Brakes & Rotors, Brake Pads & More
While our certified Master Level Technicians will be the ones servicing your vehicle, it is also important to note that you as the owner of the vehicle would benefit from learning for your brake parts relate to one another and affect the whole.
When you are driving and need to press on the brake pedal, there is another part, called a brake pad, that creates friction and slows down the vehicle. This friction gives off heat, so a brake rotor takes this, and disperses it throughout the car in order to keep the brake pad from overheating.
Without these 3 major components functioning properly, problems arise.
Signs That You Need To Have A Brake Repair
There are a few widely common signs to look out for is you own a vehicle that pertains to brake performance:
- The brake pedal seems has to be pushed down harder and further to the floor than before in order for the car to stop
- If you find that your car pulls to one side when you push down on the brake, you need it inspected
- If you begin to hear noises when you press the brake or a vibration occurs, this is a classic sign of brake pad wear
Modern brake pads are designed using a metal part that will create a squeal-like noise as it wears down. This squeal will gradually become louder, creating an alert for you, the vehicle owner, to remind you to go and have your brake pads inspected.
Brake Pad Replacement
If you have any of the signs mentioned in the previous section, then it is time to bring in your car for a brake pad inspection. More often brake pads are the culprit as they are made to wear down over time. If a crack is found due to overheating, a mechanic near me will be sure to replace the pads and check the other related components to ensure all is safe for the driver after the service.
Brake pad replacements take a bit of time and require the piston and calipers to be readjusted and placed over the new thicker brake pads. With the proper tools, your technician can finish this job within an hour or two maximum depending on the type of vehicle you own.
