Comprehensive Brake Service for Cars in San Rafael
If it has been a while since your car’s brakes were last serviced, you may be living with weak stopping power, grinding noises and a pedal that just doesn’t push like it used to. At Neuhaus Service, Inc., we’ve been handling preventive car maintenance in San Rafael for more than 42 years, so you can trust us to take great care of your vehicle. No job starts without a thorough inspection. Before we turn another wrench, we’ll call to make sure you understand the service we recommend. Depending on your car’s needs, a brake service can include:
- Brake replacement
- Caliper replacement
- Line repair
- Pad replacement
- Shoe replacement
We can service cars with either a disc or drum configuration and do the majority of our work on vehicles’ anti-lock brake systems (ABS). Friction and heat cause grooves that can result in wobbly behavior, and we can resurface rotors in cases like these. Hoses are important for fluid conveyance and over time can become cracked or pinched. We can handle hose replacement to restore the pressurized flow of fluid between your car’s master cylinder and calipers. Finally, brake fluid can absorb water over time, reducing its performance and making the system susceptible to corrosion. Fluid flushes are recommended whenever this issue is observed.
Signs You Need an Auto Inspection
Here are some of the common symptoms of a brake problem:
- Unfamiliar sounds or vibrations while stopping.
- Pedal presses further down than normal or has a “spongy” feel.
- Vehicle pulls to one side while slowing down.
