GTM Brake Inspection
Let’s not forget about the cars and trucks that have a little more millage and need new calipers. Greg The Mechanic changes most calipers in half an hour that’s right half an hour. We also have access to complete brake assemblies for all makes and models within minutes. We carefully inspect all lines and hoses that support your vital braking system. After inspection, it is common for rust to grow on the bracket(s), slowing brake fluid flow. Your complete braking system must be safe for you and your family. It does not leave our service bay until it receives Greg The Mechanic’s stamp of approval.
Brake Inspection Example
Here we are opening a bracket for further testing. Greg The Mechanic services these hoses to add life to your brakes Every little bit helps to keep your car on the road a little safer and longer.
Another problem we see a lot of at Greg The Mechanic is rear drum brakes not getting serviced properly. This causes the brake pedal to feel lower to the floor or they may squeak. You may also encounter other annoying noises that no one likes hearing.
It’s easy to do this job, we start by sanding a bit. Then we wash the brake shoes and springs. they are held in place with brake clean. Next, we lube behind the brake shoes with a little bit of brake grease. This is done by slightly lifting the shoes off the backing. Then applying brake grease to the area that the shoes sit on.
It only needs a bit of brake grease, too much and you end up with grease in undesirable areas. Now we get the brake drum and service it again, sanding the inside of the drum to remove the ridge on the edge of the drum. It is very important to remove becasue that ridge prevents you from adjusting the brakes properly.
Your rear brake parts are cleaned the drum has been serviced and the nasty ridge removed. Now we adjust the brakes a little at a time until there is only a small space between the shoes a drums. At this point we adjust them until there is a slight drag in the brakes. We may have to back it off to eliminate the drag. In rear brake drum systems this is a fine adjustment. Adjusting your rear brakes can sometimes be time consuming. Once again, your vehicle does not leave until it’s stamped with approval.
Sometimes all it takes is a hourly labor charge to keep them serviced. This way your brakes are in great working order, ALWAYS.
ALWAYS, good work at a fair price … we all win!
