What do you inspect when you do a brake service check on a vehicle?

When we perform a brake checkup at Texas Elite Auto & Diesel, we do so in a comprehensive and professional manner. We do this every single time, with no exceptions!

Our brake service checks include the following:


Test Drive

We begin by taking your car for a short drive, so we can ascertain what, if any, problems you may be having with your brakes. We’re on the lookout for any sounds or smells that seem unusual in any way, which gives us a better idea of what to look for when we return to our San Antonio, TX repair shop.


On-Site Inspection

After we return from the test drive, we’ll pop open the hood and take a look at your brakes, specifically components like the master cylinder and the brake lines, and inspect the area for any sign of damage or fluid leaks.


Check The Brake Fluids

Our technicians will next perform a brake fluid test on your car to determine what kind of shape the fluids are in. We want to make sure the brake fluid isn’t contaminated by other substances and that the levels are remaining at adequate levels.


Continued Inspection

We’ll now put your car on a lift so we can examine your brakes from below. In this part of the process, we check for things like physical damage and leaks, while also inspecting the brake hoses, the wheel cylinders and the mounting brackets.


Wheel Components

We next remove the car’s wheels so we can inspect the hub and lug nut holes for any damage that many have occurred or is occurring. We’ll also check components of your brakes like the brake rotors, the caliper assemblies and more.


Component Assessment.

Lastly, our technicians will remove the rear brake drums and inspect them for things like cracks and hard spots.
