Upon your arrival at Safety Brake & Clutch, your brake discs and pads are inspected to determine the extent of any wear and tear, and whether brake repair or replacement is required.

If you know you know your way around the mechanics of a car, you’ll know that older model cars’ back wheels use a different system for stopping your car. This is called the drum brake system and it works on the premise of using friction to stop your car as well, but just using different components: a drum (instead of a disc) and a component called a shoe (instead of a pad). When you step on your brake pedal, the shoe expands outwards to stop the drum from rotating (whereas the pad presses inwards against the brake disc).
