Brake Inspection is required for yearly State Inspection, but you should have your brakes checked every time your mechanic pulls off your wheels. Simple maintenance can prevent more serious problems down the line:

  • A clean set of brakes are less likely to squeak
  • Cutting brake rotors can prevent warping and pulsating
  • Checking your brake fluid will ensure you don’t have any leaks in the system
  • Replacing your brake pads when needed can help prevent more expensive replacements
  • Brake fluid flushes can prevent a more expensive caliper replacement.

When Do You Need Brake Service?

It’s important to regularly have your brakes checked, but there are also a number of warning signs that mean it’s time to call Tommy’s.  These signs include:

  • The brake dashboard light is yellow/amber, which may indicate a problem with the anti-lock brake system
  • The brake dashboard light is res, which indicates a system imbalance
  • You hear a grinding or squealing noise when braking
  • The brake pedal is slow to respond or “spongy”
