Our Brake Repair & Service Includes
Brake Pad Replacement
If you have squeaky brakes, you may have a brake pad problem. If your brakes are grinding, making a metal-on-metal sound, come in for a brake repair away before ruining your rotors or drums! We offer brake pad replacement to ensure your brakes continue to work smoothly when you need them most!
Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a “like-new” condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Let us give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliber problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Fred’s Auto Center as soon as possible.
Brake Hose Replacement
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don’t need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flush
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Fred’s Auto Center, LLC about when it’s time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don’t stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Fred’s Auto Center, LLC where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
