Let's Work Together
Brake service is a term for everything that has to do with your brakes. A specialist will perform a brake inspection first to ensure that all components are in good operating order. Your mechanic will inspect your brake pads, rotors, clips, and calipers to ensure that everything is in working condition.
Truck brakes are meant to wear out over time. Friction material is used to make brake pads and shoes, which is softer than the braking rotors or drums they press against. The friction material wears down after thousands of miles and countless stops, and it needs to be changed. It’s usually referred to as a brake job.
However, brake repairs need more than just replacing brake pads. The rotors and drums on your brakes may get deformed, causing a shimmy or vibration. Brake hoses and lines could be broken, resulting in a leak. Alternatively, your vehicle’s ABS light may illuminate, revealing a serious risk for safe driving.
The most common cause of a brake system malfunction is brake fluid loss. If your car has a brake fluid leak, it will be visible underneath it. If you find a leak, we recommend not driving the vehicle until the leak is repaired and the fluid is replaced for safety reasons.
The following are some indicators that your brakes need to be serviced or repaired:
- You can hear a grinding sound when you come to a stop
- When braking, the vehicle pulls to one side.
- When traveling on the highway, the car wobbles or vibrates.
- When braking down hills, the brake pedal or steering wheel begins to vibrate
- The brake pedal is mushy or weaker than usual
- When you step on the brake pedal, you should hear a screech, scrape, grind, or clicking sound
- You constantly add brake fluid to the master cylinder
- If your car’s brake fluid is leaking
- Odors or noises that are out of the ordinary
- While driving or stopping, the ABS and/or brake lights are activated.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock brake systems (ABS) keep the wheels from locking up during braking, preventing the automobile from skidding and giving you more control. If your ABS light comes on, bring your vehicle to Ibex Incorporated, where we will gladly diagnose and repair the issue.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement Service
Squeaky or screaming brakes are a common sign that brake pads need to be replaced. You’ll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking if your brake pads are entirely worn out, which means it’s too late and you’re damaging your rotors or drums! We urge that you take your vehicle to the specialists as soon as you notice any problems.
Flushing Brake Fluid Service
Brake fluid absorbs water from the air over time, causing the brake fluid to become less efficient. Corrosion of the brake line fluid is also a possibility. A brake fluid flush is advised on a regular basis to avoid brake line difficulties and to ensure that your brakes always work properly when you need them. When it’s time for a brake fluid cleanse, talk to our professionals at Ibex Truck Service and – Diesel Repair.
Rotors are a component of disc brake systems that are mounted to the wheels. The rotor and wheels will come to a stop as the brake pads clamp on the rotor. Friction, on the other hand, generates grooves and cracks over time, as well as heat that can deform the rotors and cause a vibration when braking. Resurfacing the rotors will restructure them and restore their functionality. Your rotors will be thoroughly inspected by our trained mechanics, and the best course of action will be recommended.
A brake hose is a rubber tube that runs from the master cylinder to the brakes, carrying pressurized brake fluid. The failure of the entire brake system might be caused by a leak in a brake hose. At the first sign of cracking or deterioration, these should be changed immediately.
Caliper Replacement Service
The brake caliper is a vital component of the brake system. It is responsible for holding the brake pads in place as well as clamping the rotors. When you apply the brake pedal, it presses the brake pads against the brake rotors. Uneven braking can be caused by a brake caliper malfunction, which causes your automobile to pull to one side as you brake. In poor weather, uneven braking might cause your vehicle to slip out of control, so call Ibex Truck Service and Repair as soon as possible to have it repaired.
