Brake services involves much more than just changing your brake pads. The braking system has parts that wear over time. They can also get rocks or other debris caught in them, breaking fluid can leak out, or they become loose. Because your brakes are such an important part of your safety and that of other drivers on the road around you, getting regular brake service is an imperative. Federal Way Automotive & Radiator offers brake service Federal Way has come to know and trust for quality and reliability.
Having a healthy brake system is so important that we offer a free inspection as part of all our services. Letting your brakes go too long without changing at least the brake pads can result in much more expensive repairs. The metal parts begin to grind on one another and your rotors get warped. It is not only a more expensive repair, it is also dangerous to drive that way.
When you come to us for regular maintenance and/or brake services in Federal Way we inspect the following:
- Brake rotors
- Master Cylinders
- Hydraulic Hoses
- Wheel Cylinders
- And More
