Brake service is one of the most important parts of good vehicle maintenance. The last thing a driver wants to experience is losing the ability to stop in good time. There are a few important factors that all vehicle drivers need to know and why a brake repair shop may save a life.

Why Brake Service is Important:

Periodic inspections allow your mechanic to see if the brakes are remaining in good condition or if they are starting to wear enough that it is time for brake replacement. A typical brake service consists of checking a few things, including:

  • Brake pads and rotors – They work together to make a vehicle stop. The noise of squealing and grinding is usually from a bad brake pad. Rotors are metal that can wear down over time. Every time you hit your brakes, the pads push on the rotor and causes metal to wear away. Over time, these will need to be replaced.
  • Brake lines – Every wheel has a line to it that brings the wheel to a stop. Lines get damaged from rust, road debris, and age. An inspection will help ensure that there are no holes in the line and no leaks around the connecting points.

Are There Signs of Bad Brakes?

There are a few signs that indicate you need to have a brake service: If your brakes feel mushy, are pulsating, you hear noises when you hit the brakes, and if you think you are filling your fluid too often, it is time to schedule an appointment. How does it feel when step on the brake pedal? Have your brakes checked as soon as possible by a qualified mechanic at a brake repair shop.
