Types of brake services
The type of brake service your vehicle requires will vary depending on the problem, but there are a few routine brake repairs that are a part of regular maintenance and upkeep.
Brake pad replacement
One of the simplest and least costly brake repairs (if no other repair are needed), replacing a vehicle’s brake pads can be accomplished by a our mobile mechanic. Replacement brake pads for common non-luxury vehicles frequently cost less $200 per axle, but be careful, as improper installation of brake pads can cause some of the symptoms noted above.
It’s usually a good idea to consider resurfacing or “turning” the rotor when it comes time to replace the brake pads. Because your vehicle’s brake stopping power relies on as much surface area between the rotor and brake coming in contact cleanly, a rotor that is scored or worn may need to be resurfaced.
Brake rotors typically include wear indicators that show if there’s enough material left to be resurfaced. A mechanic can also check the thickness of the rotor against the manufacturer’s recommendations. If there’s enough remaining material, a technician will place the rotor on a special lathe and scrape just enough material away to create a new evenly smooth rotor surface. If there’s not enough material, the rotors will need to be replaced.
Since the braking system relies on multiple interconnected components from the brake pedal to the brake booster to the master cylinder to the brake fluid to the brake lines and each individual caliper, piston, pad and rotor, it’s important to find a trusted, experienced mechanic or technician who can make recommendations and adjustments to the brake system when needed.
