Car Brakes

If you’re off on a long journey or simply want reassurance about the condition of your brakes, get in touch with the team at John Cooper. We’ll be happy to do a full check of your car’s braking system to ensure that you and your family are safe on the road.

Modern brake systems are made up of several components any of which can become worn or faulty over time so if you notice any of the signs below, be sure to bring your car into John Cooper in Derby, so that we can do a full check of your vehicle’s braking system. If it needs repairs, you can be assured that our experienced team only use the highest quality components, giving you peace of mind knowing that you will be getting optimum performance and safety from your brakes.

There are various signs which you should be aware of:

  1. A brake-pad warning light – this is a pretty obvious sign that one of your brake pads is worn but not all cars are equipped with this light.
  2. A loud screeching – a screeching or grinding sound is very likely to mean that your brake pads have worn out.
  3. Pulling to one side – if your car is pulling to one side, it could be that the brake pads on one side of the car have worn out causing an imbalance.
  4. Bad vibrations – if your brake pedal vibrates when you press on it, it could mean that your brake pads have warped from too much heat or that the brake discs are damaged.

John Cooper has built up a solid reputation for quality MOT and repairs for all makes and models of cars, commercial vehicles and motorbikes and also for our specialist work on BMW, Mercedes and other high-end marques and performance services. We have a committed, professional team of technicians based at our clean, modern workshop in Derby.
