Our mechanics remove the flywheel and have it machined and the dowels are removed and replaced if necessary. Also the clutch spigot bearing is replaced to get the clutch mechanism back to as new condition.

After this service the clutch kit itself is fitted, which includes a new pressure plate, clutch driven plate and the throw out bearing.

Dandenong brake service

 

When you take your vehicle into a Repco Service Centre for a brake service, our mechanics will:
• check disk brake pad and/or drum shoe pad wear levels
• replace brake and shoe pads, if they are worn past a safe level
• inspect brake fluid levels and refill if necessary
• replace system components that are not in working order
• test the vehicle out on the road to make sure newly fitted components are working properly
Further component in need that may need to be repaired in a brake service are the disc rotors. Over time disc rotors can wear unevenly, so to ensure maximum breaking efficiency they may be grinded or machined to create a smoother surface.
To inspect if your brake material is in good shape, if there are fluid leaks and to be sure on the road, book a repair at Duca Technocar online!

Brake Wear and Brake Rotor Machining

Duca Technocar mechanics can inspect your brakes and determine the cause for your brake issues efficiently. If you haven't inspected all four wheel brakes recently, usually front brakes are wearing thin and are due for a replacement. The rear brakes tend to last longer as the ones in front, which do most of the braking.

Your brake rotors can be either machined to become smooth -or- replaced with new brake rotors for factory fresh experience. Many small car brake rotors do not require a huge cash payment, so replacing them might be a smarter long term investment than polishing or "truing" the brake rotors. During a brake rotor machining a layer of metal is removed and this can cause the rotor to heat up faster, loose the smoothness faster and become warped - this may be the cause for brake vibration or wobbling when you attempt to stop your vehicle. This rotor warping issue not so noticeable on trucks with heavy duty brake rotors and they can usualy be machined once.
