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. A. Anthony's Mobile Vehicle Service 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 A. Anthony's Mobile Vehicle Service 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 A. Anthony's Mobile Vehicle Service 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 A. Anthony's Mobile Vehicle Service Inc. where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
What People Say About Us
I recently used A. Anthony's for repairs to my vehicle. Genette, the General Manager, was courteous, professional, thorough and thoughtful. I had to leave my car for service and Genette gave me a ride home and offered to pick me up if I needed a ride back to the repair shop. She went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and answered all my questions in detail. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of service that I received. She treated me with the utmost respect.
I would highly recommend A. Anthony's for your vehicle service needs.
Had a problem wt my Motor home and they came to me and quickly diagnosed the problem and returned the next week to replace the starter at the site. Back up and running quickly. Costs were fair and competitive, however the service and making arrangements around my schedule made all the difference. Relieved the stress associated with my mechanical issue. I will use their service again - this time drive to them
