Maintaining good brake condition is paramount to driving safely on the road. A few simple maintenance tasks can ensure your brakes continue working as intended, helping avoid costly repairs in the future. Spongy or jerky feeling could be your car’s way of telling you it needs inspection or service; other indicators could include squealing noises or burning smells – should this be happening, reach out to our Car Service La Mesa specialist right away for assistance!

Brake Pads

Brake pads wear down over time, leaving behind a thin metal layer that squeals when you hit the pedal. This is an indicator that it is time to replace them before they damage rotors or drums – ignoring this warning could result in costly repairs for either.

Brake Fluid

Your brake fluid is essential to your braking system, yet over time it can gradually degrade as it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. This can compromise their effectiveness or even damage them altogether; so having professional services replace it regularly is recommended.

Brake Calipers

Brake calipers serve to hold brake pads in place when applying your brakes, clamping around the rotor like a clamp and compressing them against it like an instrument of force when needed. If your caliper is malfunctioning, this could result in uneven braking that makes controlling your car in adverse weather more challenging; Car Service La Mesa offers straightforward repair solutions to take care of this repair quickly and reliably.

ABS Systems

Your anti-lock braking system (ABS) is an integral safety feature of your car, yet over time it may develop problems which lead to loss of traction and increased risks of multiple vehicle accidents and run-off road collisions. Car Service La Mesa provides excellent repair services which can ensure long-term cost-savings, time, and frustration savings by inspecting and servicing anti-lock brakes professionally.

Ensure Your Safety

When it comes to your car’s safety, the brake system is one of the most important systems. Keeping up with maintenance and knowing when to service your brakes will keep them functioning properly, which will ensure you’re not only driving safely but also maintaining the value of your vehicle.

It is essential to take your vehicle in for servicing so each part works at the highest level of performance and safety possible. During Brake Services, a professional will inspect the entire braking system. This will include checking the brake fluid level, repairing any worn or damaged components, replacing old or dirty brake pads, resurfacing the rotors and adjusting the braking mechanism.

Our Brake Service Process

The first thing the auto repair technician will do is check the condition of your car’s brake pads. If the brake pads are wearing down and starting to rub directly against the rotors, it will cause damage to your rotors and can lead to a shaking steering wheel and ineffective stopping. The service professional will recommend replacing the pads before they cause any further problems.

After the brake pads are replaced, the technician will resurface your rotors. This will remove any grooves or heat cracks from the rotor surface and return it to its original smoothness. When a car goes too long without being serviced, the rotors can wear down to the point where they will start to eat away at the brake pads. This will cause a pulsating feeling in the brake pedal. The rotors will be measured using a micrometer to assure they are within specifications and that the brake pads are covering them completely.

Next, the service professional will replace any worn or damaged calipers and install new brake fluid. It is important to use high-quality brake fluid as it protects the braking system against corrosion and keeps it operating at its maximum efficiency.

A good service shop will also replace the brake pad sensors and bleed the brake lines to make sure there are no leaks. This is important because it will prevent the brake line from leaking fluid and cause a loss of pressure which would reduce your brake’s effectiveness.

During the brake repair, the technician will also inspect and clean the brake hoses and master cylinder if needed. They will also look at the steel brake lines, proportioning valve, ABS and rubber hoses for any signs of damage or wear.

When to Replace Brake Pads

While there is no set schedule for when a car should be serviced, most automotive professionals will recommend that the brakes are checked every three or four years. The brake pads should be changed once they are down to 3mm or less. At this point, the pads have worn down to a point where they are rubbing against the rotors which can create heat and eventually damage them. A good mechanic will be able to tell you when the time is right to replace the pads.
