Brake Repair Wilmington

"Why do my brakes make noise when I stop?" One of the reasons could that your brakes have worn themselves in to the "brake rotors" causing you to have a very violent grinding sound when stopping. This is caused when the friction (brake pads) have worn past their material and now the rotor is contacting the brake pad backing plate. "Metal to metal" is a very common term used to describe this condition. 

"Seized brake calipers" can also be a cause of premature brake wear. Calipers are basically like a hydraulic press that operate when you press on the brake pedal. Brake fluid is pushed to the caliper pistons to "squeeze" the brake pads against the brake rotors. This causes you to stop. When a caliper doesn't release that pressure, brake pads may continue to contact the rotor (which is always turning) and wear down. This causes excessive heat, drag and loss of fuel mileage.

It's recommended that at least once a year your brake system (calipers, hoses, springs, hardware and retainers) should be inspected, cleaned and lubricated for proper maintenance and good braking.

Stop in or call for next brake inspection or service. There's nothing like having the confidence of good brakes under your feet when you really need it.

What Our Clients Say

Excellent service!! Staff very polite and courteous with up to date information regarding how the work is progressing. Their pre purchase check up is the best. They take pictures of all problem areas, give a detailed report of what needs to be done immediately or can wait, and explained why. Best of all respected my decision of what work I wanted to have done. They gave me a time it would be ready and they delivered. This car now runs and handles like brand new and instead of selling it I'm keeping it! I would recommend them to anyone who asked, especially if they were looking for a thorough evaluation.
