Deferring Your Regular Brake Service and Maintenance

Don’t Defer Your Brake Service and Maintenance

A customer of ours came in a few weeks ago for some service and maintenance and also complained of a brake noise. He had deferred his service and maintenance brake fluid flush several times over the years. These photos are the result of it. Since the system was not maintained, it rusted the brake caliper pistons & brake lines. Due to the rarity of the vehicle, our only option was to rebuild the brake calipers and perform a flush, multiple times, to get the corrosion out of the system.

At the same time, we also performed other deferred service and maintenance. Some items included an axle replacement, upper / lower ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings, rear transmission mount, the entire exhaust system, valve cover gasket and a four-wheel alignment.

We advocate on your behalf to perform your maintenance done when it’s due. By doing your service when it’s due, It will prevent further damage to other components. Furthermore, this will cost you much less in the long run. The safety systems in your vehicle are very important to service, which will also keep you safe and avoid any potential breakdowns.
