Brake Service, Brake Repair at Raul's Auto Repair In Azusa
Most Azusa drivers know that braking means slowing or stopping a vehicle. The mechanical aspects of the brakes themselves are just one issue. There’s also the power brake system and brake fluid. And then there are the tires, which are critical to the effectiveness of the brakes.
Let’s step back. A car or truck rolls brand new off the showroom floor at a local Azusa dealer. It has brand new brakes with brand new brake pads. The brake lines and the power assist are filled with fresh fluid and are completely clean inside. And the pickup tires are brand new, with full tread. Naturally, braking power is at its peak performance.
Now, as your drive from Azusa to Arcadia and back, the miles start to add up. Most Azusa car owners tend to focus on the brake pads. In the Azusa automotive service community, the pads, and shoes on drum brakes, are called the friction material. That’s because they provide the friction used to stop the pickup. The pads are designed to be effective throughout their useful life – it’s not until they are worn so thin as to be out of spec that they lose stopping effectiveness.
The mechanical parts of the brakes have pistons and springs that get quite a workout while stopping the pickup. Over many miles, these wear and get gummed up. They start to lose effectiveness gradually and could even fail. That’s why a regular brake inspection is important. At Raul’s Auto Repair, we can test the operation of the brakes and see if any parts need cleaning or replacing.
That leads us to brake fluid service at Raul’s Auto Repair. Some of the critical additives in the fluid that lubricate and clean the pickup fluid system are depleted over time. That and moisture building up in the system deteriorate the performance of the brake fluid. Brake fluid replacement at Raul’s Auto Repair includes flushing the brake system to clean out deposits, water and dirt. Then the system is filled up with fresh fluid.
