Brake System

Brake Inspection

The brake system in your vehicle is intricate, complex, and extremely important. It is comprised of many parts and operates using a hydraulic system with brakes on all four wheels. You should always have your brakes inspected during routine maintenance service as brake replacement depends on a variety of factors.

Brake replacement warning signs
  • Difficulties braking
  • Squeaking and squealing when braking
  • Grinding when braking
  • Car jerking when braking
  • Brakes resistant to braking
  • Leaking brakes
  • Pulling from left or right when braking

What We Do

Brake Fluid Change

Clean brake fluid plays a vital role in internally lubricating brake components and allowing your vehicle to stop efficiently, especially under heavy loads or high temperatures. Over time, brake fluid absorbs moisture through microscopic pores in the hoses’ and seals. Brake fluids saturated with water renders your brakes ineffective.

Brake Pads

Brake pads are a key component in your vehicle’s braking system. As the brakes are applied their contact with the brake rotors are what allow you to stop. Over time, this interaction causes the brake pads to gradually wear down, reducing your braking ability. We recommend replacing your brake pads after they have worn less than 1/8th of an inch, often signaled by a squealing wear indicator embedded in the brake pad.

Brake Repair

There’s no underestimating the importance of your brakes when it comes to safety. Brakes work by transmitting friction to your wheels via hydraulic force. Properly functioning brakes are important, especially in the rainy season. If the brake pedal is pressing close to the automobile floor, or if you hear squealing while braking, we are here to help.

Brake Calipers

Brake calipers are a vital part of your vehicle’s braking system. The calipers squeeze the brake pads against the surface of the brake rotor to slow or stop the vehicle. When you step on the brake, brake fluid from the master cylinder creates hydraulic pressure on one or more pistons in the brake caliper, forcing the pads against the rotor.

Faulty brake system can possibly cause an accident, endangering your life and those of others. Let us inspect your brake system so you can drive safely.
