Anti-Lock Brake System
Why maintaining your Anti-Brake System is important:
The components of the anti-lock brake system work together to rapidly pulse the brakes and prevent them from locking up the wheels when a driver slams on the brake pedal. This keeps more of the surface of the tire in contact with the road and allows the vehicle to be steered while it is stopping. If your ABS light comes on, come see us at Seymour's Garage.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Why maintaining your brake fluid is important:
A brake fluid flush refers to the process of replacing all of your old brake fluid with fresh, clean brake fluid. Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid.

Why maintaining your brake hoses is important:
A brake hose is a tube that carries pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pads are a component of disc brakes used in automotive and other applications. Brake pads are composed of steel backing plates with friction material bound to the surface that faces the disc brake rotor. Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always your auto repair professional at Seymour's Garage immediately if you have brake problems.
The brake caliper is a clamp mechanism that applies friction to the rotors to slow down or stop the wheels from turning when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, even making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Seymour's as soon as possible to make sure you are safe.
