Brakes pad and shoe replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you’ll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it’s too late and you’re ruining your rotors or drums!
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle’s wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheel to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a ‘like-new’ condition, reducing squealing and wobbling.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake. A leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don’t need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake fluid flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is import to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid.
Anti-lock brake system
Anti-Lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensures that the wheels don’t stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, give us a call and we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
