Logbook Servicing

When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that will cover the cost of mechanical parts failure. This warranty is voided, however, if you do not have the vehicle periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp these servicings in your vehicle’s logbook.

Brake Care’s skilled mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook services for all:

  • Passenger vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles
  • LPG vehicles
  • Electric and Hybrid vehicles

To book your next logbook service with us, get in touch today!

Brake Services

The brakes are by far the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes are purely preventative, and well-maintained brakes are often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

Due to the incredible amount of strain that your brakes suffer every day, we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year. After all, they routinely bring tonnes of metal to a complete stop, several times a day.

As you may have guessed from our name, we’re brakes specialists here at Brake Care. As specialists, we can provide the following services:

  • Brake component machining
  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake hose repairs
  • Brake restorations

If you haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, please talk to us today!

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the network of on-board computers. Any issues with the network, or with other electrical components, is referred to under the blanket term of auto electrical.

The auto electrical network governs a multitude of systems, from monitoring fuel input and playing music, to helping with braking and transmission, even putting your vehicle into limp mode if it detects a major problem, to reduce serious damage.

Here at Brake Care our expert auto electricians can provide the following auto electrical services:

  • Full diagnostics
  • Battery test and replacement
  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Component replacement
  • Audio installations
  • Lighting upgrades
  • Accessories
  • Solar/battery systems

If your check engine light is staring up at you from the dash, talk to us today!

Air Conditioning

There’s nothing that ruins the fun of a summer drive faster than faulty air conditioning, especially if you’re stuck in traffic! Your air conditioning is unique in that it degrades more from disuse than use, as the multitude of rubber tubing and seals that make up a large part of the system dry up and crack from disuse, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your AC of its cooling power.

Here at Brake Care, our expert technicians can fully repair your aircon, starting with replacing faulty condensers and compressors, then swapping out any cracked tubing and seals, and finally re-gassing your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.

If your AC is playing up, don’t sweat it! Talk to us today!

Steering & Suspension

Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing looseness in the steering wheel and body roll through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road, so a poor suspension will dramatically increase your stopping distance.

Here at Brake Care, our skilled mechanics can provide you with the following services:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, coil springs and struts
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement
  • Lift kits and 4WD upgrades

If your teeth rattle on bumpy roads, get in touch today!

Clutch & Transmission

Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain is comprised of some of the most complicated and intricate machinery in your vehicle. Due to its sophisticated nature, any minor flaws or faults can quickly escalate into some of the most costly repairs.

If you notice a clicking noise at full turn, are having difficulty changing gears, or notice a clunking or grinding noise when you do, or a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.

Brake Care’s skilled mechanics can provide the following drivetrain services:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual gearbox servicing and repairs

If you’ve noticed any of the warning signs mentioned above, contact to us today!

Radiators & Cooling Systems

If your radiator is malfunctioning, it can lead to a host of problems, reducing engine power, fuel efficiency, and even engine lifespan, as leaking coolant damages the head gasket, and expansion caused by overheating damages the pistons and cylinder heads. If cooling system issues are left for long enough, it can render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a second-hand car.

Brake Care’s experienced mechanics can provide the following cooling system repairs:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

If your vehicle is leaking coolant or running hot, get in touch today!
