Brake Repair & Maintenance Services

Inspection & Diagnosis

A thorough examination of the entire braking system to identify any issues, including brake pad wear, fluid leaks, or other problems.

Anti-lock (ABS) Brake Systems

Diagnosis, repair, and maintenance of anti-lock brake systems, which are designed to prevent wheel lockup during hard braking, enhancing control and safety.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement

Brake pads are replaced in disc brake systems, where they create friction against brake rotors to stop the vehicle. Brake shoes, on the other hand, are components in drum brake systems and are replaced when they wear down, as they create friction against the inside of brake drums to slow down the vehicle.

Resurfacing / Machining

The process of resurfacing or machining brake rotors or drums to restore their smooth and even surface, improving braking performance and reducing noise.

Brake Hose Replacement

Replacing damaged or deteriorated brake hoses, which carry brake fluid between various components of the braking system.

Brake Line Replacement

Replacement of brake lines, which transport brake fluid throughout the system, when they are damaged or corroded.

Master Cylinders

Diagnosis, repair, or replacement of the master cylinder, a critical component that generates hydraulic pressure for brake operation.

Wheel Cylinders

Maintenance, repair, or replacement of wheel cylinders, commonly found in drum brake systems, which apply pressure to the brake shoes.

Parking Brakes

Inspection, adjustment, repair, or replacement of parking brake systems to ensure they function correctly.

Power Boosters

Diagnosis and maintenance of power brake boosters, which assist in applying the brakes with less effort from the driver.

Caliper Replacement

The brake caliper houses the brake pads and plays a vital role in braking. Issues with the caliper can result in uneven braking and potential loss of control, especially in adverse weather conditions. Contact us promptly to address such concerns.

Brake Repair Warning Signs

  • Warning Lights: The ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) or brake warning lights on your dashboard may illuminate, indicating a problem with the braking system.

  • Squealing or Screeching: AnyHigh-pitched squealing or screeching sounds when you apply the brakes can be an indicator that your brake pads have worn down and need replacement.
  • Vibrations or Pulsations: Vibrations or pulsations in the brake pedal or steering wheel when you brake, it might suggest warped brake rotors. This can affect braking performance and should be addressed.
  • Burning Smell: A burning odor while or after braking could be a sign of overheated brake pads or a dragging brake caliper.
  • Fluid Leaks: Visible brake fluid leaks near the wheels or under the vehicle are a clear indication of a problem that needs immediate attention.
