Brakes are one of the most important components of any vehicle. Should they fail, it could easily lead to catastrophic disaster, which is why brake maintenance is one of our most comprehensive auto services.
Brake rotors are measured for minimum thickness — if tolerances are acceptable, we machine the rotors. If the rotors are too thin or damaged to machine, we will call you and get authorization to install new rotors. We inspect the brake caliper for operation and leakage and replace if necessary. We clean and lube all brake caliper slides and pivot points, AND premium brake pads are installed. The wheel is then hand torqued to factory specs. We check the brake fluid level and road test the vehicle to assure a proper repair.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hydroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture. Moisture in the braking system leads to a spongy brake pedal and brake fade, while also wreaking havoc on tiny Antilock Brake System parts. You should change brake fluid every 24 months or 30,000 miles, whichever one comes first. At Savannah Car Care, we use a vacuum pump to remove the old brake fluid from the master cylinder. We then refill the master cylinder with fresh fluid and then vacuum bleed each wheel with the fresh brake fluid.
