Brake Repair & Servicing
Davenport and Quad Cities
Whether you need brake pads and rotors or it's time for brake service to ensure your safety while traveling the roadways, Dale's Service Center provides Davenport and the Quad Cities with exceptional products and services. Good brakes give you peace of mind knowing that your car will come to a complete stop whether at a traffic light, or in the event you encounter a pedestrian or animal in the roadway.
Why is regular brake service important? When your brake pads or brake rotors are worn out, you may not be able to slow or stop as quickly as you need to. Other components of your brake system include calipers and shoes, which should also be checked out by our professionals. Our dedicated mechanics will thoroughly inspect all aspects of your braking system including the brake fluid level. Should you need brake pad replacement or other repairs, we will take care of it so that you feel confident in your vehicle's ability to stop.
Do you have squeaky brakes? There are several reasons your disc brakes make a squeaking sound. One is worn brake pads, another is rusted brake rotors. Sometimes it is necessary to brake hard or slam on the brakes, which wears down the brake pads prematurely and could result in warped rotors and discs. If your brakes are making a squeaking sound, it's time for brake service.
Some of the signs that your car brakes may be in need of repair or service include:
- Vibration or shaking upon braking to stop your vehicle
- High-pitched squeal or squeak upon applying the brakes
- The need to apply more pressure to stop at a particular point than it previously required
While you should consider having your brakes checked by a professional technician at least once each year, you may want to have brake service performed more often if you live in a hilly or mountainous area, or in a busy urban area where you brake frequently.
Brake pad replacement
Having your brake pads replaced when they have worn down is essential to your car's ability to stop and your safety. Most motorists have brake pad replacement performed a handful of times over the years, but this depends on factors including how much you drive and the conditions you drive in (high-traffic areas, lots of hills and curves, etc.).
While they may sound like a minor component of your vehicle, the brake pads are responsible for your car having the ability to come to a stop. When you apply the brakes, the pads slow or stop your vehicle because they apply friction against a metal drum or disc (rotors). You can understand how they would wear down with frequent or hard braking over time. It's so important to have things checked out if you have squeaky brakes or any other issues related to braking - otherwise, you could find yourself in a situation where you cannot stop!
