Brake Services

A system as complicated and important as your brake system demands ASE-certified service like ours. Perfectly functioning brakes are a must for your safety and for the safety of everyone around you on the road.

So why are brakes so complicated? Because they have many parts. In many cars, a disc brake first squeezes a brake pad against a rotor on the front wheels. In other cars, the back wheels also employ disc brakes. Others use drum brakes.

The brakes are then connected by a series of tubes and hoses that link each wheel to a master cylinder, which supplies them with brake fluid (hydraulic fluid). Each time you press your brake pedal, it creates pressure in the cylinder, which moves fluid toward the wheels and compresses the brakes. Like we said, brakes are complex, but they’re essential to your safety. If you need brake services in Raleigh, Durham,.
