How a Brake System Inspection Works

So, how does the inspection process work? Lafontaine Hyundai performs a comprehensive visual inspection of your vehicle's entire brake system-measuring its brake pads, brake pedal, brake lines, and cylinders. It's important to know that your vehicle has one of two types of brake systems: disc brakes or drum brakes.

Disc Brake Systems

Disc brake systems are incredibly common. They're also a little easier to inspect. A disc brake system consists of a caliper, a pad, a disc and potentially a rotor. When its brake pedal is pressed, hydraulic fluid passes through the system's lines-forcing the caliper to press against the disc. This creates friction, slowing the vehicle.

Drum Brake Systems

A drum brake system consists of brake shoes and a brake drum. When you press the brake pedal, its cylinder presses the brake shoes, which have brake linings, against the brake drum's inner surface. This creates friction, slowing the vehicle. During an inspection service, Lafontaine Hyundai technicians perform a comprehensive visual inspection of your vehicle's brake system. During this inspection, we'll measure the efficiency of your brake pads-providing a written evaluation of recommended services. Your brake pedals are also examined: Technicians measure its free play and reserve distance. If there are any discrepancies between the recordings and your manufacturer's recommendations-we'll suggest maintenance. Not all brake system maintenance procedures are the same, however, existing on a case-to-case basis.
