Brake Repair in Albany, CA
Brake repair (or at a minimum brake pad replacement) is a recurring necessity. It does not matter whether you drive a lively Mini Cooper or a 6000 lb. Nissan Armada Platinum - brake pads will wear out, brake fluid will need to be changed, brake line replacement will grow more urgent as they age. Adams Autoworx is Albany’s brake repair specialist for all Japanese and European vehicles.
Bay Area driving is tough on brakes – hills, stop-and-go traffic, air laden with ocean and bay moisture – they all take heavy toll on the brakes. Whether you vehicle has disc brakes or drum brakes, you should plan on regular brake service and repairs.
At Adams Autoworks Albany, our nationally ASE certified technicians can diagnose, service, and repair any brake issue you vehicle may encounter - hydraulic brake fluid flush, failing brake calipers, power brake booster issues, disc brake service, brake master cylinder problems, electronic anti-lock brake sensors, drum brake repair, and of course the most popular brake service – brake pad replacement. Brake repairs provided at our Albany auto repair shop can usually be completed the same day.
Symptoms that tell you it’s time to take your vehicle to a professional auto repair shop include:
- the brake dashboard light glows amber, warning you there are problems with the anti-lock brake system (ABS)
- grinding or constant squealing during braking
- the brake pedal is spongy or slow to respond
- the brake dashboard light glows red
The most commons brake services we perform are: brake pad replacement, brake shoe replacement, brake rotor replacement, brake hose and line replacement, brake drums replacement, and brake fluid flush – brake fluid is hygroscopic ( it attracts and absorbs moisture from the air). Over time its water content grows so high that is starts to corrode parts of the brake system – that’s why we recommend brake fluid flush every 2-3 years, depending on the vehicle you drive.
