Cedar Park Brake Service FAQs
What parts are involved in the braking system?
The braking system in your vehicle is composed of several different elements that all work together to slow the momentum of your vehicle and bring it to a halt. The braking system is made up of:
- Brake pads
- Brake calipers
- Wheel cylinders
- Brake rotors
- Brake drums (if applicable)
- Brake fluid
- Brake lines and hoses
- Parking-brake cables
Because your vehicle’s braking system is composed of so many different elements, it is vital to maintain a consistent brake-check schedule and bring your vehicle to a brake shop at the first sign of an issue. The mechanics at our Cedar Park auto shop have years of experience with the complexities of the braking system and can perform your brake check and brake service in no time.
Why are my brakes making a grinding noise?
When your brakes are making any strange noises, it is usually an indicator that there is something wrong that requires a trip to the brake shop for a brake check. Some of the reasons your brakes are making a grinding noise are:
- The rotors and brake pads are wearing down, and you will need to have them replaced. A grinding noise due to wear is often an indicator that your brakes have sustained extensive damage.
- There is an object embedded in the brake pads or brake calipers.
- Your brake pads or rotors are not correctly positioned within the wheel cylinder.
When you start to notice a strange grinding or squealing noise when applying the brakes, you will need to have your brakes checked. Any strange noise from your brakes is not a good sign and could mean your brakes may not be safe to drive on. Lamb’s Tire & Automotive has years of experience diagnosing grinding noises from your brakes and will gladly help you with whatever brake service you need.
