Hemet Brake Service FAQs

Why are my brakes making a strange noise?

There are a few different noises that you might hear while pressing on your brakes. If you hear a grinding, this can be caused by metal-on-metal contact typically caused by the brake rotors or brake calipers grinding together. This is usually an indicator of severe wear or damage to your brakes. Another reason that you may hear a grinding noise is that there may be a loose object trapped in your brake rotors. If this is the case, you should hear an odd noise consistently while driving.

Any grinding noise should be taken seriously and brought into your local Hemet Ramona Tire & Service Centers to have your brakes serviced. Book an appointment today and let us repair or replace your brakes.

Why do I need regular brake service?

Your brakes are an essential part of your vehicle and are vital to the safe operation of your car or truck. Your brakes are the best defense against an accident or unsafe driving, and it is essential to ensure that they are functioning correctly. Every time you drive your vehicle, you use your brakes, and the wear and tear on the braking system is a natural process that requires regular brake service.

By having your car brakes serviced regularly, you can help keep them in good condition and help keep yourself, your passengers, and other drivers safe from an accident caused by brake failure. Here at our Hemet auto shop, we can maintain the health of your brakes and brake pads and keep you safe on the road. Bring your vehicle by today and let our team handle your regular brake service.

How can I make my brake pads last longer?

There are a few different ways to help your brakes last longer so that you can get the most out of them.

  • Let your car naturally slow down when possible. Your brake pads do not have to work as hard to stop your vehicle by letting the loss of momentum slow your vehicle.
  • Resist riding your brakes while driving downhill. You can prevent harsh wear on your brake pads and rotors by pumping your brakes or coasting.
  • Have your brakes regularly serviced and inspected. By letting a professional mechanic keep up with your brake repair, you can be certain that they are in good working condition and will not fail you when you need them.

What parts make up my vehicle’s braking system?

The braking system consists of:

  • Brake pads
  • Brake calipers
  • Brake rotors and/or drums
  • Brake lines and hoses
  • Brake wires
  • Wheel cylinders and master cylinder

With various moving parts that make your brakes function correctly, several components could go wrong or may need repair. It is vital to have your brakes regularly serviced to keep you safe on the road. Need brake repair in Hemet? Book an appointment at Ramona Tire & Service Centers.
