The Basics of Brakes
Braking a car is as easy as putting your foot on a pedal and pressing down. Beneath the surface, however, is a sophisticated system of parts that make the act of braking possible. Numerous components make up the brake system: brake pads, brake calipers, lines, rotors, a master cylinder, and fluid, and each works together to ensure your vehicle stops right when you want it to. Most vehicles come with either a disc or drum brake system. In simplest terms, disc brakes utilize a rotor and caliper to create the friction needed to stop, while drum brakes use a drum and shoes. At our auto shop, we know the ins and outs of brake care of both systems and how to perform proper brake repair. Whether you need a quick brake fluid exchange or a replacement of the master cylinder, you can count on us for quality and results. Frog Pond Performance serves Oakboro, North Carolina, and the surrounding area with service you can trust! For your brake repair and maintenance needs, visit us soon!
Common Automotive Brake Problems
Our trained technicians are experts of all brake procedures, from brake fluid top-offs and leak patching to comprehensive brake replacement and installation. An issue with your brake system that warrants brake repair is often noticeable. For example, a loud screeching sound is usually a sign of worn brake pads. If grinding occurs, your brake pads likely have worn through and are now creating metal-on-metal friction with the rotors. From there, your rotors can warp and become severely compromised. Uneven rotors will make themselves known via vibrations when you press the brake pedal, which can happen from rust or general wear and tear. If your brake pedal feels “loose,” it may point to a problem with the master cylinder. And, of course, if your brake light is illuminated in the dashboard, there is clearly something wrong! We recommend coming in sooner rather than later for complete diagnostics. For professional brake repair service, make an appointment with us today.
