Getting your brakes checked in London Ontario


The leading cause of traffic accidents is brake failure. WOW!

And brake failure is nearly always preventable. Stop worrying about potential failures and enjoy peace of mind. Ricky Ratchets auto Repair is a brake specialist.

Come in for a brake inspection. We will check

Pads and shoes for wear
Drums and rotors for wear
Wheel cylinders and calipers for leaks
Hydraulic lines and hoses for leaks, kinks and blockages
Fluid in the master cylinder for level and condition.
Checking your brake system regularly will often save you in the long run. Replacing worn pads before they damage the disks or drums is a modest cost. If you wait until your car is sounding like a streetcar, you will likely have more extensive repairs and a higher cost.

If any work is necessary, we will give you a choice of parts. A better grade of materials (pads for example) may be one of the best bargains around. They will last longer and perform better then standard grades. You are in control. Both here at Ricky Ratchets and on the road when the need arises.

Say you saw this blog and get $50.00 off your front or rear brakes .
