WHAT IS BRAKE ADJUSTMENT?
A typical braking system uses disc brakes at the front of the car and drum brakes at the rear. The adjuster may also be a star wheel accessible through a hole in the backplate or the front of the brake drum. You may have to take the wheel off to reach it. The adjusters are exposed to weather and dirt, and are prone to seizure. Lubricate them with penetrating oil an hour or two before you start work, and again just before you turn them. With Wrench mobile service, you get the job done by an experienced mobile mechanic while you get on with your day.
HOW IS BRAKE ADJUSTMENT DONE?
It is recommended for you to check running clearance regularly, because as pads and discs wear, the clearance steadily increases. All air disc brakes are fitted with an automatic adjuster which self-adjusts during brake applications to accommodate for brake pad and disc wear.
SYMPTOMS THAT INDICATE YOU NEED A BRAKE ADJUSTMENT
- Grinding or growling
- Reduced responsiveness or fading
Poor quality braking is a risk no one should take. If there are problems with rotors, they should be replaced promptly. If there is significant damage, such as from worn-out pads making grooves in the rotors, they should be replaced immediately. Contact Wrench for a brake rotor replacement at your location, on your schedule. Smoother, safer braking will be your result!
