At Blue Toro you’ll always speak to a real vehicle mechanic, not a receptionist. We have service areas across the country, but your mechanic is local, and knows just where to find you.
Blue Toro Mobile Mechanics perform mobile car repairs on all brake repairs or replacements. Whether your brakes are grinding, squealing, vibrating, pulling to one side, has a low brake pedal, handbrake is coming up high, or simply worn out we can help.
Blue Toro will replace your brake pads if they are below minimum thickness. If the disc brake rotor surface is not true, we will measure the disc brake rotor thickness. If it is above minimum specification we will machine the disc rotors. If it is equal or below minimum specification we will replace the rotors with new ones. If brake calipers are worn or sticky or you have uneven wear on the brakes we can also overhaul or replace the brake caliper if needed.
Once all parts are fitted we will bleed the brake system and make sure the brake fluid is at the correct level.
Blue Toro can repair or replace the brake pads, brake shoes, master cylinder, disc rotors, brake drums, brake caliper, wheel bearing, wheel cylinders and brake line/ hose with our mobile car repair service.
Examples of common brake problems:
High-pitched squeal: If the squealing stops when you brake, this means the brake pads are worn.
Metal-on-metal sound when braking: The brake pads or shoes are completely worn away. Driving is now damaging your cars rotors or drums and reducing your braking performance.
Brake pedal is soft: Or, if it gets harder when pumped, your brakes need ‘bleeding’ to get air bubbles out of the brake lines or brakes require adjusting or fluid flushing.
Brake pedal slowly sinks to the car floor: Requires a new brake master cylinder.
Car pulls to one side when braking: Indicates insufficient hydraulic pressure or a sticking brake.
Pulsing when braking at high speeds: This indicates warped brake rotors.
Smoking brakes and burnt rubber smell: This usually indicates a stuck brake caliper, wheel cylinder or hand brake cable. This can also happen if you drive with the hand brake on.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
We can provide a registration safety e-check with your service and lodge it direct with the motor registry.
You should service your car based on the time or distance travelled since your last service
(whichever occurs first). Remember too that varying driving conditions may also affect the frequency of your service requirements, e.g. city versus highway driving, carrying heavy loads.
Delaying your service is a false economy.
Not servicing your vehicle according to the manufacturers recommendations impacts the performance of your vehicle and often causes greater wear and tear, costing you more in repairs in the long run.
