Brake Service, Testing & Repair

If it takes longer than usual for your car to stop, you hear grinding or feel sponginess or vibrations when braking, it is time to have your brakes inspected at a Repco Authorised Service centre.

Car brakes are exposed to powerful friction, intense heat and trapped air or moisture. The frequency of brake pad replacement depends on the climate of where you drive, the terrain you drive in (hilly or flat), the load in the vehicle or being towed such as a caravan and your driving habits. On average, brake pads should last 48,000 to 110,000 kilometres. City drivers with stop starting driving may find brake pads will not last as long as country driving.

Signs that you need your brakes inspected for repairs include:

- Sticky brake pedal
- Noisy brakes
- Swerving when braking
- Vibration when braking
- Brake warning light
- Spongy brake pedal


When it comes to brakes you shouldn’t wait until brake repairs are needed. Regular inspections like our 65 point vehicle report, included in every full car service, are important to make sure your brake system is well maintained at all times. Our technicians will advise you if they feel that servicing or repairs of your braking system is recommended before it becomes a problem.

Disc brakes, drum brakes, calipers and brake rotors, brake shoes and brake pads – whatever part of your brakes need a service our Repco Auto-Tech trained technicians can help. We understand modern braking systems, and our workshops are fully qualified to inspect, repair or replace your brake system.
