BRING YOUR VEHICLE IN FOR BRAKE SERVICING
When your brakes start to feel spongy or hard to press down on are two of the most common signs that your system needs servicing. In these cases, it is likely that air has got into the lines or that you're low on brake fluid.
Other indicators include noises such as a squealing or grinding. This signals your pads are worn and will likely need immediate servicing. Also, if your car pulls to one side, or if your steering wheel or brake pedal shakes it may be time for a brake system inspection; your rotors may be warped and need replacing. In some cases, rotors can be resurfaced to save money. Lastly, your anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning lights will indicate when you’re running low on brake fluid, or that there may be a leak somewhere in your brake lines.
What's Included In My Brake Inspection
Check anti-lock brake sensors
Check brake fluid condition and levels
Check rotors for hot spots and run-outs
Test hardware for necessary adjustments
Check for even wear and measure brake pad/shoe thickness
Inspect calipers for wear & tear, fluid line leaks and movement
Ensure brake lines, and master and wheel cylinders aren’t leaking
ALL YOUR BRAKES NEEDS IN 1 SIMPLE PLACE
There are many mistakes that can be made while repairing your brake system. Errors such as not measuring rotor thickness and installing brake pads backward happen more often than you’d think. Not cleaning the brake slides and hardware before installation are also common occurrences. Any of these oversights can result in costly damages to your vehicle.
Brake fluid becomes contaminated and can shorten the life of your vehicle’s brakes system. Kings County Collision & Repair helps maintain the integrity of your braking components with quality brake fluid.
MOST COMMON BRAKE SERVICE QUESTIONS
Q: Why won't the shop give me an estimate over the phone or from an email with a picture?A: Without seeing the car in person, it's nearly impossible to provide an accurate quote. It is very common for vehicles to require additional prep work.
Q: Do I have to make an appointment for an estimate?A: Appointments are not necessary, but you can still schedule one for your convenience by using our online appointment software..
Q: Will the price I pay be the same as the estimate? No surprises?A: Yes. The price you pay could be higher than your initial estimate if hidden damage is discovered during the repair and/or refinishing process or if the cost of parts increases. This is extremely uncommon; however, when it does occur, we will always call to discuss your options and offer you the opportunity to come in and see the repair area first hand.
