It has to do this despite any external factors or unpleasant weather conditions, and it has to be done as quickly and safely as possible.
This is no minor task. Considering all your brakes are put through, isn’t it nice to know they’re in the best condition possible?
That’s why our ASE-certified technicians take the time to ensure every guest fully understands the parts and maintenance requirements of their car’s brake system. At Christian Brothers Automotive Yukon, we want you safe during every drive. To help you stay informed, here are a few aspects of the car’s brakes 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 operating effectively, every component of the brake system must be moving in sync. By requesting a brake check with every oil change, our professionals can inspect the brake pads, fluid and rotors to make sure everything is in working order.
Brake pads are essential to the system’s function
To quickly stop a moving vehicle, the brake pads must be at least 3mm (or 4mm on certain cars). If the brake pads have worn down thinner than this, or they’re cracked, our knowledgeable technicians may suggest a brake pad replacement.
Ignoring a thin brake pad can cause damage to the calipers, which can triple the cost of a brake job. If you ever hear a squealing or grinding noise, it’s time for a brake pad check.
At our expert auto shop, we tell the truth about the condition of your guests’ vehicles. Our staff never creates a needless sense of urgency, but does what it takes to keep you safe.
