Brake Repair

Brake Repair Cathedral City

If you feel like your brakes are no longer responsive, too mushy, or start to squeal upon the lightest tap of the pedals, you should drop by Davies Auto Care and get a quality brake repair service. Getting your brakes serviced is very important and should not be delayed. A defective break is very dangerous and could lead to fatal accidents.

There is a need to understand the brakes a little bit more outside of just knowing that they make your car stop. There are many types of brakes available for cars, but they usually fall into one of three categories: drum brakes, disc brakes, and anti-lock brakes. All three categories of brakes use the same principle to halt your car, but they use different technologies.

If you want your brakes to stay healthy for a long time, there are a few things that you need to pay attention to:

  • Brake Pressure – you can tell that you have a problem when the brake pedal falls too low when applying pressure, or if it requires more force to push down compared to its normal behavior. It might be a sign that you have contamination in the brake fluid. The brake fluid is usually in a vacuum sealed environment, but it is possible for rust and air to get in if you have problems somewhere else.
  • Noisy Brakes – if the brakes make a lot of noise during use, you can tell that there is a problem. The noises you have to watch out for include low groans, sharp whines, and even “clunk” sounds. Noises are very serious signs, as they point to your brakes being worn down. If you experience these signs on your brakes, you need to take your car to Davies Auto Care immediately.
  • Grabbing or Pulling of Brakes – your brakes should be responsive enough that releasing the pedal should immediately allow the wheels to spin safely. If the brakes are still holding even after releasing the pedal, you may have failing brake pads or a damaged brake disc.

Regardless of the type of brakes you are using, Davies Auto Care is fully qualified to repair or replace them. Our brake repair service will ensure that your vehicle will have a smooth, responsive brake system that will put your vehicle to a smooth and complete stop every time you need it to. We can also help you with other problems such as air conditioning repair.

If your brakes are too worn down or broken enough that driving is no longer safe or possible, you can give us a call and we can help arrange for a towing service.
