How a Brake Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

A qualified mechanic will check over your entire braking system to understand whats causing the issue. This includes checking of the brake fluid for contamination, brake lines, and removing the wheels to measure the thickness of the brake pads, rotors or shoes (if applicable).

The following components are looked at during a Brake Inspection:
- Brake pads and shoes
- Hydraulic fluid
- Rotor and drum wear
- Calipers
- Wheel cylinders
- All brake hardware
- All hoses and lines
- Master cylinder
- Anti-lock system

They will then quote up any repairs or replacement parts if required.

When your brake fluid is leaking around the clutch pedal its often as a result of a:

  • Leaking Hose from Brake Master Cylinder
  • Leaking Master Cylinder
  • Leaking Connection Pipe
  • Failed Brake Master Cylinder Seal

Popular services linked to a Brake Inspection:

Brake Booster Replacement

Your brake booster is what makes it easier to press the pedal in and slow the car down. You’d be surprised how hard it is to physically brake your car without a booster. It makes driving a whole lot easier and it’s something that you won’t truly appreciate till it’s gone.

Front Brake Pad Replacement

Your front brake pads are the things that are pressed against the front brake rotors when you press the brake pedal. The friction between the pad and rotor is what creates the stopping ability. These need to be in top working condition. Not just to keep you safe and prevent accidents, they also need to be in good working order to pass a warranty of fitness.

Brake Shoe Replacement

Most modern cars use disc brakes on all four corners. However, older cars and even some modern ones, use drum brakes. Inside drum brakes are shoes. These shoes press against the spinning drum and slow you down via friction. They were most commonly used on the rear wheels as they don’t require as much braking force.

Rear Brake Rotor Replacement

A rear brake rotor is that disc behind your wheel. Called a ‘rotor’ because it rotates with the wheels as it is connected directly to the hub assembly. It is usually made out of a steel composite material that is designed to withstand large loads and temperatures. This is because with the friction that comes from the pads pressing against them, comes a lot of heat and pressure.

So it’s as they go about their job and get put through these high temperatures they do wear down. Your brakes get thorough workouts every time you drive so they are expected to wear out eventually.
