Brake Services

Anti-Lock Brake System

Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels do not stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Auto Experts, where we will happily diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes

Brake fluid absorbs water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, and possibly damage the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle currently uses fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Auto Experts about when it is time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses

A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These do not need replacement often, but we should replace them at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement

You can usually identify brake pad problems by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you will hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it is too late and you are damaging your rotors or drums. Those with knowledge of auto repair may have the ability to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement

The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Auto Experts as soon as possible, if you experience these issues.

Resurface Rotors

In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle’s wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a “like-new” condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Auto Experts gives your rotors a thorough inspection and recommends your best course of action.
