Brake Repair in Roanoke, Texas
Keeping your brakes in top shape are paramount to your car’s safety. If your brakes are not in optimal working order, you’re putting the lives of yourself and any of your passengers at risk. When you start to notice any brake noises like squeaking, squealing, or grinding, call and make an appointment with Scotty’s Automotive Repair to look at your brake system and we can diagnose the problem for you.
Unlike other car components, there is really no clear-cut schedule for replacing your brake system. One of the best things you can do for your car is to periodically look at your brake pads and see if they are still good. There are a couple of straightforward ways to do this.
One simple way is to look and examine your brake pads. They can easily be seen through the wheel. Look at the thickness of the brake pad. If it looks like it’s less than ¼ of an inch and very thin, that’s an indication that it’s time for new brake pads. Some brake pads have an wear indicator slot in the middle of the brake pad. If it’s almost gone, then they need replaced.
Brake repairs are costly and are much more labor intensive, so it’s extremely important to both your car and your wallet to keep up on your brake maintenance. Let Scotty’s Automotive Repair handle any of your brake needs and schedule a brake check today!
