Whether your brakes need an assessment, a repair, or a replacement, Clark Automotive will provide you with outstanding service at an affordable price. Located just a few minutes for Circle Pines.
The Braking System
When you feel like something is wrong with your brakes it can still mean a variety of different things. The brake system is made up of a combination of different items. We will take a look at the actual brakes and ensure that they are in working order, but it could also just be another part of the brake system that needs replacement. Brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums and calipers are all part of the brake system.
Brake System Warning Signs
As you are driving your car, it’s important to keep an eye out for warning signs that your brakes need to be serviced. In most vehicles, there is a brake light that will appear on your dashboard. When this happens, it’s important to get checked right away. Other signs include feeling a grinding sensation as you are making a stop, hearing a squealing sound when you are driving or stopping, feeling like the brake pedal is further down towards the floor, or perhaps even feeling the vehicle pull to one side when you apply the brakes. All of these signs indicate that it’s time to let the professionals look at your vehicle.
Our Brake Repair Process
When you take your vehicle to us, you are taking it to highly trained and certified technicians that perform quality work every single time. We begin by doing a complete and thorough inspection of your car and its braking system. We look at the pads, shoes, wheel bearings, backing plate, and caliper anchor. We replace and lubricate these parts as needed. We will also add brake fluid and flush as needed (recommended every 30,000 miles). We inspect the hydraulic system, adjusting and evacuating air as needed and lastly, we check the drums and rotors and replace them as needed.
So, if you are having brake issues with your vehicle, and need a certified mechanic at an affordable price, contact Clark Automotive today at (763) 784-7944.
