Brakes & Brake Repair
Car brakes are the most crucial part in all of the auto’s security. To avoid an unexpected road accident, it is recommended to check and if needed to change the brakes at least once every year…
There are several symptoms that can clearly show you that the vehicle’s brakes need your urgent attention!
Get a brake service inspection if any of the following is true:
– The brake pedal feels to be spongy or presses further down the floor than usually
– Your vehicle careens to the right or left when you brake
– Unusual noises or vibrations occur when you hit the brakes
– Many brake pads these days have a built-in metal component that creates a slight squeal. The squeal becomes louder just as you hit the brakes. If you begin to hear a loud squealing noise, make sure to bring your vehicle to your local Cordova Auto for a full inspection and possible repairs assessment.
Replacing Your Brake Pads.
Brake pad replacement is a very common repair job for automotive brake systems. The reason is simple: brakes wear out naturally, as the material they’re made with has durability limits… The pads rub on the brake disk to stop your car, so worn pads are the first part to check if you are experiencing any braking issues.
In case you have the required tools for you there are two most difficult aspects of brake pad replacement. These are the heavy weight of the caliper and the pistons. Without proper, professional tools, adjusting the piston and calipers to fit over the new, thicker pads can be very difficult. So we highly recommend avoiding doing it on your own and encourage you to put your trust in a professional repair shop.
Since brake pads are only one possible problem with a brake system, there are other things that need to b checked as well. If the pads are worn thin or are cracked from heat during use, pad replacement may be necessary and the system should be inspected.
