Brake Repair Service in Hatboro PA at Lemek Automotive | Brake Replacement
Brakes are pretty much the most important safety device on your car. If you’ve ever partially lost your brakes in the past, you’ll agree that it’s not something you want to experience again. Inspecting your brakes twice a year for wear and damage can protect you and your passengers. Additionally, it will also help save you money by catching any damage before it becomes too costly.

Because the pads and shoes create friction to stop the car, they gradually wear down over time and may wear away completely, letting the metal of the calipers and cylinders they are attached to grind against the rotors and drums and damage them.
Some pads have a metal strip attached that sounds like a warning whistle when the pad becomes too worn, but this strip sounds only when the car is in motion and the brakes are not applied.
