What is the Brake System?

  • Brake System Components: Brake rotors (discs), calipers, brake pads, brake drums, brake shoes, brake fluid, and related hardware.
  • Function: The brake system slows down or stops the vehicle by creating friction. This is either between brake pads and rotors (in disc brakes) or brake shoes and drums (in drum brakes).
  • Brake Fluid: Brake fluid sends braking force from the brake pedal to the brake components. It lubricates the parts, prevents corrosion, and maintains performance. Completing regular maintenance and replacing your brake fluid is important.

What Brake Services Do We Offer?

  • Brake System Inspection: Do you think it's time for new brakes? Our Technicians will examine all brake components to identify any potential concerns. This includes: brake pads, rotors, calipers, and fluid levels. For vehicles with a brake drum system they will examine the drums and shoes as well. Our vehicle inspections are digital. This means your Service Advisor will share photos with you via email or text. They will share recommendations for any repairs or maintenance.
  • Brake Pad Replacement: It's important to ensure your brake pads do not become worn out. Thin brake pads are not as effective at making sure your vehicle stops. We use high-quality brake pads to provide you with long-lasting performance and reliability.
  • Brake Caliper Replacement: Faulty brake calipers can affect your braking performance. During the Brake Inspection we will determine if you need to replace the brake calipers. By replacing your brake calipers, we provide balanced braking and prevent uneven wear.
  • Brake Rotor Resurfacing: It may be possible to resurface your rotors rather than replace them. We will determine this during the Brake Inspection. If possible, we use our resurfacing machine to restore your brake rotors to a smooth, even surface. This will extend the lifespan of your rotors and save you money by replacing them later down the road.
  • Brake Rotor Replacement: If your brake rotors are too worn or damaged, we can replace your brake rotors instead. We install high-quality rotors to give your vehicle reliable and effective braking power. Learn more about Brake Rotors here in this blog: What is Rotor Resurfacing?
  • Brake Drum & Brake Shoe Replacement: Does your vehicle have a drum brake system? We can service your vehicle as well! Our brake drum and brake shoe services will help your vehicle stop smooth and safe again. During the Brake Inspection our Technicians will determine which parts are worn out. We will replace any worn or damaged brake drums and shoes with high-quality parts.
  • Brake Fluid Replacement: You can maintain smooth and responsive braking with our Wynn's brake fluid service. We will remove the old brake fluid and replace it with fresh, high-quality fluid. This helps to prevent corrosion and ensure optimal brake performance.
  • Emergency Parking Brake Repair: Do you have concerns with your parking brake? Our emergency parking brake service will provide you with security and peace of mind.
  • Brake System Diagnostics: Do you have concerns about your braking system? Get accurate brake system diagnostics from our Technicians. During the diagnostic service we take photos and write notes about our findings. We share our digital inspection with you for full transparency.
