Brake Service

Sometimes a loud noise or high pitch squeal occurs when the brakes are applied. Most brake squeal is produced by vibration (resonance instability) of the brake components, especially the pads and discs (known as force-coupled excitation). This type of squeal should not negatively affect brake stopping performance. When you notice squealing noises or vibrations that occur when you press the brake pedal, your car’s brakes have worn down. The basic components of your braking system that develops wear over time are the brake pads/shoes, brake rotors/drums, and brake fluid. At European Auto Plus we will inspect the condition of these essential parts and replace them as necessary to keep you safe on the road.

A flush of your brake fluid is recommended every 2-3 years by most car manufactures as preventative maintenance.

At European Auto Plus we use a Brake Flush System that effectively flushes out all oxidized and corrosive fluid from the entire braking system. The old fluid is replaced by premium grade brake fluid that provides excellent rust and corrosion protection throughout the braking system.
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) found in most European cars allows you to brake faster and more effectively. When the ABS light appears on your dashboard, a fault has occurred in the system. At European Auto Plus we have the most up-to-date technology integrated tools to diagnose any ABS fault (using BAUM, Snap-on and Autoland Diagnostic Equipment) )and make the appropriate repairs.
Remember, regular brake inspections should be part of your vehicle's ongoing maintenance, helping to ensure its safety and reliability. In fact, we recommend that you have them inspected at least once a year or if you experience any of the following:

  • Low or spongy brake pedal
  • Hard brake pedal
  • Brake warning light that stays on
  • Continuously squealing or grinding brakes
    Any time you notice these symptoms (or any others), it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked
