Owning a vehicle is much more than joy rides and getting to the office on time.

Brake Repair Shop St Paul

A fully functioning brake system is crucial to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. The brake system in your car involves highly engineered parts and precise movements that make your vehicle stop. When you press down on the brake pedal, the master cylinder pressurizes a system of hydraulic brake lines leading to each of the vehicle’s wheels, where brake pads or shoes press against a disc or drum. This creates the necessary friction needed to slow the vehicle to a complete stop, safely. Over time, the friction and heat has the potential to wear down the brake shoes, brake pads, calipers, brake rotors, and other braking components. When this happens you need to have your car looked at, and have your brakes repaired. Continue reading
