Are you hearing some squeaking or noticing that it takes longer to stop? If so, then it might be time for a brake inspection. Your rotors, pads, and calipers take a beating during harsh weather conditions. The ice, snow, and dirt from the road can shorten the lifespan of brake components. That’s why it’s essential to perform regular maintenance. Our Deltona, FL area Jeep® dealers serving Mt. Dora use OEM parts to ensure that your vehicle stops on a dime every time.
How Do Brakes on a Jeep Wrangler Work?
Every time you hit the brake pedal, you set a few things into motion. The brake pedal tells the master brake cylinder you want to stop. The cylinder then relays that signal to the calipers at each tire. The calipers move the two brake pads against the spinning rotor, which stops your car. During this time, your brake fluid runs through lines under your vehicle to each tire so that all working parts can move freely.
With every push of your brake pedal, little bits of the brake parts get used, so tiny pieces of resin, fibers, and metal shavings rub off. Over time, your brake pads get smaller, and if you wait too long, to get them replaced, your caliper rubs against your rotor leading to more costly repairs.
Do I Need New Brakes?
If you perform an inspection at home, then you can look for scratches and uneven wear on each tire. Plus, you can check your brake fluid under the hood of your car. But, some wheels make it hard to see all of the brake components. That’s why Fields Chrysler Jeep® Dodge of Sanford offers a brake inspection along with various brake services.
