Brakes in Carleton Place

Brakes in Carleton Place 

Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your vehicle. It is of the utmost importance that you ensure that your brakes are in peak working order at all times. Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place will service your brakes in a professional, thorough, and timely fashion. Our technicians are experienced and adept at addressing all manner of brake issues, including:

Brake Pads

Brake pads are the key tool in providing the friction your vehicle needs to come to a safe stop. But brake pads can become ineffective if they are worn down. At Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place, we can assess the status of your brake pads and replace them when necessary.

Noise/Squeal/Grinding

Brakes

If your brakes are making a lot of noise, chances are something is wrong. Brake noise often takes the form of a high-pitched, metallic squeal. Such a noise is cause for concern because it likely means your brakes need fine-tuning. If your brakes make a grinding noise as opposed to a squeal, you need to have them serviced immediately. Grinding is usually caused by contact between rotor disc and the caliper. Grinding can also occur when a foreign object becomes lodged somewhere in the caliper.

Rotors

Your vehicle’s rotors (or disc brakes) are essentially the main mechanism by which your vehicle comes to a stop. Without working rotors, your calipers and brake pads are useless, so that’s why we take the utmost care in inspecting and servicing your rotors.

Brake lines

The brake lines are what supply the brake fluid to transfer pressure to the breaks. If your brake lines don’t work, then your hydraulic brakes don’t work, which means you’re in serious trouble. If you notice that your brake fluid levels are dropping, this may be an indication of wearing disc brakes. Frequent top-ups may also be a sign of a leak in your hydraulic system.

Brake Flush

If you notice your brake fluid is dirty or you’re not sure when your brake fluid was last inspected you should consider having it checked by Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place. A brake flush is essential regularly to maintain proper levels of brake fluid and thus efficient, safe brakes.

Drums

A drum brake is a type of brake in which shoes press on the inner surface of the drum. As with all brakes, regular maintenance is required to ensure safety.

ABS

ABS (or anti-lock braking system) is one of the most crucial safety systems in modern vehicles. Your ABS prevents your wheels from locking up (hence the term “anti-lock”) and ceasing rotation, thus reducing skidding. It is a good idea to have your ABS inspected regularly, especially in the autumn. Once the roads become icy in winter, your anti-lock brakes could be the only thing saving you from losing control of your automobile.

Calipers

The calipers are what squeeze the brake pads against a disc, creating the friction required to slow your vehicle.

Brake Service

Pulsation

Pulsation in your brakes is a sign of them not working properly. Pulsation usually occurs as a result of your brakes not transferring heat and friction properly and can be dangerous. Regular pulsation is cause for a tune up at Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place.

At Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place, we can service all aspects of your brakes. Our ASE-certified technicians will do everything to keep your vehicle in great shape. Don’t wait to get your brakes fixed—make a service appointment at Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place today!
