Every time you apply the brake pedal on your vehicle, the friction material of your braking system will incur a small amount of wear. For your brakes to function well, this system needs to be maintained and replaced when it is needed. Active Green + Ross can help repair or service your vehicle’s brakes at one of its complete tire and auto centres.


Why do i need this Service?

Brakes are a normal wear item for any car. Eventually, they’re going to need to be replaced for both performance and safety reasons.

Don’t let your brakes get to the “metal-to-metal� point, requiring more expensive rotor or drum replacement. Your owner’s manual might specify periodic flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system. Contaminated brake fluid can lead to corrosion and other problems in the hydraulic system, especially on cars with anti-lock brakes (ABS). Learn more about the Brake System

Typical Service

There are multiple elements involved in servicing your vehicle’s brakes.

  • Have your brake pads and shoes, drums and rotors, master cylinders, wheel cylinders, brake hoses, calipers, brake hardware and brake fluid inspected every year. This is also a good time to lubricate critical brake components.
  • Depending on the condition or thickness of the drums or rotors, resurfacing or replacement may be necessary.
  • The parking brake should also be checked for proper operation and adjustment. In some cases, the parking brake shoes/pads may need replacement.
