  • 1.Everything You Need To Know About Brake Jobs
  • 2.Brakes are essential to the proper function of your vehicle. They’re responsible for bringing your thousand(s)-pound vehicle to a halt, making safe turns and slowing down. If your brakes are not maintained properly, you run the risk of damaging the vehicle or getting involved in an accident, which can cause serious injury to yourself and others on the road. For this reason, brake inspections and repairs are essential to the proper functioning of your vehicle and shouldn’t be neglected.
  • 3.Signs It Might Be Time Noises & Squealing…we’re all familiar with that high pitched squeal emitted whenever we apply the brakes. The squeal comes from a sensor that lets you know your brakes are in need of servicing. In addition to any squeals you’ll want to listen for any harsh grinding noises indicating your brake pads are completely worn and the metal of your brake calipers are grinding against your rotors. If you hear grinding noises there’s no time to delay, bring your car into our shop straight away. If your rotors become damaged, your inexpensive brake job will soon mushroom into an expensive repair job due to having to replace the rotors.
  • 4.Touchy Brake Pedal On the opposite side of the spectrum is the brake pedal that is overly touchy. If your brake pedal is sensitive to even the slightest touch, you may have an unevenly worn rotor, or your brake fluid may need changing. Again, bring your car in for a free inspection and we’ll diagnose it for you. Finally, the most dangerous of conditions is when it feels like your brakes are not sufficient enough to bring the car to a complete halt. Bring your car in for an inspection immediately to determine if there’s a brake line obstruction or if the vacuum system is functioning properly.
  • 5.What to Expect During a Brake Job If your vehicle requires a full service repair… A full service repair will include replacing the brake pads, the shoes and also resurfacing the rotors/drums so they look/function like new. The brake calipers/hardware and brake fluid may also need to be replaced. The entire repair should be completed in a few hours or less, depending on the condition of your braking system and how extensive the repairs are.Consider Having Other Maintenance Inspections Done at The Same Time While most brake jobs are quickly completed in a few hours, this is an ideal time to have a few other maintenance procedures performed (if your car needs it) to save time and possibly money. During the inspection, the wheels will be removed so the technicians can properly work on the braking system. Consider asking a technician to inspect your struts, wheel bearings, and also the tires themselves.
  • 6.What You Should Know About Free Brake Inspections Do your homework Free or reduced cost brake inspections are advertised all the time. While they may be a great opportunity to determine whether or not you need a simple or extensive brake repair, you need to do your homework. This type of work is where disreputable shops try to save money by using substandard parts or sneak in unneeded parts and services. You’ll always be treated fairly at Elite Auto Repair, and you can trust our ASE certified technicians to do the job right the first time.
  • 7.What Happens During the Free Inspection During the free brake check, the wheels will be removed and a visual inspection of the entire braking system will be performed. Occasionally you’ll be alerted to the wear and tear of the wheels and tires (if not ask so you can avoid another visit to our shop in the near future), the thickness of the brake pads will be measured and the condition of the rotors and brake caliper will be visually inspected as well. The Service Manager/Advisor will discuss their findings with you and make repair suggestions.
