1. Regular Brake Inspections

Routine brake inspections are a fundamental part of normal brake maintenance. During a brake inspection, our experienced technicians will visually inspect your brake components, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake lines, for signs of wear and damage. Catching potential issues early through regular inspections can prevent more extensive and costly repairs down the line.

2. Brake Pad Replacement

Brake pads are designed to wear down over time as they make contact with the rotors to slow and stop your vehicle. As part of normal brake maintenance, brake pads should be inspected regularly and replaced when they reach a certain level of wear. Ignoring worn brake pads can lead to decreased braking performance, increased stopping distances, and damage to other brake components.

3. Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement

Brake rotors can become warped or worn due to repeated braking and friction with the brake pads. During brake maintenance, our technicians will assess the condition of your rotors and determine whether resurfacing or replacement is necessary. Resurfacing involves machining the surface of the rotor to remove imperfections and restore smooth braking performance, while replacement may be necessary if the rotors are excessively worn or damaged.

4. Brake Fluid Flush

Brake fluid plays a crucial role in transferring hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal to the brake components, ensuring effective braking performance. Over time, brake fluid can become contaminated with moisture and debris, leading to decreased braking efficiency and potential damage to brake components. Normal brake maintenance includes periodic brake fluid flushes to remove old fluid and replace it with fresh, clean fluid, helping to maintain optimal braking performance and prolong the lifespan of your brake system.

5. Brake Line Inspection

Brake lines are responsible for transporting brake fluid to the brake components, and any damage or leaks in the brake lines can compromise braking performance and safety. As part of normal brake maintenance, our technicians will inspect your brake lines for signs of corrosion, leaks, or damage and recommend repairs or replacements as needed to ensure the integrity of your brake system.
