Brakes Are The Key To Proper Safety
It’s easy to feel like the most important car maintenance is all about keeping things moving, but proper care of your brakes is vital to the health of your car and your family. At AAMCO in Venice, Florida, we understand how important your safety is.
We perform free brake inspections that review your entire brake system including pads/shoes, hydraulic fluids, rotor/drum wear, calipers and wheel cylinders, brake hardware, hoses and lines, master cylinder, and, if you have one, the anti-lock brake system (ABS). If you experience any warning signs like grinding, squealing, or a sticking sensation when you depress your brake pedal, bring your car in for an inspection today. We can replace worn pads and shoes, repack wheel bearings, lubricate components, replace rotors and drums, replace your brake fluid, adjust any problems with your parking brake, and perform a road test to be sure everything is in order.

Disc brakes will have a rotor attached to the wheel and a caliper to hold them. They operate by hydraulic pressure delivered by the master cylinder that clamps the disc brake rotor between the pads with the caliper piston. This is where the friction you need to stop comes from.
