Brake Repair and Brake Inspections in Montgomery

Complete Brake Repairs and Inspections

Your car’s braking system is one of the most important systems in your vehicle. Regular brake inspections and repairing your brakes when needed can mean the difference between life and death for you, your passengers, and others on the road. It is critical to ensure your brakes are serviced regularly and repaired immediately if they begin to show evidence of wear or improper functioning. Our auto technicians at Performance Auto Repair offer brake services from inspection to repair. You can trust our experts to guide you to safety without ever recommending unnecessary parts and repairs.

Regular inspection of the brake system will help to prevent extensive damage. Damage to the system can lead to costly brake line repairs.

Complete Brake Inspection Services

Getting regular brake inspection is an important part of maintaining your vehicle.  The brakes on your car are composed of many components and their condition affects the overall functioning of the brake system.  If there is an issue with any one of these components, the system will need brake repair.  Ensuring your safety begins with a complete inspection of your vehicle’s brake system.  This initial inspection will identify which brake components are in need of being repaired or replaced.

Our Advanced Level ASE Certified Technicians at Performance Auto Repair will carry out a detailed inspection of the entire brake system on your vehicle.

This inspection will include:

•Lining condition

•Rotors and Drums

•Wheel Cylinders and Calipers

•Hoses and Lines

•Brake Pads and Hardware

•Master Cylinder

The need for brake repair on any of these components will depend upon factors like age, mileage and degree of normal wear and tear.  The technicians at Performance Auto Repair are highly trained to perform a brake line repair that gives you the peace of mind in knowing that your brakes will perform properly, keep you safe,  and last for many miles of safe driving.

 Common Signs You Need Brake Repair:

•There is a high pitched tone while braking (a “squealing” or “squeaking” sound)

•The vehicle pulls while braking

•The brakes grind while braking

•The brakes seem to be dragging

•A pulsating brake pedal (with ABS not functioning)

•A low brake pedal

If your vehicle braking system shows any of these signs, contact Performance Auto Repair. Let us perform a complete brake inspection.  Letting “small signs” of brake problems continue without service or brake repair will lead to major issues, potentially even a need for total brake replacement.  You never want to let your brakes get to the “metal-to-metal” point.  Letting the brakes go to this point could mean larger brake repairs like a rotor or drum replacement. Call the professionals at Performance Auto Repair. Let us help keep you on the road safely.

Brake Repair

After the intensive initial inspection has identified which brake components are causing a problem, our technicians will repair or replace only those components that are damaged.  Therefore, depending on the condition of your vehicle’s brake system, our comprehensive brake repair could possibly include one or more of the following:

•Inspecting and replacing the pads and hardware components if they have been compromised or are in poor condition.

•Replacing swollen, leaking, chaffed or age-cracked (dry rotted) hoses and ensuring that the replacement hoses have the same type of end fittings as the original.

•Refinishing (turning) the rotors and drums if they are within machine specifications. This could also mean replacing the rotors and drums if they are worn out and become too thin to refinish and reuse.

•Replacing damaged, kinked, corroded or leaking steel lines; we make use of only approved steel tubing with double-flared or ISO flare ends for steel brake lines.

•Rebuilding or replacing a leaking, badly corroded, damaged or frozen caliper or wheel cylinder.

•Replacing the master cylinder in your vehicle’s brake system if it leaks or if the brake pedal is gradually sinking to the floor.

•Inspecting and lubricating caliper contact points and caliper pins using only high temperature synthetic or silicone brake grease.

•Inspecting, cleaning and repacking the wheel bearings with new bearing grease and installing brand new grease seals when appropriate.  Factory sealed bearings are not serviceable and should be replaced.

•Replacing old brake fluid with fresh fluid. This is done using a pressure exchange system and completely bleeding air from the brake system.

Overlooking the need for brake repair of any of these components might not have an immediate impact on your vehicle’s brake system, but it will definitely create compounding problems at some point in the future. Having your vehicle’s brake system inspected, serviced and repaired in a timely manner can help eliminate the creation of further problems.  At Performance Auto Repair our technicians will provide you with outstanding brake repair service where you will have peace of mind knowing your vehicle’s brake system will work properly when needed.  We never cut corners when it comes to your vehicle’s brake repair and the safety of you and your family.
