Brake Repairs

Brake Repairs in Miami, FL

Most drivers don’t put too much thought into something they step on daily to work. Still, your braking system is an essential component that sees a lot of shoe action but not a lot of thought until something, well, breaks.

At Perez Autoworks, we specialize in brake repairs and services. If your brakes are acting strange, squealing, or stopping you with apprehension instead of your car, contact our Miami team for repairs at your earliest convenience.

Everything You Didn’t Ask to Know About Brakes

We’re automotive repair experts with a penchant for putting a stop to faulty brakes. You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers. Even if you haven’t thought of the question yet, we’re here to give you the low-down on the ever important braking system in your vehicle.


What is in a brake system?


Glad you asked. Your braking system contains the following key components:

  • Brake Pedal: You step on this to begin the braking process.
  • Rotors: Also known as brake discs, your rotors stop your wheels when squeezed by your brake pads.
  • Brake Pads: These squeeze the rotors.
  • Brake Pistons: Rods that use hydraulic fluid to push the brake pads against the rotors.

There’s a lot more to your braking system, including brake cylinders, drums, shoes, and more. Every time you hit the brake pedal, you start a process that appears to offer results immediately. It's pretty cool when you think about it.


How do brakes work?


It seems easy:

  • You step on your brake pedal.
  • Your car stops.

In reality, it’s a lot more complex than that. When you step on your brake pedal, the brake fluid carries the force of your step to your brakes. You actually can’t create enough force by yourself to slow your tires. Instead, your vehicle helps you through science (by using leverage and manipulating hydraulic force). Your brakes then transmit the force to your tires using friction.


Why are my brakes squeaking?


Your metal rotors are vibrating. Common reasons include the weather (dust and humidity), type of material used in the brake pads (which squeeze the rotor), and age. It could also be a mouse with uncanny squeak timing. We can’t rule this out until you visit us.

Keep in mind squeaking is often due to something simple. Bring your vehicle over to our shop and our professionals will let you know so you can stop worrying. We can also make it so you stop hearing that squeak or chalkboard squeal each time you press the pedal.


What causes brakes to wear out quickly?


Premature brake wear is no joking matter and has multiple causes that often involve the rotors, including:

  • Cleanliness Level: Clean rotors and pads perform better and for longer than dirty ones. Even new rotors need to be cleaned first to remove any contaminates.
  • Proper Break-in: Rotors and pads need to be broken in properly for you to get the most out of them. This is especially important today, since more light weight materials are being used in the two parts.
  • Correct Thickness: Over time, rotors lose thickness. Driving with a skinny rotor can cause braking problems.

Fortunately, our team knows how to install brake components right and can easily pinpoint any of these problems if they are currently plaguing your vehicle. With proper installation of rotors, pads, calipers, and other parts, your brakes won’t wear quickly.
