Sunrise Manor Brake Service FAQs

How often should I have my brake rotors replaced?

Your brake rotors are designed to withstand a massive amount of friction on a daily basis and take a beating every time you drive. As wear and tear on your brakes increases, the brake rotors will start to get rough and may need to be resurfaced or replaced. The main sign of wear to a rotor is the reduced thickness of the brake rotors. Once the rotors have sustained too much wear and cannot be resurfaced, it is necessary to have them replaced.The brake rotors are an essential part of being able to stop your vehicle and need to be serviced at the first sign of an issue. Driving with worn brake rotors can lead to brake failure and even an accident. Do not be caught off guard from failing brakes, book an appointment online and have Tire Works Total Car Care in Sunrise Manor keep your brakes in tiptop shape.

What could cause brake failure?

There are many different things that could go wrong with your brakes and cause brake failure. Some of the reasons that brakes fail are:

  • The brake rotors are damaged. The brake rotors are designed to withstand high friction and endure a lot of wear and tear. If the brake rotors are too thin, then it could lead to brake failure.
  • The brake pads are overheated. The friction that the brake pads create will produce high temperatures that could make the brake pads brittle and be less effective.
  • The brake line is leaking or losing hydraulic fluid, which could result in a loss of hydraulic fluid pressure.

What are brake calipers?

The brake calipers house the pistons and brake pads in each wheel that put pressure on the brake rotors and pads to bring the vehicle to a stop. The brake calipers are one of the most essential components of the brakes on your vehicle and should be maintained by a regular brake check and brake service to keep your vehicle safe to drive.

What should I know about the brakes on my car?

The brakes on your vehicle are built up of several components that all work to make your vehicle slow down and stop. The main components in your brakes are:

  • Brake pads
  • Brake calipers
  • Brake rotors
  • Brake fluid and brake lines
  • Wheel cylinders
  • Master cylinder
  • Parking brake cables
  • Miscellaneous hardware and hoses
  • Power brake booster

With a number of elements all working together to stop your vehicle, keeping your brakes in perfect condition is essential for safe driving. By having Tire Works Total Car Care in Sunrise Manor perform your brake service, you can be certain that all these moving parts will work when you need them and that your brake check is being handled by a team of professional mechanics.
