Brake Service in Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham, Apex, and Carrboro
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. As we said, brakes are complex, but they’re essential to your safety. If you need brake services in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, or Carrboro, you can trust Chapel Hill Tire to give you an honest diagnosis and get you back on the road.
Common Brake Services
Most commonly, you will find your car needing brake pad replacements. Over time, the friction material wears away as your brake pads press against the rotors to slow and stop your vehicle. Signs your brake pads need replacing include squeaky and ineffective braking.
The process of your brake pads pressing against your rotors can cause this metal to warm up. Combined with the pressure of your brake pads, this process can warp your rotors over time, requiring rotor replacement. Every couple of years, your braking system will also need a brake fluid flush.
