Your safety is important to us. One of the many causes of accidents is problems with the brakes of a car. Brakes repair is another one of our most common minor repairs. Brakes make the car slow down and stop. These functions are just as important as making the car move forward. While we do assess the brakes during the routine maintenance check as part of the full service oil change, we can also do brakes repair if we do find any problems. If the brakes are broken or not working to their full capability, this could result in serious damage to the car and/or passengers. It is dangerous to be in a car with inefficient brakes. While it may be devastating for a person to lose their car, it would be even more devastating for a person to get hurt in an accident because their brakes weren’t working properly. We replace Passat rotors and do shoes and drums in the back of the car, depending on the model of the car. A drum brake uses friction caused by a set of shoes, or pads, that press against a rotating drum-shaped part. This is called a brake drum due to its appearance. We can also replace calipers. Calipers are important for your car's ability to brake. The calipers create friction in the rotors and cause the car to slow down and eventually stop. We also inspect and replace brake lines if they are leaking or broken. At Redford Auto Repair of Taylor we also provide brake fluid testing and replacement. The brake fluid is important because it lubricates the portions of the brake system and prevents corrosion. It is important that you replace your brake fluid every so often to keep your brakes efficient. Our mechanics also replace master cylinders which are an essential part of the brake system. Basically, when it comes to brakes, we can repair and replace almost anything that needs to be repaired or replaced. We have certified mechanics who focus on brake repair so you can feel safe leaving your car in our hands. We make sure our customers are fully satisfied before leaving our doors. Before we start work on your vehicle we will make sure we completely understand your brake concerns.
