After a harsh winter like this one, a common brake line problem needing repair or replacement is the rust and corrosion from the water, salt, and other particles used to melt ice and snow on roads and highways around Alexandria, VA.

To combat this threat to your car, SUV, or truck, our trained specialists start with a thorough inspection of the brake lines. After several winters and years of driving, we expect to find a small amount of surface discoloration, but if they find it runs along an entire line, replacement is needed to ensure both proper operation and safety of everyone in the vehicle.

Wiygul automotive specialists carefully disassemble the connectors and remove the old lines to avoid damaging the connection points and the brackets which hold the lines in place. They drain the old lines of fluid and dispose of them according to state and EPA regulations and then clean the connectors and everything else before measuring and installing the new lines.

Specialists take new brake lines from inventory and compare the new material to the length of the old lines before disposal. Then, they custom-cut each one to match each vehicle. They insert one end and tighten it in place before carefully bending the new line into position and then attach the other end. Finally, they replace the brackets to keep the new lines in place.

They make certain everything is connected by performing a new brake check. Specialists start the process by filling the master cylinder reservoir with new brake fluid. Next, they bleed air from each replaced line by loosening the bleeder valve and carefully tap the brakes until they see only new fluid exiting the line. If we have to replace all four lines, our teams start with the passenger and driver rear brake lines. Specialists then complete work on the front passenger and driver lines.

With these actions completed, your vehicle is ready for safe brake operation once more on area roads and highways. In addition to brake line repair, our Alexandria, VA clinic also offers a free, visual brake check that includes measurement of both the brake fluid level and brake pad thickness. All Wiygul Clinics also provide the following services with the same level of expertise:

  • ABS Brake Repair
  • Brake Hose Repair

  • New Brake Pad Installation
  • Brake Caliper Replacement
  • Resurfacing or Replacement of Brake Rotors
