Before breaking down the brake repair process, you need to be familiar with the major components of your vehicle’s braking system. Those include the brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake fluid.
What exactly is the mechanic up to during brake replacement? What does the entire process involve for your vehicle? Your certified technicians start with a visual inspection of the braking system’s components, checking for evidence of damage on brake pads and rotors. Worn out brake pads are dangerous and can cause further damage to rotors, leading to brake failure. The lines, hoses, calipers and other hydraulic components are also inspected for fluid contaminants that degrade performance. With so much riding on them, brakes need a professional hand when it’s time for repairs and replacements.
When and how frequently your brakes need service and repair depends on a few key factors.
