Brake F.A.Q

We’re automotive repair experts with a penchant for putting a stop to faulty brakes. You have questions, and we have answers on the braking system in your vehicle.

What's in a brake system?

Your braking system contains the following key components:

  • Brake Pedal: Begins the braking process.
  • Rotors: Also known as brake discs; stop your wheels when squeezed by your brake pads.
  • Brake Pads: Squeeze the rotors.
  • Brake Pistons: Push the brake pads against the rotors with hydraulic fluid

There’s a lot more to your braking system, including brake cylinders, drums, shoes, and more. Every time you hit the brake pedal, you start a process that appears to offer results immediately.

How do brakes work?

It seems easy:

  • You step on your brake pedal.
  • Your car stops.

In reality, it’s a lot more complex than that. When you step on your brake pedal, the brake fluid carries the force of your step to your brakes. You actually can’t create enough force by yourself to slow your tires. Instead, your vehicle helps you by using leverage and manipulating hydraulic force. Your brakes then transmit the force to your tires using friction.

Why are my brakes squeaking?

Your metal rotors are vibrating. Common reasons include the weather (dust and humidity), type of material used in the brake pads (which squeeze the rotor), and age. It could also be a mouse with uncanny squeak timing. We can’t rule this out until you visit us.

Keep in mind squeaking is often due to something simple. Bring your vehicle over to our shop and our professionals will let you know, so you can stop worrying. We can also make it so you stop hearing that squeak or squeal each time you press the pedal.

What causes brakes to wear out quickly?

Premature brake wear has multiple causes that often involve the rotors, including:

  • Cleanliness Level: Clean rotors and pads perform better and for longer than dirty ones. Even new rotors need to be cleaned first to remove any contaminates.
  • Proper Break-in: Rotors and pads need to be broken in properly for you to get the most out of them. This is especially important today, since more light weight materials are being used in the two parts.
  • Correct Thickness: Over time, rotors lose thickness. Driving with a skinny rotor can cause braking problems.

Fortunately, our team knows how to install brake components right and can easily pinpoint any of these problems if they are currently plaguing your vehicle. With proper installation of rotors, pads, calipers, and other parts, your brakes won’t wear quickly.

Remember, being able to stop your vehicle is just as important as making it go. Larry's Complete Tire & Auto is a professional brake repair shop for a reason. Get in contact with us today, and break away from your brake problems. Call, visit, or contact us online now.
