What Does a Brake Repair Entail?

When you brake, your brake pads press against the brake rotor, creating friction which slows and stops the car. Over time brake pads can become worn down, leading to brake issues such as squealing, grinding and decreased stopping power. If you are experiencing any of these brake problems it’s time to visit a professional repair team. At Independent Vehicle Service in Albuquerque, brake repair is one of the many services we offer to keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently.

Change Pads

When you come in to repair your car's brakes, the first step is to replace your brake pads. Our technicians will assess the brake pad wear level and determine if replacement brake pads are needed. We use brake pads of the highest quality and will replace them with brake pads that match or exceed the original brake pad’s performance.

Check Brake Fluids

If you are looking to fix some squeaky brakes, it is important to check the brake fluid level. If the brake fluid is low, it can cause vibration in your brake pedal which can lead to brake noises. Our brake technicians will check the brake fluid and top off the brake fluid if necessary to ensure that your brakes are running smoothly.

Adjust Brakes

After the brake pads have been replaced and the brake fluid has been checked, our team of brake specialists will adjust your brakes. This process involves making sure that the calipers are properly aligned and that the brake pads are the right distance away from the rotor. This ensures that your brakes are working properly and that your car will stop when you need it to.
