Mini BrakesAt MB Liverpool your local independent MINI Liverpool Specialist garage our technicians are often asked by our customers. ”How often do I need to get my brakes checked”. The answer to this is we don’t know, each year brakes are checked as part of an MOT, but driving styles and road conditions can take a toll on your MINI Cooper brakes. BMW Mini brakes are precision engineered to cope with the demands that occur as a result of our hectic lifestyles. That said if you should get dirt, grit or oil on your BMW Mini brake pads, then their effectiveness is greatly reduced. The personal service that all our customers receive at MB Liverpool means that whenever you bring your BMW Mini here for a Mini Inspection 1 service, Mini Inspection 2 service, Mini MOT or any other reason we will be happy to check the state of your BMW Mini brake pads.

Some of the same contaminants that affect your pads will also affect your BMW Mini brake discs, and as the saying goes; “it is better to be safe than sorry”. We all know that if the brake light comes on in the car then we should get it checked, but what else are signs that something may be amiss.
