Winter has arrived, and Wiygul Automotive Clinics want to help you and your family stay safe on wet and icy roads. Regardless if you drive a car, SUV, or truck, each one needs additional distance to brake safely and with no loss of traction. A good set of tires is important, but to avoid sliding into other autos, curbs, rails, and anything else, you also need a good set of brake pads.

We begin each brake pad installation on a Fort Washington, MD vehicle with a complete inspection. Wiygul recommends an annual brake check, but if you have any concerns, an additional check is a good idea. Once our technicians take off the tires, they next remove and examine the brake rotors. Some minor wear is normal, even for new pads, but if the surfaces are very rough or have deep grooves, then our technicians recommend replacing them as well.

Now, our technicians remove the brake assembly of the calipers and pads for examination. Once a quick, visual check of the calipers ensures there is no physical damage, they use a metal brush to clean the area of the caliper that makes contact with the brake pads to ensure the surface is smooth and clean.

Next, Wiygul technicians measure the thickness of each brake pad to ensure they are still safe for your vehicle. If any of them are worn too thin, technicians remove and replace them with AC Delco, Advics, or another name brand, quality brake pads. For new pads, technicians apply an ‘anti-seize’ lubricant to both sides for better contact and prevent locking. They also apply a thin layer of an ‘anti-squeal’ paste that reduces the noise associated when braking with new pads. The paste also protects against the effects of road salt and water when it splashes onto the brake pads.

Technicians now insert the treated brake pads into the brake calipers. After making sure everything is in place, they reattach the brake assembly, replace the rotors, and then reinstall the tires to complete the brake pad installation for your Fort Washington, MD vehicle.

In addition to brake pad installation, Wiygul also offers these services for Fort Washington, MD autos:

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

Even if you just had a full brake inspection at a Wiygul Clinic, we encourage every driver to stay alert, especially when driving over or under bridges. These are usually the first places to freeze and the last ones to thaw. The roads under bridges remain icy longer since they are out of the sunlight. Call Wiygul Automotive at 866-702-8050 to schedule a brake pad installation or another service for your Fort Washington, MD auto to make certain your vehicle is ready to meet every requirement for winter driving.
