Hi, there. This is Saul at Saul’s AUTOTEK. Welcome to 2019. And we’d like to welcome you to our facility if you haven’t been in before. If you have a vehicle that needs service, one of the most common services in the automotive industry is brake repair. You may notice that a lot of shops […]
Today we are going to talk about Brakes and why your brakes are such an important commodity? And why you see them advertise all over the place?
While we are here to fix your vehicles and we do get some entertainment, along with some stressors from the vehicles we service, we will always do whatever it takes to give you the most cost-effective auto and truck repair.
We are going to talk about your brakes and how you can best keep them in the best possible shape and at the same time keep your costs as low as possible.
Many locations, here in town, may tell you that they offer a brake special that’s the same price whether it’s a Nissan, a Honda, a Ford, a Chevy, a Dodge, as long as it’s a car. They’ll charge you the same amount of money, no matter what.
we’re going to talk a little bit about the way your brakes fail when they start to wear out. From the factory your vehicle’s brake pads are anywhere from five-to-10 millimeters thick.
One of the least inspected braking systems on your vehicle is typically the parking brake. As 90 percent of vehicles sold in North America come equipped with automatic transmissions, the majority of us don’t even use our parking brake anymore because we don’t think we need to.
The next brake rotor design we’re gonna look at is what we call a dual-plane or a vented rotor.
Now, this rotor has two separate sides with a slot between them that has angled vents, so as it rotates, air flow can cool the rotor much more efficiently.
The first brake rotor design that we’re going to look at is the original single-plane rotor. Now the design of this is pretty basic. In this case it has five bolt holes where it will slide on to the hub of the vehicle.
Hi there. I’m Saul here at Saul’s Automotive, and we’re gonna take a look today at a slightly more heavy duty for a medium to heavy duty truck or van, brake rotor, and braking capsulated hub design.
