Brake Friction

Brake Discs

Brake discs work in conjunction with other components to ensure that you can bring your vehicle to a stop. They usually do not need as much changing as brake pads, this depends on driving conditions and driving style, but it is just as important to have them checked out and if they need changing, have them replaced as soon as possible. Each make and model has its’ specific components and James Walsh’s can help you get the correct discs for you. Trusted brands sold at James Walsh’s include Mintex and Borg & Beck, Blue Print. Call (056) 772 2810.

Brake Drums

Brake drums work on the same principle as brake discs, shoes press against a spinning surface. In the breaking system of your vehicle, that surface is called a drum. Many cars have drum brakes on the rear wheels and brake discs on the front. Trusted brands sold at James Walsh’s include Mintex, Borg & Beck & Blue Print. To find out more call us on (056) 772 2810.

Brake Shoes

Brake shoes and brake drums go hand in hand. Trusted brands sold at James Walsh’s include Mintex, Borg & Beck & Blue Print.

Brake Pads

Brake pads are absolutely essential to the efficient working of any vehicle. Brake pads are the component that applies pressure and creates friction to the brake rotors, and this stops the wheels. How long should my brake discs last? Well it can differ with every vehicle and also depend on the way it is driven, where it is driven and, of course, how often it is driven. Signs that you need to replace your brake pads include loud screeching, warning light on the dash of your vehicle, your vehicle vibrates and by a visual check. We have access to brake pads of the highest standard and sell trusted brands such as Mintex, Borg & Beck & Blue Print, so call us on (056) 772 2810 for all your brake pad needs.

Wheel Speed Sensor

The wheel speed sensor is attached to the hub of a drive tire and is responsible for monitoring multiple vehicle functions such as traction control, anti-lock braking systems, and obviously, the vehicle’s speed. To make further enquiries please call us on (056) 772 2810.
