Why Inspect Brakes?
A squealing or grinding noise should be investigated immediately. Brake performance has improved in recent years, but a large percentage of vehicle’s brakes are not checked regularly. Brake work performed before you hear those squeals can save many dollars in repairs. Worn brake pads that begin to connect metal-to-metal can cause other damage and add extra dollars in brake system overhaul.
What We Inspect
- Brake lines
- Evaluate the condition of the brake fluid. If the brake fluid absorbs moisture it will become acidic. This can lead to deterioration of seals, and damage ABS module on vehicles equipped with Anti Lock Brakes.
- Check for leaks at master cylinder, lines, fittings, hoses, modules, and junction blocks.
- Check emergency brake adjustment.
