Brakes Inspection

It’s best to have your brakes looked at around every year (or at about 10,000 or so miles) regardless of whether or not anything is wrong at the time.

A crucial part of your brakes’ health is prevention, and brakes are not something you want a sudden problem with while you’re out driving.

We’ll check brake pads, rotors, calipers, and other major brakes components to ensure everything’s working correctly, and have you back on the road as soon as possible! See our list of the main components of a typical car braking system.

The Main Components of a Car Braking System

A typical car braking system consists of several parts Here is a typical list of the components of a car braking system and what we check for during a brakes inspection.

  • Brake Rotors: These are metal discs attached to the wheel hubs that brake pads press against when you hit the brakes. When you apply the brakes, these discs are squeezed by the brake pads held in the calipers. This creates friction which stops the wheel’s rotation, and the car. If your rotors become warped or cracked due to wear or damage, they will need to be replaced in order for your brakes to work properly.
  • Calipers: These metal units slide over the rotor and contain pistons that push the brake pads together against the rotors when you press the brake pedal. They can also become stuck due to wear or damage and need periodic inspection and repair as needed.
  • Brake Pads: These are the pads attached to the calipers that press against your brake rotors when you step on the brake pedal. Over time, they become worn and need to be replaced periodically in order to ensure a smooth, safe stop. These are often the part that need to be replaced more frequently.
  • Master Cylinder: This is an important part of your braking system as it is responsible for controlling the pressure at which your brakes are applied by pushing fluid through a series of valves and pistons in your calipers. If it becomes damaged or fails, your braking performance will be affected and you will likely need to replace it in order for your brakes to work properly again.
  • Hydraulic Lines: These carry fluid from the master cylinder throughout your braking system so that it can reach all of its components evenly. Over time, these lines can develop leaks due to age or accident-related damage and will likely need replacement if any issues arise with them.

    To continue to be safe and effective at stopping your vehicle, your car’s braking system needs periodic maintenance. This includes inspecting all of its components (brake pads, rotors, calipers, master cylinder, hydraulic lines) for any signs of wear or damage, and replacing them when required in order for everything to work together smoothly and safely.
