Give the team at Affordable New Tyres and Mechanical a call on or to book your vehicle in for any of our brake and clutch services.
Your brakes and clutch are heavy-wear items that will need attention every few services to ensure their safe operation. As all our mechanics have over ten years’ experience in the field, we can accurately detect the fault in your brake or clutch systems to ensure we fix the problem the first time. If you find that your clutch isn’t ‘biting’ correctly, or your stopping distances deteriorating, we recommend you call us to book your car in for a service at your earliest convenience.
A road test is performed on all vehicles that we service, and checking for break wear is a vital part of our road test. If your car is frequently squealing when stopping, or your brake pedal has a lot of play or fade in it, we advise you to bring the car to us as soon as possible, as worn brake systems can prove catastrophic. We can work on all areas of the brake system, including fluid, pads and discs. We’ll always try our hardest to offer multiple options to suit different budgets and driving applications.
When assessing your brake rotors for wear, we’ll inform you whether machining, or outright disc replacement is a more financially viable solution. All brake machining is done in-house by the same person who assesses your brakes. We differ from many of our competitors by doing it this way, and we feel that the best person to machine your brakes is the person who has physically operated them during a test drive.
We pride ourselves on being able to service vehicles of all shapes and sizes, so we maintain close relationships with our suppliers to bring you products that suit your needs at a competitive price.
If you’d like to retain your warranty and keep the original clutch that you’re used to, we can install OEM clutches when required, or install aftermarket clutches of various materials to suit your budget or driving style. We can supply and install comfortable clutches for easy town driving, as well as twin and triple-plate clutches for performance oriented driving. Similarly, we also offer heavy-duty clutches for towing.
Custom-Made Clutches for Towing:
Towing large loads frequently can adversely affect the lifespan of your clutch and differential. If you find that you burn through clutches frequently, we can have a heavy-duty clutch custom made for your vehicle. We consider your typical towing loads and outsource a clutch to be custom made to suit your needs, minimising the wear on your driveline and reducing the amount of times you need to have a clutch replaced. Please get in touch with us for a consultation on a custom-made clutch.
