BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Munson Auto Service, we want our Riviera Beach customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 561-845-6565, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Munson Auto Service offers.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Munson Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Munson Auto Service as soon as possible.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Munson Auto Service about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Munson Auto Service where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

I was referred here by Pat tires. They told me the repair was going to be $300 I was like okay let's get this done. Come to find out it was $257. This guy is also so good that a lot of other local mechanics bring work to him. He's my mechanic and tell either I move or he retires


-Maxx S.

Took my car in for service (badly needed) to Munsons and was extremely happy with the service and care I received. They are very honest and did a great job. My car has never run better! I had a timing belt changed and new radiator installed and various other things they found wrong. My boyfriend is very knowledgeable with various mechanical issues and agreed with everything they found. He had also taken his car in for repairs previously and recommended them to me. This is one mechanic shop you can trust!!!


-Angela H.

Great service and price. Chris at the counter and Mike the owner are great guys. I've brought my truck to them several times for a variety of services and they always have me quick service at a great price.


-Joel A.

I just had the most incredibly wonderful experience with this company. I was looking for a mechanic for my Saab to have the air conditioning fixed and googled companies that worked on these cars and this company was referred by someone else it was too busy to take me and all I can say is I must've been divinely guided to this company. They fit me in, they were incredibly kind, polite, in their integrity and addressed the problem that I had with the air conditioning and did a few other things in less than an hour and didn't charge me a penny. I know where I'm taking my car for service from now on. Thank you so much for starting this holiday weekend me in such a wonderful way!
