Car, Truck & SUV Brake Service in Summerlin, Las Vegas
Obviously, the job of brakes is to slow the vehicle's motion. What many people don't know is that it's done through friction. The friction creates a high amount of heat, wear and tear on the associated components. Ensuring that your brakes are in proper working order requires frequent inspections and replacement when necessary. There are two major systems involved in the braking of your car: hydraulic and mechanical. When you need brake repair in Las Vegas, the professionals here at Red Rock Repair are the trusted choice in the area.
It's crucial that these two systems work together to guarantee proper performance of your braking system. Most modern cars use pads and rotors as friction material. Over the life of the vehicle, the pads and rotors will wear down and require replacement/servicing. Sometimes this may be indicated by excessive noise or grinding; while other times it's a brake warning light on your dashboard. Regardless of the symptom, it's something that has to be addressed in a timely fashion, to avoid a safety concern. Brake service in North Las Vegas is recommended as soon as you notice an issue.
Disc Pads and Rotor Repair in Las Vegas
There is no specific mileage indication for replacing your pads and rotors; it’s all dependent upon your driving habits. Disc brake service consists of replacing the pads with the correct type and compound, and resurfacing or replacing the rotors. Just as your pad wears down from usage, so does your rotor. Often there is not enough material remaining to allow for resurfacing. Rotor replacement is also recommended in cases of warpage or heat damage (also known as glazing).
Drum Brakes and Shoe Repair in Las Vegas
Just like disc brakes, drum brakes wear out requiring servicing. Service consists of replacing the brake shoes and hardware where needed, resurfacing or replacing the drum, and adjustment. Sometimes all that drum brakes require to get back to proper working order is a cleaning and adjustment, and not a full replacement of all components.
Brake Hydraulic System Repair in Las Vegas
The hydraulic system consists of the master cylinder, brake lines, and calipers (for disc brakes) or wheel cylinders (for drum brakes). A leak or air anywhere in the hydraulic system means your brakes aren’t functioning properly. A symptom of this is the feeling of a spongy pedal or finding brake fluid anywhere on the vehicle (as it’s a closed system). Any problems within the hydraulic system need to be addressed immediately to maintain safety of the vehicle.
Brake Fluid Flush in Las Vegas
Brake fluid is probably the most overlooked fluid in your vehicle. Most manufacturers recommend replacing fluid every 2-5 years, regardless of mileage. As brake fluid ages, it absorbs water making your brakes less effective. The high heat generated by braking systems also breaks down the brake fluid, requiring replacement. Service consists of replacing all fluid and bleeding the system to ensure there is no trapped air. Red Rock Repair is your source for brake service in Las Vegas.
ABS Diagnostics in Las Vegas
For most drivers, one of the scariest lights on your dashboard to come on is the ABS/brake light. Today’s complicated anti lock brake systems require high tech diagnostic equipment to properly diagnose problems. A critical aspect of the ABS is understanding how all of the components work together to stop your vehicle, especially in an emergency. All of the components have to be working properly, including control modules, ABS pump/solenoids and wheel speed sensors, to ensure proper function. Our shop offers the best brake repair in Las Vegas, so bring your vehicle into our experts as soon as you suspect an issue.
