that is caused by heavy excessive braking. Once again these signs are picked up in routine brake servicing.

Are there different disc brake designs?

The answer to this is “YES”, these days, the designs of the Car Disk Brakes vary greatly. Some are made in classic solid steel, but others have special drilled out sections that allows the built up of heat to dissipate, keeping the discs cooler, once again a development from racing car design. These drilled out steel discs help prolong the life of the Car Disk Brakes because they reduce built-up heat and prevent the possibility of warping and enhance the cars stopping power. The creative designs are endless and each design has a different effect on the performance of your braking system.

How Brake Pads Work-Understand What your BRAKE PADS Do

Post Updated 27th Dec 2013

How Brake Pads Work;Unipart brake pads

Here at Pellon Autocentre we use top quality brake parts, we use  because it gives us peace of mind that we are fitting a top class product and we know that our customers wont have problems with their new brake pads.

How Brake Pads Work

Your brake pads are one of the most important part of your brakes, as they are the component that makes contact to and applies the pressure and friction to your cars brake discs. This is the pressure and friction that is applied to the brake discs and this is what slows and stops your car. Once your brakes are applied the pressure from the master cylinder stops the wheels from turning and the car stops. The role of How Brake Pads Work is really very simple, but the construction of the brake pads is not.

Brake pads were once made out of asbestos when I was a young mechanic, but because of the cancer causing materials in the pads, new compounds had to be developed and nowadays brake pads are made from a mixture of metallic shavings or non-metallic, organic materials, depending on the manufacturers own compound mixes.

The brake pads are compressed onto your brake discs when you press the brake pedal. The discs are fitted directly to the wheel hubs and the axle, on applying the brake pads friction is forced upon the disc causing the wheels to slow and then stop depending on the pressure applied to the pedal. The discs work in unison with the brake pads in order to stop your vehicle.

When will I need new brake pads or discs?

There are many different warning signs that your vehicle will give you before your brakes may reach the point of potential failure or extensive repair. The first thing to say is that you should always have your car regularly serviced, including your braking system. This will stop problems before they occur.

Here’s some other things that you should look out for.

Watch out for your brake warning light coming on when you are driving?

How Brake Pads Work

Check or have your garage check your brake fluid level?
Can you hear a grinding sound or a squealing sound when you apply the brake pedal?
Can you feel a vibration or some sponginess in the brake pedal when it is pressed?
Can you feel your vehicle steer or pull to one side when you apply your brakes?

All these symptoms are the most common signs that are a potential brake system How Brake Pads Work problems and they should be looked at immediately, as they have the potential to cause a lethal accident. Brakes are there to stop your car and they should not be treated lightly, if you have them inspected at regular intervals you will reduce the chances of future problems.

Brake servicing in Halifax UK-Tips about BRAKES SERVICING for better car safety

Post Updated 20th Dec 2013

Brake servicing in Halifax UK;Regular brakes servicing is very important

Brake servicing in Halifax UK

Brake servicing in Halifax UK

Brakes and tyres are the most important most important parts to look after on your car . We should have our brakes checked at regular intervals, either on the cars routine service schedule or a stand alone brake service.

The most common time we find for brake failure is on the MOT test. We find that when this happens the brakes are in pretty poor condition.Brake servicing in Halifax UK is imperative for our local motorists. Most motorists though ignore my advice, and do not know that they have a problem with their brakes until they hear the grinding of metal to metal as their pads wear out and touch the metal brake discs, making the all too familiar horrible grinding noise. Please remember to have your brakes checked at regular intervals, this saves a big bill later when one problem runs to another, and could become very expensive.

Another problem the motorist has is that there Car Brakes wear out very slowly. I am talking in particular about things like brake hoses and brake cylinder rubbers. Both these items are made of a rubber based material and eventually they will rot away by the brake fluid. This rotting away would be noticed by our mechanics when having a Brake servicing in Halifax UK, on a routine service or MOT test as the leaking of the fluid is easily detectable. This can be very dangerous when the hose goes, as your brake fluid will be lost and with it your inability to stop the car.

As said above, brakes including the “metal pipes” that carry the brake fluid round the brake system are not checked out, there is a possibility that they may leak causing brake failure.

Brake servicing in Halifax UK

BMW mini 2 having its brakes checked out, Brake servicing in Halifax UK alerted the owner of this particular car had to have new discs and pads all the way round, because of lack of servicing.

Luckily for us in the UK we have the MOT test on an annual basis and the test will pick up many faults, but it is a very wise motorist that has their Disc Brakes brakes serviced at regular intervals.

Motorists are wise to have a brakes service carried out after Winter time. Winter is the time that you will use the brakes twice as much as in Summer time, because of motoring in very bad conditions. Another reason to have a brakes service is if you live in a hilly area, obviously you will be using the brakes much more when going down steep hills and taking sharp bends, probably using the brakes twice as much as on regular flat roads such as in Linconshire.

“Unipart2 replacement parts for your brakes servicing

Your brake pads usually need changing when there is about 25% of the pads left on and callipers have a system of measurements to determine how thick they are and whether or not they may need changing. Autodata gives us the correct thickness the pads should be before being replaced.

We here at Pellonautocentre offer a free brake check or can carry out a Brake servicing in Halifax UK for £29.90. If any brake work is required we can offer our customers a courtesy car, or give them a lift and back .We can offer online booking for MOT TESTS

HONDA ACCORD EXECUTIVE 1979 ONWARDS

The reason for showing this video. Hence, is to show our customers at Pellon Autocentre, here in Halifax UK.So what is involved in repairing their cars brake shoes. One of our loyal customers, owns a Honda Accord, 1980 model. The car is in great condition. Of course, cars can break at any given time. Thus this is what happened to Joe.

Joe, had been experiencing squeaking noises coming from the back of his car. Especially when he braked hard. Of course, the noise started off at a low pitch. But the noise became much loud with time.

Brake shoes were always known to be noisy. Fortunately, shoes are being replaced with discs and pads, even on the rear of cars. In my opinion discs and pads are much safer and efficient, than brake shoes. We got Joe to bring us the Handa in. Naturally, we put the car on a ramp and removed all the wheels, to check the condition of all the Hondas brakes.

It is no good just checking the rear brakes, we always check out all the cars brakes.

Replacing Drum Brake Shoes

Sure enough, the rear shoes were well worn and covered in brake dust. The shoes on the rear do not work as hard as the front brakes. But like anything else they do need changing in time.

This video explains about the things that we have to do to replace the brake shoes. Joe had his shoes replaced and went on his way yet another satisfied customer.
Well here it is kids another offering of my most popular subject to date, drum brake servicing. I know it’s long but I’ve put a few extras in it for you that I hope you will like and will help you with other things besides just replacing the shoes. Feel free to comment on anything I might have missed, I know I misspoke on a couple of occasions in the video, forgive me as sometimes my mouth says different things than my brain is thinking.

Apply a small amount of grease to the two 8 x 1.25 mm bolts and use these bolts to remove the stubborn Brake Drum. Two turns at a time. You may want to tap with a Rubber Hammer to help release the Brake Drum. After the Brake Drum is removed, Study the REAR Brake Anatomy.
