Brake Services for Ford Vehicles
Educate yourself on proper brake services to maintain the life span and safety of your Ford.
Brake Services are an essential part of automotive maintenance and driving safety. Neglecting to schedule regular mechanical check-ups on your vehicle’s brake system can potentially lead to serious safety concerns. If your car has worn brake pads or discs, it can cause damage to other more expensive components such as the rotors, drums and calipers which will ultimately cause car failure while driving. Be sure to service your vehicle between intervals and take notice of any signs or symptoms of issues.
How do I know if I need Brake Services?
Two ways to determine when Brake Services are needed are distinctive changes in the performance of your vehicle or a diagnosis from your local technician or mechanic. Some common indicators are…
- Shaky steering wheel
- Flashing brake warning light
- Grinding or squealing noises
- Increased stopping distance
Components of your Vehicle’s Brake System
There are many different parts of your vehicle’s brake system that work together to ensure your vehicle slows down and stops properly. The brake system consists of…
- Brake Pads
- Brake Caliper
- Brake Fluid
Brake Pads are contained in the Brake Caliper which is hydraulically clamped down onto the Rotor causing friction to slow/stop the vehicle. The Brake Fluid is used as hydraulic fluid to transfer force into pressure, and to amplify braking force.
