Cunningham’s Automotive Repair provides a range of repair services for both import and domestic automotive brake systems at our shop in Ottsville. The components in the automotive brake system are not designed to last for the life of your vehicle and wear down over time as you drive around. The pads/shoes are the most common brake replacement service we do at our shop. This is because every time you press down on your pedal, the brake pad material wears down against the brake rotor/drum. If the brake pads wear down and become too thin, the underlying metal surface of the pads will come in contact with your brakes’ metal rotors. This situation will not only result in an unsafe condition but will also require additional service and increase your brake repair cost.
Here are some signs that there may be a problem with your brakes:
- Your pedal is low or soft when you push down
- Your pedal is hard when you push down
- Your brake warning light comes on and stays on
- Brakes constantly squeal and grind
- Vibrations or clunking sounds come from your vehicle when you apply your brakes
If you are experiencing any of these signs, it’s time to stop into Cunningham’s Automotive Repair for a brake inspection! A brake inspection will also include a check of your brake fluid. When the brakes are applied, the pressure in the fluid activates the brake pads or shoes- not enough fluid means not enough pressure to brake properly. You should have your brake fluid changed when your manufacturer recommends it to avoid these problems.
We can provide you with a brake problem diagnosis that will give you service options and a brake repair cost estimate. Our technicians specialize in everything from brake rotor servicing to brake cylinder and pad replacement, as well as problems with Anti-lock Brake Systems.
