During our AA Car Servicings, where an AA Mobile Mechanic comes to you to service your car at a time and place of your choice, worryingly worn brake pads are one of the most common vehicle faults detected.
Firstly, make sure that your car is on level ground. It’s also best to check your vehicle’s oil levels when the car is cold. Next open your car bonnet to locate the oil dip stick, which can be found in most cars, with the exception of a few modern makes and models of cars.
What you need to do with your car depends on how long your vehicle will be left in storage. As a guideline, we've broken it down to 'up to a month', 'one to three months', and 'more than three months'.
