Brake System Repair

Brake Repair

Brake Repair Northwest Arkansas The most common type of brake repair is brake pad replacement. A disc brake system involves the use of calipers that grip the brake rotors in order to stop the vehicle. Brake pads provide a friction surface that is applied to the rotor but will not harm the rotor. If you notice changes in the amount of pressure required to slow down or stop, a squealing noise as you are driving or a grinding noise when you brake your pads are likely worn out. A slight vibration may also be noticeable.  All of these are signs that your brake pads need replacing, so you should make an appointment right away to have brake repair performed on your vehicle. If you don't maintain your brake system and brake pads, you will wear out your rotors more quickly. Worn brake rotors can significantly decrease your ability to slow down or stop when you need to. It may feel as if you are pumping your brakes when trying to slow down, because of to much clearance between the brake pads and brake rotors. In addition, worn brake rotors can affect your ability to maintain control of your vehicle. The rotors can become warped because they don't wear evenly when the pads are worn, or worn brake pads can cause excessive heat which can cause brake rotors to warp. When this happens it will cause your steering wheel to vibrate when you brake and this affects your entire suspension system in a negative way or can even cause lose of control of your vehicle. Your steering wheel may vibrate so vigorously that you can lose your grip on the wheel, or your steering can be affected by the vibrations. Braking when you are driving fast can also be affected by shaking and shuddering of the suspension, which could put you at risk of having an accident. Replacing brake rotors is one of more expensive types of brake repairs, and replacing brake pads before they wear out completely will help prevent premature wear on brake rotors.

Brake System Repair

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) is an automobile safety system that allows the wheels on a motor vehicle to maintain traction control preventing the wheels from locking up (ceasing rotation) and avoiding uncontrolled skidding. This is an automated braking system that uses the principles of threshold braking and cadence braking which were practiced by skillful drivers with previous generation braking systems. It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than a driver could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control and decreases stopping distances on dry and slippery surfaces for many drivers; however, on loose surfaces like gravel or snow-covered pavement, ABS can significantly increase braking distance, although still improving vehicle control. Since initial widespread use in production cars, anti-lock braking systems have been improved considerably. Recent versions not only prevent wheel lock when braking, but also electronically control the front-to-rear brake bias. This function, depending on its specific capabilities and implementation, is known as electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control system, emergency brake assist, or electronic stability control (ESC). Tim’s Automotive has the equipment and experience to maintain and perform brake system repair.
