Putting The Brakes on Childhood Illness

Posted on September 15,17 by dearholtauto

Brakes - new brakes - brake pads - $9 to UNM Children's Hospital

Brakes are the most important Safety Equipment on your vehicle.

If your brakes are grinding or squeaking, have them checked by a professional mechanic.

For a limited time getting new brakes will help children who are facing life threatening illnesses. UNM Children’s Hospital is Albuquerque’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. The Children’s Miracle Network is a life line to local hospitals. UNMCH services the greater New Mexico region and provides life saving medical treatments to children who might not otherwise receive care. It is NAPA AutoCare Center’s pleasure to build awareness and raise money to help such a worthy organization. This donation is made possible by NAPA Parts, NAPA Brakes and Dearholt AutoCare.

Disc Brakes

Your brakes are extremely important as you drive around Albuquerque NM. Having good brakes just keeps you out of trouble. You’ll want to carefully maintain your brakes. With disc brakes, brake pads rub on a disc – or rotor – to slow the wheels.

The brake pads are attached to a caliper that squeezes the pads against the rotor. It’s kind of like how squeezing the handbrake on a bicycle pushes the brake pads against the wheel of the bike.

Now pads just wear away with use – kind of like a pencil eraser wears out. The good news is that replacing brake pads is a straight-forward repair.

Albuquerque NM Disc Brakes If you hear squealing or grinding when you use the brakes, have your Albuquerque NM service advisor check them out. He’ll have a technician perform a thorough brake inspection to see what needs to be done. He’ll check for signs of brake problems and go over other brake components to see that they’re working properly.

He can tell you if it’s time to replace the pads or if there are other issues with your brakes that should be addressed. Some people ignore the warning signs and keep driving long after the pads are completely worn out. When that happens, metal brake components will grind on the rotor, damaging it enough that it needs to be resurfaced or replaced.

Rotors can also warp or crack, in which case they’ll need to be replaced. Brake calipers also wear out over time. They can develop leaks or the caliper pistons can freeze open or closed – either way it’s not good. When this happens it’s time to replace the calipers. A thorough brake inspection will reveal worn bearings or seals as well.

The new brake pads we put on your vehicle will restore your brakes to manufacturers’ specifications. Or, we can install upgraded parts to increase your stopping power and reduce brake noise and brake dust. We have several options to meet your braking requirements and your budget.

Taking care of your brakes keeps them working safely – and you could prevent premature brake repairs down the road.
