What is Included in Brake Service? Typical brake repair includes:
- Brake pad replacement: This is probably the most common problem in brake service. Under normal driving conditions, brake pads should be replaced at fixed intervals. If you drive and brake faster than other drivers, you will likely need to replace your brake pads more often than usual.
- Line “bleeding”: If your brake fluid gets polluted or if it develops air bubbles, the line might need to be bled. Bleeding the brake lines will usually lower the amount of pressure required to use the brakes. If your brake pads and master cylinder are performing well, then bleeding is usually the next step to fix your brake issues.
- Line replacement: For your brakes to work the way you want them to, everything needs to stay lubricated. Brake lines deliver brake fluid to do this. If a hole or tear is created in the line, you need to bring your car in for brake repair as soon as possible. The more damage there is to the lines, the more difficult it is to bring your vehicle to a full stop…and the more dangerous driving becomes.
- Every once in a while, the master cylinder, the part that regulates fluid pressure, may need replacing. If it does, we will find this during our brake inspection or while working on other brake issues, and we will be able to repair it for you.
