It does this regardless of any external factors or hostile weather conditions. It also has to be done as quickly and safely as possible.
This is no small responsibility. When you consider all your brakes go through, it’s nice to know they’re in the best condition possible.
That’s why our ASE-certified technicians go out of their way to ensure every guest completely understands the parts and maintenance requirements of their vehicle’s brake system.
At Christian Brothers Automotive North Katy, we want you protected on every drive. To keep you informed, here are a few factors of the brake system you may not know.
The brake system includes many parts
- Brake pads
- Brake booster
- Wheel cylinders
- Brake shoes
- Master cylinder
- Brake fluid
To keep your car running smoothly, every aspect of the brake system must be in proper working order. When you ask for a brake check with every oil change, our experts can assess the brake pads, fluid and rotors to make sure everything is in excellent condition.
Brake pads are essential to the system’s function
To effectively stop a moving car, the brake pads must be at least 3mm (or 4mm on certain cars). If the pads have worn down more than this, or they’re cracked, our professionals may suggest a brake pad replacement.
If the brake pads wear too thin, they will grind against the rotors and could damage other parts of the vehicle. If you hear a squealing or grinding noise, it’s time for a brake pad inspection.
At our Katy auto shop, we tell the truth your vehicle. Our knowledgeable staff never exaggerates service needs, but does the work necessary to keep you safe.
