What’s Included in a Brake Diagnosis?

When you visit us for a brake diagnosis near Huntington Beach, your technician will inspect the entire brake system, including the brake pedal, brake fluid, brake lines and hoses, and disc brakes. It’s also smart to have the parking brake inspected, as it is often overlooked by vehicle owners. Depending on the results of your brake diagnosis, the recommended service(s) may vary, but here are just some of the brake services offered at Fletcher Jones Motorcars:

  • Brake bleeding
  • Brake line replacements
  • Brake pad replacements
  • Brake fluid checks
  • Disc brake replacements
  • And more!

How Often Do You Need a Brake Diagnosis?

For Mercedes-Benz vehicles, a brake component inspection is included as part of the Service A* and Service B* schedules. This means you’ll get a brake diagnosis approximately every one year or 10,000 miles in Laguna Beach.

Brake Noises Diagnosis

Hearing unusual noises when you apply the brakes in Orange County? From squealing to grinding, there are lots of noises your brakes can make that signal something is wrong. Take a look at this brake noises diagnosis checklist to understand what might be causing the sound you’re hearing, and don’t delay scheduling service with us in Newport Beach.

  • Squealing sounds – Typically, squealing brakes mean the brake pads need to be replaced.
  • Vibration sounds – If you hear or feel the brakes vibrating, you’re likely dealing with a worn-out or warped rotor.
  • Dusty squealing sounds – You might also hear a squealing sound if there is excessive brake dust; the difference is that this squealing is not accompanied by grinding or vibrations.
  • Brake fade and brake noise – If along with brake noises, you are experiencing inconsistent braking power, you might be dealing with brake fade. You’ll know it’s brake fade if the pedal feels soft or spongy when you press it.
  • Grinding brakes – Hearing a startling grinding sound when you brake? There may be a small pebble or other road debris caught in the system.
