Proper brake maintenance is crucial for the safe and reliable operation of your vehicle. Regular maintenance helps to identify potential issues early on, prevent costly repairs, and ensure optimal braking performance. At Autolab in Englewood, we offer comprehensive brake maintenance services to keep your brakes in top condition.
A thorough brake inspection is the first step in brake maintenance. Our skilled technicians visually inspect the brake components, including the brake pads, rotors, calipers, brake lines, and hardware, to check for wear, damage, and signs of malfunction. We also assess the brake fluid level and quality.
Brake Pad Replacement
Brake pads are a critical component of the braking system that undergoes wear over time. During brake maintenance, our technicians will measure the brake pad thickness and recommend replacement if they are worn beyond the manufacturer’s specified limits. Installing new brake pads ensures proper braking performance and minimizes the risk of damage to other brake components.
Brake Fluid Flush
Brake fluid plays a vital role in the operation of the hydraulic braking system. Over time, brake fluid can become contaminated with moisture, debris, and contaminants, which can affect its performance. During brake maintenance, our technicians may recommend a brake fluid flush to remove the old, degraded fluid and replace it with fresh fluid. This helps maintain proper brake system function and extends the life of brake components.
Brake System Adjustment
Proper adjustment of the brake system is essential for optimal braking performance. During brake maintenance, our technicians will inspect and adjust the brake system components as necessary. This may include adjusting the brake pedal height and free play, adjusting the parking brake, and ensuring proper brake pad contact with the rotors.
