Brake maintenance is important in helping ensure the safety of you and your passengers. If your brakes are making a squealing sound, that may be a sign that you need brake service immediately. Consult a certified technician for a brake inspection any time you notice this sound or any irregularities in your car’s braking performance.
One thing you can do as a vehicle owner is better understand the different moving parts that make up your brake system. When you press your brake pedal the brake pads create friction; in turn, the brake rotor disperses heat throughout the vehicle to keep the brakes themselves from overheating. Both are essential to the proper functioning of your braking system.
Brake pad replacement is the most common repair job for automotive brake systems. The reason is simple: brakes are designed to wear out. The pads rub on the brake disk to stop your car, so worn pads are the first part to check if you are experiencing any braking problems.
Since brake pads are only one possible problem with a brake system, there are other items to check as well. If the pads are worn thin or are cracked from heat during use, pad replacement may be necessary and the system should be inspected.
The entire brake system is inspected for leaks, master cylinder corrosion, worn pneumatic parts, harmful varnish build-up, broken or rusted bleeder valves, worn rotors and drums and air in the brake lines. All old brake fluid is replaced with BG Heavy Duty DOT 3 or DOT 4 Brake Fluid. The result will be a longer-lasting, more efficient, safer braking system.
