A common brake line repair or replacement problem after a harsh winter like this recent one is the rust and corrosion present from the road salt and other chemicals used to melt the ice and snow that covered local roads, highways, and even parking lots in Herndon, VA.

To counter this threat to your SUV, car, or truck, Wiygul Automotive technicians carefully examine every customer’s brake lines with a free inspection that also includes a check of the brake pads and brake fluid level. After several winters, a small amount of surface discoloration is normal, but if they find it along the entire brake line, complete replacement is needed to ensure the safety of the driver and her passengers.

Our specialists carefully disassemble the brake line connectors and remove the damaged lines to preserve the connection points and the brackets which secure them. Then, they drain the brake system of fluid and clean the connectors before measuring new lines for installation.

Technicians do this with new brake line material drawn from our on-hand inventory. They match and cut them to the length of the old lines before disposing of the damaged ones according to state and EPA regulations. Then, technicians insert one end and secure it in place with a cleaned connector before carefully bending the new one into place and attach the other end. Finally, they replace the brackets to keep the new lines properly positioned.

To ensure everything is cut, bent, and attached correctly, two technicians perform a brake check. One of them fills the master cylinder reservoir with new brake fluid and then loosens the bleeder valve. Another technician begins tapping the brakes to bleed air from each new brake line. The two of them continue until the one under the vehicle sees only new fluid exiting the line with nothing to indicate there is any remaining air.

Once that happens, they close the bleeder valve. If replacing all four lines is needed, technicians start with the passenger and driver rear brake lines, then finish with the front passenger and driver lines.

This completes the service operation, and the vehicle is ready for safe operation again on highways and area roads. In addition to brake line repair and replacement, our Herndon, VA clinic provides the following services with the same level of expertise:

  • ABS Brake Repair
  • Brake Hose Repair
  • ABS Pump and Actuator Service
  • New Brake Pad Installation
  • Brake Caliper Replacement
  • Resurfacing or Replacement of Brake Rotors

Although we began automotive service over 40 years ago, Wiygul still strives to be the best, full-service automotive operation in Virginia, Maryland, and the Beltway.
