The Basics Behind Brake Inspection Services

Each time you use the brake pedals in your vehicle, you exert significant friction which in turn generates heat. This heat gradually causes the brakes and their components to wear out. Therefore, it is essential to regularly inspect the brake components of your vehicle to ensure that they remain in proper condition.

There are two common types of brakes; disc brakes and drum brakes. The components of disc brakes typically include rotors, calipers, brake pads and hydraulics while drum brakes generally are made up of wheel cylinders, self-adjusters, brake shoes, and springs. In the disc brake system, the parking brake assembly is housed in a rotor while in the drum brake system, it is housed in a drum. The parking brake assembly is the part of the brake which prevents the vehicle from rolling after it is halted.

Note that a proper brake inspection must cover the brake pedal and the brake fluid to ensure the safety of the vehicle.

Why Should You Have Brake Inspection Services Performed

Brake inspections must be performed regularly to ensure that a vehicle is safe for driving. K&K Tire and Auto will conduct brake inspections based on your driving preferences. These inspections allow us to find and diagnose any brake issues, then recommend the most suitable repair procedures. Brake inspections will enable us to determine what part of your vehicle’s brake system needs to be repaired or replaced. It could be anything from the wheel cylinders and brake calipers to the shoes and brake pads. We could also discover that the brake lines are clogged with dirt and air or other contaminants and recommend replacement of the brake fluid. The brake lines may also need to be replaced if there are visible cracks or signs of heat damage. Sometimes, we may recommend that the drums or rotors be replaced depending on their condition. K&K Tire and Auto approach each inspection differently because the methods and items used depend on the vehicle and its condition.
