Regular brake inspections are a great way to ensure that your brake system is in good condition and to catch problems before they get out of hand. When you bring your vehicle to Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Cedar Creek for a brake inspection, our technicians will inspect the components that wear down, including the brake pads and rotors (as well as brake shoes, if your vehicle has rear drum brakes). if any of these need to be replaced, our technicians will let you know. In addition, they will check the other components of your braking system, including the master cylinder, brake lines, and brake calipers.
The brake pads are made of two main components: a metal backing and a softer lining. The lining is designed to press against the rotors without causing friction damage, which will wear out sooner. When the brake pad lining becomes too thin, you will need to have the brake pads replaced. Failure to do so can cause the metal backing to press against the rotors, causing damage to the rotors. This is why changing the brake pads regularly is important, and we will use OEM brake pads at Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Cedar Creek.
The brake fluid in your vehicle plays a key role in making the entire brake system work. When you step on the brake pedal, hydraulic brake fluid is what transfers that force from the pedal to the calipers, causing them to squeeze together. As it transfers the force, it also amplifies it. Brake fluid is a hygroscopic fluid, which means that it attracts moisture. The more moisture it picks up, the less effective it is. To make sure that your brakes work the way that they need to, you will need to have the brake fluid exchanged at the recommended intervals.
The brake rotors, being made of metal, last longer than brake pads. However, they will still wear down over time and need to be replaced. In addition, the brake rotors may become warped or glazed. If they are still sufficiently thick, we can often simply resurface them instead of replacing them.
While many modern vehicles have disc brakes on all four wheels, some have rear drum brakes. In cases like these, our technicians can perform services like brake shoe replacement.
The Anti-lock Braking System, or ABS, helps prevent your vehicle from entering a skid. If the system is not working as it should, our technicians can help.
