Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Hannah's Mastertek, Inc will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Hannah's Mastertek, Inc as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Hannah's Mastertek, Inc about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Hannah's Mastertek, Inc where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Great crew and solid work. They found out my alternator was days away from dying when they changed my oil. I'd been smelling something funny for a while and they handled it right away. Good price too on a VW that's normally really expensive.
Mike and his team are awesome. Great total service. Honest and up front. Affordable. A must try.
The staff here is really friendly and personable. I have been here a few times to get some calibration work done on my car. I have been impressed with the timeliness of the work and the professionalism they have shown me. They once really went out of their way to help me get my car home while I was unable to get there. I recommend this garage based on their stellar customer service.
You guys were great , very professional and organized . I will definitely recommend you guys to my friends.
It was great , i felt like i knew the people there and they were there to help me. The problem was checked and solutions were given clear and simple.
Fantastic Awesome crew. Kept in touch throughout the diagnostic process, gave me a realistic quote & were up front about their findings, no hidden stuff for me to find out about later. Awesome recommendation about what solutions I had available, & even offered a discounted price on the diagnostic for me being referred by a family member. Definitely would recommend!
