Are your brakes in good condition? 

Brake repairs are crucial for vehicle safety and performance. This blog post explores the various types of brake repairs that your vehicle might need throughout its lifespan.

Brake Pad Replacement

  • The Basics: Brake pads press against the brake rotor to stop your vehicle. They wear down over time and require replacement.
  • Symptoms: Squealing noises or increased stopping distance.

Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement

  • Resurfacing: Smoothing out the rotors can be an option if they aren’t excessively worn.
  • Replacement: Severely worn or damaged rotors need to be replaced for effective braking.

Brake Caliper Maintenance

  • Function: Calipers squeeze the brake pads against the rotors.
  • Repairs: May involve lubrication, replacement of caliper pins, or the caliper itself if it sticks or leaks.  

Brake Fluid Change

  • Importance: Brake fluid is essential for transferring force into pressure to stop the car.
  • Service: Replacing old fluid can prevent brake failure and maintain system integrity.



Brake Line Repair

  • Issue: Brake lines can corrode or leak, compromising brake performance.
  • Solution: Replacing damaged lines to ensure reliable braking.

Understanding the different types of brake repairs can help you keep your vehicle’s braking system in optimal condition. Regular inspections and maintenance are essential for ensuring safety on the road.
