Brake Disk Resurfacing and Skimming


Squeal or Shriek?

Do your brakes judder or feel spongy when you put your foot down? Do they make a squeal or shriek? If you’ve been experiencing any of these issues, there’s no need to go to the expense of buying replacement brake discs. Instead, simply bring your car in to Whitkirk Motors. We have invested in a state-of-the-art brake disc skimming machine which will resurface your existing discs at a fraction of the cost.

Keep brakes running smoothly

Brake discs should not need to be replaced until they reach a minimum thickness. In most cases brakes are subject to uneven wear and tear due to rust, friction and heat. Resurfacing and aligning the brake discs correctly will solve any problems and give smooth, even braking for a further several hundred miles.

Brake disc skimming is a quick and easy process. There is no need to dismantle the braking system as the discs can be resurfaced whilst they are still on the vehicle – saving you both time and money.

When do I replace my Brake Pads or Shoes?

Your vehicle’s brakes are checked as part of your annual MOT Test, but you should bring your car in to Whitkirk Motors if:

  • You begin to hear a squealing noise when braking
  • You’ve done a visual check and the lining is only around 3mm thick
  • You do a lot of city driving where you are constantly stopping and starting
  • You’ve done more than 12,000 miles
