We begin our brake repair services with a thorough inspection and diagnosis of your braking system. Our technicians will carefully examine all components, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, brake lines, and fluid levels, to identify any signs of wear, damage, or potential issues.

Whether it's worn brake pads, damaged rotors, or leaking brake lines, we have the expertise to handle various brake repairs efficiently and effectively.

Brake Pad Replacement

One of the most common brake issues is worn brake pads. Over time, brake pads wear down due to friction and need replacement to ensure proper braking. At Cranbrook Cars, we offer high-quality brake pads that meet or exceed manufacturer specifications. Our technicians will expertly replace your brake pads, ensuring a secure and reliable braking system.

Brake Rotor Resurfacing and Replacement

If your brake rotors show signs of damage, such as warping or uneven wear, resurfacing or replacement may be necessary. Our technicians are skilled in rotor resurfacing techniques, which can restore the smooth surface needed for optimal braking performance. In cases of severe damage or excessive wear, we may recommend rotor replacement for your safety and long-term reliability.
