Winter has arrived, and Wiygul Automotive Clinics want to help keep you and your family safe in the snow and on icy roads. Regardless of which model you drive, your car or truck requires more distance for safe braking and to avoid sliding on slick streets. Tires are important, but to avoid spinning into other autos, curbs, rails, and trash cans, you must have a good set of brakes and brake pads.

Every professional brake pad installation for a Burke, VA vehicle begins with an inspection. Wiygul recommends an annual inspection, but an additional check as winter starts is good preventive maintenance. After technicians remove the tires from your car or truck, they examine the brake rotors. A little wear is normal unless they are brand new, but if our technicians find very rough surfaces or if they have deep grooves, then we recommend replacing them as well.

Now, our technicians remove and examine the brake calipers. For most brakes, they can remove the calipers and pads as one unit. If there is no physical damage, they use a metal brush to scrape and clean where the caliper touches the brake pads, for smooth and clean contact.

Next, technicians measure brake pad thickness to be certain it is still safe for your car or truck. If the pads are worn too thin, they remove and replace them with AC Delco, Akebono, or other quality, brand-name brake pads. Before replacing the new pads, technicians apply an ‘anti-seize’ lubricant to both sides of them to improve contact with the calipers and a thin layer of paste that reduces the noise you hear when braking. It is also resistant to the effects of road salt and water when they splash up onto the pads.

Technicians now take the new brake pads and insert them into the calipers. Once everything is in place, they reattach the assembly onto the wheels, reattach the rotors, and then reinstall the tires to complete your Burke, VA car or truck brake pad installation.

In addition to installations, Wiygul Automotive also offers these services for area cars and trucks:

  • ABS Actuator & Pump Service
  • Brake Line Replacement
  • ABS Brake Repair
  • Resurface or Replace Brake Rotors
  • Brake Caliper Replacement
  • Wheel Speed Sensor Repair
  • Brake Hose Replacement

Even after a new brake inspection at one of our Clinics, all area drivers need to be alert on ice and snow, especially when driving over bridges. They are often the first road surfaces to freeze and the last ones to thaw. Street surfaces under bridges usually stay icy longer because they are in shadow longer than exposed streets. Make certain your car or truck is ready to meet winter driving issues, and call Wiygul Automotive today at 866-702-8050 to schedule a brake pad installation or another service for your Burke, VA vehicle.
