Here are the types of repairs you can expect with brake repair and service appointment at Gold Wing Motors:
1.) Inspection & Potential Replacement of the Master Cylinder – Does your brake master cylinder need replacing? If the brake pedal sinks to the floor every time you hit the brakes, but then returns to the normal elevation when you step of the pedal, then yes.
If you have experienced this then you do need to have your master cylinder replaced soon. Problems with the master cylinder are often grave and can lead to total brake failure. Should your car suffer from this problem, your dashboard brake system warning signal will immediately light up.
2.) Replacement of the Brake Pads – Brake pads have the responsibility of creating friction with the wheels when you need the vehicle to stop. Due to the nature of their functionality, they should be expected to wear out with time. Normally, these pads will require replacing after every 40,000 miles. Such a replacement is bound to save you money down the line by preventing brake problems and ensuring the car stops when needed.
3.) Rotor Replacement – Every time you hit the brakes, the brake pads press onto the disc rotors to bring the car to a halt. Accordingly, disc rotors should be expected to wear out with continued use. When they do, replacement is the best option. Sometimes, the groves on the rotors can be removed to avoid total replacement but this temporary solution makes the rotors thinner.
