The Benefits of Brake and Rotor Service for Your Vehicle

Many models bearing the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram promote their performance, durability, and safety features. Parts, however, do wear down with age and use. Drivers need to stay on top of their brake system's condition. Brakes, rotors, and other components eventually require replacing. Our service department in West Branch near Cedar Rapids could assist CDJR drivers with brake inspections, repairs, and other services.

Brake Pads and Rotors

Two vital components of the brake system are the pads and rotors. Brake rotors are metal discs connected to the wheels. When a driver presses down on the brake pedal, the brake pads clamp down onto the rotors. The combination of pressure and friction from the brake pads causes the rotors to slow, which slows and stops the wheel.

Friction causes both the brake pads and rotors to wear out. When they become too worn, it becomes necessary to replace them at our dealership near Iowa City.

Other Components of the Brake System

All the parts in the brake system play vital roles in your journeys around Coralville. The master cylinder helps generate the necessary hydraulic pressure for the brakes to work. The brake calipers allow the brake pads to engage the rotors. Brake lines and hoses carry the brake fluid necessary for pressure.

Brake Replacement

When the brake pads and rotors suffer from wear, replacing them becomes necessary. A North Liberty-area technician may perform resurfacing work, but that depends on the condition. Other problems might lead to further brake work. Lines and hoses might leak. Brake pedals could be loose. After a thorough inspection, the technician could figure out what work to do.

How Do You Know When Brake Work Is Due

Review your owner's manual to see suggesting mileage points for a brake replacement. Have our technicians near Muscatine perform inspections when getting a tire rotation. Look out for problems, such as a pedal that goes to the floor, squealing, and other sounds when applying the brakes, inefficient stopping, and anything else out of the ordinary.

We encourage you to schedule a service appointment here at Brown's West Branch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to take care of your brakes and rotors. We look forward to working with you soon!
