The sense of control you have over your Nissan vehicle near Garden Grove comes in no small part because of the braking system. If you own a modern vehicle, it's likely you have disc brakes. These brakes have something called calipers that work in conjunction with the brake pads to make contact with your rotors and stop your vehicle. You can see some of these components just by looking through your wheels. Almost everyone is familiar with a set of brake pads that wear down, but there's even more to Nissan brake repair than pads. When you schedule at Nissan of San Juan Capistrano, we'll fully inspect your brakes and let you know what their health is.
Assessing Brake Problems
Almost all problems begin with a single sign. Something is amiss in your braking system that isn't usually there. The most common "squeal" for brake repair will come from worn down brake pads. As you drive your vehicle and brake, the pads come into contact with rotors and begin to wear away. When they're almost completely worn out, you may begin to hear the sound of metal on metal when you brake. Nissan brake repair is never wanted, but it's a lot easier if it's a simple brake pad change. We can have you back out there with a fresh set of brake pads and enjoying life again in no time.
Other more serious problems might warrant Nissan brake repair near Garden Grove. If you notice extremely loud noises coming from your brake system, then the rotors might be bad. Noise alone isn't enough to diagnose the need for rotor repair. Most commonly, it's a "vibrating brake pedal" that will tip you off to a rotor problem. Of course, none of our customers have to handle Nissan brake repair themselves. Our team near Garden Grove is perfectly happy to give you professional-grade brake repair that saves you time and worry. Other components of your braking system can go bad as well, such as a master cylinder or your brake system's calipers. Sometimes a caliper becomes "frozen" and must either be repaired or replaced. Whether or not you choose to do this is always up to you! Oftentimes with older vehicles, people choose to forego major, expensive repairs and get another vehicle. However, if there's any way to keep your older model vehicle braking like new again, we'll do it.
