Brake Service and Repair Services

One of the most crucial components of your car is its brake system. If you are seeing a brake light warning on your dashboard, or you hear a grinding or squealing sound when you apply the brakes, chances are it’s time for a brake or brake component replacement.

At AAMCO of Oakland, our trained repair technicians provide a variety of brake services, including:

  • Brake shoe and pad replacement
  • Rotor and drum resurfacing and replacement
  • Parking brake adjustment
  • Brake fluid replacement
  • Mounting point and slide lubrication
  • Wheel cylinder and caliper inspections and repair

The service life for your brakes will generally extend between 30,000 to 70,000 miles, but there are a number of factors that affect how often you’ll need to service or replace them. Brakes are exposed to heat, friction, and pressure each time you get behind the wheel. Frequent stops and starts and driving in heavy traffic, in addition to individual driving habits affect a brake system’s lifespan.

Here are the signs that could indicate your brakes or one of its components need replacing:

  • Your car pulls to one side when braking.
  • The brake pedal vibrates or pulsates.
  • You hear a high-pitched screech.
  • There is a grinding or growling noise when you apply the brakes.
  • Brakes are not as responsive, or the brake pedal goes to floor before the brakes will engage.
  • You notice a puddle of fluid, similar to motor oil, after your car has been parked for a period of time.
