We recommend giving us a call if you’re experiencing any of the issues listed above. Catching the problem early will ensure your safety and also save you money in the long run. We also offer all of the following services and repairs.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
If you notice that your brakes are squealing, this is usually an indication of brake pad problems. Completely deteriorated brake pads will produce a metal-on-metal screeching sound which is hard to miss. As soon as you hear a squealing or screeching sound, it’s time to have your brakes inspection. Driving with deteriorated brake pads causes damage to the rotors and will cost you even more money on repairs for those damaged components.
The brake rotors are attached to your vehicle’s wheels and are what connects the brake pads to the wheels. When you brake, the brake pads will grip the rotors and bring the rotors and wheel to a stop. Overtime, the rotors will begin to wear naturally just with regular use of your vehicle. The wear typically includes grooves and scratches which can be resurfaced by our experts back to top working condition.
The brake caliper is where your brake pads sit and fits around the rotors like a clamp to press the pads against the rotor every time you brake. If there is a problem with the brake caliper, uneven braking will occur and you may notice that your vehicle slides forward when you brake.
The brake hose carries brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes to lubricate parts and keep your brakes running smoothly. A crushed hose can cause very slow brakes and a leak stemming from the hoses can actually lead to brake failure. Although this is rare, the hose should be regularly inspected and replaced at the first sign of cracking.
Brake Fluid Flushes
The brake fluid keeps brake system components lubricated and helps to carry debris and build from parts. Overtime, the brake fluid will become dirty and will cause your brakes to be less effective. The lack of clean fluid can also start corroding parts and lead to damage. It is important to have a brake fluid flush when needed to ensure that fresh fluid is being transported through the brake system for maximum performance.
Anti-Lock Brake System
The Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) makes sure that the wheels don’t stop rotating while braking to avoid skidding and giving you accurate control of your vehicle. As soon as your ABS light comes on, be sure to have your system inspected by our experts.
