Brake Pads

Brake pads are the most important component in producing the friction required for your vehicle to come to a safe stop.

Brake pads, on the other hand, can become ineffective if they are worn down. Car Salon TIRECRAFT can examine the condition of your brake pads and, if necessary, replace them.

Noise/Squeal/Grinding

Something is likely amiss if your brakes are producing a lot of noise. Brake noise is frequently characterized by a high-pitched metallic screech. This type of noise is concerning since it indicates that your brakes need to be fine-tuned.

If your brakes grind rather than screech, you should have them serviced as soon as possible. Contact between the rotor disc and the caliper is the most common cause of grinding.

Sometimes it is just a foreign object becoming lodged somewhere in the caliper that might also cause grinding.

Rotors

The rotors (or disc brakes) on your car are the primary mechanism for bringing your vehicle to a halt.

Your calipers and brake pads are useless without working rotors, which is why we inspect and service your rotors with extreme caution.

Brake Lines

The brake lines are responsible for delivering braking fluid and transferring pressure to the brakes.

If your brake lines fail, your hydraulic brakes will fail as well, putting you in significant danger. You might find that your brake fluid levels are declining, it could be a sign that your disc brakes are wearing out. Top-ups on a regular basis could indicate a leak in your hydraulic system.

Brake Flush

If you find that your brake fluid is contaminated or you’re not sure when it was last inspected, you should have it checked by TIRECRAFT. A brake flush is required on a regular basis to maintain proper brake fluid levels and, as a result, efficient and safe brakes.

Drums

A drum brake is a form of brake in which the shoes press on the drum’s inner surface. Regular maintenance is essential for all brakes to guarantee safety.

ABS

Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are one of the most important safety features in modern vehicles. Your ABS keeps your wheels from locking up (thus the name “anti-lock”) and stopping rotating, reducing skidding.

Having your ABS inspected on a regular basis, especially in the autumn, is a good idea. Your anti-lock brakes may be the only thing keeping you from losing control of your vehicle once the roads become slippery in the winter.

Calipers

The calipers squeeze the brake pads against the disc to create the friction needed to slow your car down.

Pulsation

When your brakes pulsate, it means they aren’t operating properly. Pulsation is caused by your brakes failing to transfer heat and friction efficiently, and it can be harmful. Pulsation on a regular basis is a sign that your TIRECRAFT needs to be serviced.

    Need New Brakes?

    Signs Your ABS System Needs Service

    Repair or replacement costs for an anti-lock braking system, or ABS, can be costly.

    The first thing you need to do is bring your vehicle to the specialists at the Car Salon Tirecraft in Calgary, AB.

    More effort may be needed to press down the brake pedal, or the pedal may actually be unresponsive. If your ABS brakes require service, you will still have the control and use of your regular braking system. This is no reason to ignore the ABS brake service.

    You may need only a new brake fluid or just a small part. Maybe new brake pads are needed.

    FAQ'S about Brake Repair Calgary

    We now have an FAQ list that we hope will help you answer some of the more common ones.

    How much should it cost to replace brakes?

    A total brake repair, which includes the replacement of pads, rotors, and calipers, costs between $400 and $800. A complete brake job, on the other hand, can easily cost more than $1,000 depending on the make and model of your vehicle.

    Should you replace all 4 brake pads at once?

    Both the front and rear brake pads should be replaced at the same time. Unless something is seriously wrong, they should be wearing out at roughly the same rate.

    How often should brake calipers be serviced?

    Brake calipers should be serviced every two years or 24,000 miles on your vehicle. Brake caliper maintenance is necessary and distinct from standard brake maintenance.

    What does a brake service include?

    Flushing old brake fluid, adding new, replacing pads, resurfacing rotors, and adjusting braking mechanisms are all part of a good brake service.

    How do I know if my front or back brakes are bad?

    Never Ignore These 8 Warning Signs of Brake Problems
    1. Brake Light On. …
    2. Squealing, Squeaking or Grinding Noises. …
    3. Wobbling, Vibration or Scraping When Braking. …
    4. Leaking Fluid. …
    5. Spongy or Soft Brake Pedal. …
    6. Car Pulling to One Side When Braking. …
    7. Burning Smell While Driving. …
    8. Bouncing Up and Down When You Stop Short.

    How long should a brake job last?

    Brake pads typically last between 40,000 and 100,000 kilometers, while some people’s brake pads can last up to 130,000 km. While an exact figure is impossible to give, the 65,000-km range is a good place to start when planning car maintenance.

    Can I drive with a bad caliper?

    If your calliper is stuck, the brake pad will not fully disengage from the surface of the brake rotor. This means you’ll be driving with your brakes slightly applied all of the time. Driving with a stuck caliper can put a strain on the transmission and cause it to fail sooner.

    When should you clean your brakes?

    Brakes need to be inspected in regular mileage or time intervals; typically every 5,000-7,000 miles or every 4-6 months, whichever comes first.

    What do bad calipers sound like?

    Noises such as squealing or metallic rubbing. Noises from the area of the damaged part may be heard if a brake caliper sticks or freezes up. In contrast to noises associated with worn brake pads (which occur when the brake pedal is pressed), this symptom is more likely to be heard when the brakes are not being used.

    What causes calipers to go bad?

    A leading cause for damaged calipers, however, stems from driving a vehicle on worn-out pads or warped rotors. … If the pads fail to insulate the caliper from excessive heat, the piston can be damaged or the heat can be passed through the piston to the brake fluid, which can cause it to degrade.
