Brakes are often taken for granted. We press our brake pedal so often without fail that we never expect a problem to occur. Here at Master Auto Repair of Webster Grove, we want to make sure your brakes stay dependable.
Your vehicle’s brakes are like the hand brakes on a bicycle. The wheels are bolted to smooth steel rotors, called discs, and a heavy caliper encloses part of the rotor like a clamp. The caliper holds the brake pads, and when you step on the brake pedal hydraulic pressure forces the pads against the rotor, dragging the vehicle to a halt.
