Common Kinds of Brake Repair

Brake Pads and Rotors

In this post we'd enjoy going over the most elementary types of brake repair and what to look

out for when your brakes have issues. You'll ultimately need to have your brakes serviced. Brake repair is frequently awfully affordable, but can get steep if brakes are not serviced on a constant basis. The first most typical problem is the brake pads. These have to be replaced intermittently to prevent the lining from wearing down and causing the brake shoe to rub on the rotor causing damage and reducing brake potency. The disk rotor has a very machined surface where the brake pads contact it. Just as the brake pads wear out over the passage of time the rotor also undergoes

some wear, usually in the shape of ridges and groves where the brake pad rubs against it.

Brake Fluid

Another issue that may be a problem is brake liquid most modern automobiles have a clear brake fluid reservoir that allows you to see your brake fluid level simply. If you happen to detect the brake fluid is dropping in a short period of time you have to have your brakes check as quickly as achievable. Also brake fluid should be clear or barely yellow if the liquid is dark or filthy it needs to be flushed.

Master Cylinder

The most common problem is an internal leak. This may cause the brake pedal to slowly sink to the floor when your foot applies steady pressure. Letting go of the pedal and right away treading on it again brings the pedal back to normal height. If the master cylinder fails, the brake warning light on the dash will light, alerting you to the problem.

Brakes Lines

Brake Fluid comes from the master cylinder to the wheels in tubes called the brake lines if any of the contections or tube fail they must be replaced


The caliper is what pushes the brake pads onto the rotor when you step on the brake pedal. If the calipers lock up, the brake pads will wear down to metal and then damage the rotor. Caliper pistons can also leak hydraulic fluid, causing the pads to lack the capability to press agaish the rotor, and the brakes will fail.

In this post we sumed up some of the basic brake repair issues you are likely to encounter. Please be at liberty to Call us at (281) 379-5800 to line up an appointment if you are having difficulty with the brakes on your vehicle.
