Brake Repair & Pad Replacement Scottsdale

Our latest brake repair review on Google:

First class service! As always my recent experience at Bridwell was great. My 2012 Land Rover needed complete rear brakes, brake flush, and all new air filters. Bridwell had my LR 4,  in and out in one day, called me to confirm the recommended service,  gave me an estimate, and completed all work same day, and the total fee was exactly as the estimate. Bridwell has serviced my Land Rover  and other vehicles over the last several years, and their customer service, quality of work, expertise, and most importantly, their  honesty and integrity are what has kept me coming back to Bridwell. I would highly recommend Bridwell for all of your auto repair and service needs.” Vehicle: 2012, Land Rover LR4, HSE/LUX.  Service Date: 05/30/2017 – David Eyester & Dr. Reem Kidess, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253

Brake Repair & Brake Pad Replacement
In Scottsdale

We provide quality brake repair and brake pad replacement in Scottsdale, servicing nearly any make or model of car or truck. Don’t be fooled by so-called “Brake Specialists” that offer extremely low prices to replace your brakes. First, you get what you pay for.  Second you will almost never get just your brake pads and or rotors turned or replaced. There will almost always be more work to do that will drive the cost of your brake repair up higher than promised.

Brakes making a high pitch squealing noise? That high pitched sound could be due to the rod that is inserted into your brakes pads.  That indicates that the brake pads are wearing down. If you continue to ingore these warning sign your brakes will eventually wear out and start grinding metal on metal. You could end up damaging your rotors and having to get them spun or replaced (very expensive), which can be very costly.

European cars (Mercedes & BMW) are a little bit different. They often require that the brake pads, rotors or discs be replaced each time a brake service is performed. We also can preform brake repair for any other vehicle, both foreign imports and domestic cars, trucks and SUVs.

Take our challenge and call a dealership and another independent brake repair shop for estimates. They will both tell you the same thing. Brake specialist type shops hope that once your car is at their shop you will not pull your car out because it “requires” more work than their initial ‘low ball’ price allows.

Bridwell Automotive will never sell you anything that your brake system doesn’t absolutely need because we are priced fairly from the beginning.  We make every effort to make sure each customer is satisfied every time, the first time.

Rotor Repair & Replacement
Services Available

If your vehicle’s brakes are in bad condition or you kept driving after your brakes started squealing, there is a great chance that your rotors were damaged due to the metal on metal scraping. If your rotors still have life left there is a chance you can get them spun to remove the scrapes. However, if your rotors are bad you will need rotor replacement. Some brake repair shops won’t even replace your brakes without replacing your rotors because bad rotors will wear your brakes out twice as fast. If a brake shop tells you they can replace your brakes without spinning or replacing your rotors, run fast!

Brake Fluids / Brake System Flush

The biggest enemy of brake fluid is moisture, and moisture can rust the internal parts of the brake system where the brake fluid flows. This was not as much of a problem 20 years ago, but with the advent of the ABS brake systems of today, rust and other debris that accumulates in the fluid can a lot of internal damage, and can be very costly. Additionally brake fluid also breaks down over time from the heat that is created from your brake system. We recommend flushing the brake fluid system about every 30,000 miles, or every two years.

How Do Brakes Work?

When you press on your brake pedal, hydraulic fluid moves through the brake lines to create pressure against the calipers. The calipers press again your rotors on both sides to create friction and slow down your vehicle.

What is a brake pad?

Your brake pads are a part in-between your calipers and your rotors. The brake pads are made out of ceramic or metallic material that wears out over time. The ceramic or metallic pad is actually what creates the friction against your rotors. It is very natural for your brake pads to wear out overtime. However, just because there is friction in place doesn’t mean you should hear any squealing or squeaking noise. If you are hearing high pitched noises coming from your brake pads, that’s a sign your brake pads need to be replaced.

What are rotors?

Brake rotors are the circular piece of steel that the calipers and brake pads press against once you apply force to the brake pedal. Rotors should be smooth, without any scratches, dings or dents to prevent your brake pads from wearing out faster. This is why most brake replacement shops require replacement of the rotors along with your brakes, to ensure the most life and dependability of your brake pads.

What is a brake flush?

A brake flush is used to clear out old hydraulic fluid and debris from the hydraulic system. The system is then refilled with new hydraulic fluid to ensure the best performance and lifespan of your braking system.

How many miles should brakes last?

Typically brakes should last about 50,000 miles, however, depending on the way you drive, brakes could last as little as 25,000 miles or as long as 70,000 miles.

When to replace brake pads mm?

Experts recommend changing your brakes pads once your pads reach 3mm (3 millimeters) or less.

My brakes have no pressure, is that a problem?

If your pedal goes all the way to the floor when you press on the brakes, you either have low brake pads, low brake fluid, a problem with your master cylinder, or a problem in your brakes lines or hydraulic system. You should have your brakes inspected right away.
