WARNING SIGNS



    DRAG - Sticking brakes, hot wheels or engine which seems to have lost power. Auto brakes may be failing to release; the condition can reverse itself, leaving you with no brakes at all. This would indicate brakes service is needed.

    SQUEAL - Brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise. Some noise is normal but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your brakes need of car brakes repair.

Mobile on-board disc skimming service 

The Safeline Brakes skimming process will return your brakes to factory condition. The process matches the disc to the hub. In other words, if there is the slightest run-out in the hub, Safeline Brakes will take care of this and correct it by automatically compensating for it.

Brake discs should be resurfaced when:


How Does Brake Disc Skimming Work?

The lathe works on the vehicle, by attaching itself directly to the hub. The technology includes an automatic, electronically-controlled, gyroscope system which measures run-out in the hub and corrects for this to an accuracy of 0.025mm. That’s less than the thickness of a human hair!

The automatic surface machining of a disc is completed in around 4 minutes. The complete process takes less than 10 minutes per disc.

All brake discs can be skimmed at least once. The only time your brake discs should be replaced is when they reach minimum thickness. These include Toyota, Mercedesa Benz, BMW, Nissan, Peugeot, Subaru, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Kia, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford,  Honda and many more! 

 Brake Fluid Testing

Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your automobile. A brake fluid exchange is similar to an engine oil change for your brake system. Old brake fluid can affect braking performance. SafelineBrakes' brake fluid exchange removes the old brake fluid and replaces it with clean, Indy brake fluid.Contaminated, discolored or low boiling point (high moisture content) may lead us to recommend a brake fluid change. To enable brake fluid to work it has to remain incomprehensible at the high temperatures that can be generated within the braking system – up to 260 deg C DOT4. However Brake Fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). It is vital therefore that brake fluid is tested regularly and the only sure way of testing accurately for unacceptable moisture content is by measuring the boiling point. Ask Safeline Brakes to test your brake fluid while you get your vehicle serviced.
