Brake Repair & Service by European Repair in Franklin

When you need a European repair shop that you can trust with your family’s safety, bring your vehicle to Advanced European Repair, where we’re all about cars, safety, driving experience, and peace of mind about all the systems on your vehicle, including the brake system. Your vehicle’s brake system is not just another system on your vehicle; it is a crucial safety feature that requires professional brake repair & service.

Signs Your Vehicle’s Brakes Need Attention

Most people realize that when they hear the brakes squeaking, it’s time to replace them. The signs you need to replace the brakes include:

Squeaking and Squealing

Brake pads have a metal tab that is attached to the backing plate. It rides vertically alongside the pad. When the pad wears to a height equal to the metal tab, the pad material is worn to a thinness that is no longer safe. The tab rubs against the rotor to make that squealing noise to warn you it’s time to change the pads. If you ignore the noise or simply don’t hear it, the tab continues rubbing the rotor, scoring it. If the pad wears down to the metal backing plate, you may hear grinding noises instead of squealing.

When the pads wear down to the backing plate, there is nothing left to stop your vehicle. In addition to decreased stopping power, the thin pads could cause the calipers to overextend and the brake hoses to collapse.

Vibrations or Pulsations

If you feel a vibration or pulsation in the brake pedal, you may have one or more warped rotors. They can warp if they get too thin or if heavy braking heats them too much while they are thinner. You need to replace warped rotors immediately, as they significantly affect your braking distance.

Soft or Spongy-Feeling Brake Pedal

If the brakes feel soft or spongy when stepping on them, you most likely have a brake fluid leak or air got into the brake line. Since the brake system is a closed system, if there’s air in there, the brake fluid may be low, or you may have a leak in a brake line, brake hose or the master cylinder.

Dashboard Warning Lights

When the brake light or ABS light on the dashboard illuminates, they are signaling there’s a problem in the system somewhere. Don’t risk your safety by driving. Instead, tow your vehicle to Advanced European Repair for a brake inspection.

Brake Repair & Services at Advanced European Repair in Franklin, MA

We offer comprehensive brake repair & services at AER in Franklin, including:

  • Brake Inspections: Whenever you come in for service, repairs or preventative maintenance, we conduct a brake inspection, which is crucial to catch issues early. We examine the pads, rotors, calipers, brake lines, and hoses, and the master cylinder to look for damage, leaks, and worn components.
  • Brake Pad Replacement: When we replace the brake pads on your vehicle, we use only quality pads, so you have the stopping power you need.
  • Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement: Generally, you only need to replace the rotors every other time you replace the pads on most vehicles. Some vehicles use composite rotors that require replacement every time. If we don’t have to replace the rotors, we can machine them to give them a smooth surface so the new pads have plenty of gripping power to slow and stop the vehicle.
  • ABS Brake Repair: Advanced European Repair has the diagnostic equipment to diagnose and repair the anti-lock braking system (ABS).
  • Brake Fluid Flush: Brake fluid is crucial to the brake system’s function. Over time, it becomes contaminated with moisture, which makes brake fluid ineffective. Flushing the brake system ensures you only have fresh, new brake fluid for the best stopping power.
