BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Sheets Automotive, we want our High Point customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 336-434-1214, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Sheets Automotive offers.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Sheets Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliber problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Sheets Automotive as soon as possible.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Sheets Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Sheets Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

  • I have had Mr. Sheets work on my vehicles a few times. Recently I needed the timing belt replaced on my Honda. I also had a problem with my brakes that I just could not figure out, so I took it to Mr. Sheets. He solved the problem with the brakes, replaced the timing belt and associated parts all at a very reasonable fee. I am very happy with his work and honesty. I would not be afraid to deal with him for any vehicle need. Mr. Sheets gets an A++ from me.
