BRAKE & clutch SERVICES
Whether you need brake repairs or brake replacements on the Gold Coast, Aussie Brakes is more than happy to assist you with quality service you can rely on and prices that won’t break your budget.
We understand that your car’s brakes are a crucial element in keeping you safe on the road. This is why we make sure that every customer who passes through our doors leaves with a safe brake system, as well as an understanding of what repairs were undertaken and why.
We recommend that you pay us a visit every six months, or prior to embarking on a long road trip. You should also make an appointment to see us if your brake warning light comes on, if your brakes squeal or grind when pressed, if your brake pedal feels hard or spongy when you step on it, or if your car starts pulling to one side when you brake.

HOW TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
To get your car’s brakes tended to as soon as possible, we suggest you give us a call on 07 55220798 so that we can arrange a time to inspect your car – free of charge and with a further 10% discount on work undertaken if you’re a senior.
On average, you can expect to bring your cars in to our workshop (on Ern Harley Drive, Burleigh Heads) on the same day you called, but on rare occasions you might be placed on a short waiting list. Should your car require brake parts, this might add to your overall repair time, and we can also offer you a full mechanical service or log book servicing should you require it.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BRAKES?
Your car’s brake system goes far beyond the pedal you push. There are internal elements such as your brake booster, calliper, discs, drums, pads, pedals, and shoes that are incredibly important to the overall functioning of the system. You also get your master cylinder and wheel cylinder assembly, brake fluid lines and brake fluid, as well as your emergency/hand brake. There are also dozens of electrical elements (such as your ABS control unit) to consider.
Working together as part of your car’s hydraulic system, all the above-mentioned components enable your car to swerve, stop and stay in place. It all starts when you step on the brake pedal. Doing this causes brake fluid to build up and instantly transfer braking power and pressure against the brake pads, which then latch onto the brake drums to slow or stop the car. Modern cars have additional computer controlled safety features such as anti-lock brakes as well as stability control.
