If your brakes squeal or grind, grab causing jerky stops or your warning light flashes it may be time for a free brake system inspection. Stop&Go offers brake service packages starting from 250 AED per front or rear brake service with (30000 Km or 3 years warranty) (1) pads or shoes.
Every Brake Service Includes:
- Quality Service TRW Brake
- Warranty 30000 Km or 3 years
- Resurfacing Serviced Drum or Rotor
Brake Service- Starting from 320 AED.
The Stop&Go Brake Service package includes a thorough brake system evaluation, brake pad or brake shoe replacement, and off-vehicle resurfacing of drums or rotors on the serviced axle(s) performed by our certified professional technicians.
- TRW Pads feature standard resistance formula and delivers dependable stopping power for safe braking.
- TRW branded shoes & pads are available in select locations.
- TRW Pads/Shoes meet OE (original equipment) requirements
- Well trained technicians performing the service
- All TRW products have ECE R90 approval
Additional Brake Services
We offer select additional brake services for an additional fee.
Brake Fluid Exchange- Starting from 160 AED with scheduled brake service
Brake fluid becomes contaminated and can shorten the life of your vehicle’s braking system components. The Stop&Go brake fluid exchange package helps maintain the integrity of your brake system components with the introduction of new, quality brake fluid.
- Quality service by a professional Stop&Go technician
- Extends life of brake system components including callipers, hoses and wheel cylinders
- Replacement of existing fluid with new, quality brake fluid specified for your vehicle
- Reduces risk of costly repairs down the road
Brake Skim Service
Stop&Go brake skimming service is designed to provide your vehicle with the best fit for your brakes. Our brake skimming service corrects thickness variations on the rotor and prolongs the life of your braking system.
Brake skim service includes:
- Provide a complimentary brake system inspection, including measuring the lateral runout and machine to limits of your rotors
- A Stop&Go certified technician will match your rotors to your vehicle using our state-of-the-art brake skimming, resulting in less braking vibration and noise
- Ensuring rotors are matched exactly to vehicle for smoother stopping
- Eliminating lateral runout that causes vibration and pedal pulsation (less than one thousandth of an inch)
BRAKE SYSTEM OVERVIEW
- Brake warning light comes on
- Your car pulls to one side when braking instead of stopping in a straight line
- Brake pedal is mushy or very hard to depress
- Brakes must be pumped to work properly
- Wheel(s) are excessively hot after short drives
- When applied, brakes grab causing jerky stops
- Brakes grind with continuous loud metallic noise when applied
Brake pads convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy by use of 'friction'. When a brake pad is heated up in contact with a rotor, it starts to transfer small amounts of friction material to the rotor. The brake rotor (both now with friction material on), will then 'stick' to each other to provide stopping power. The friction of the pad against the rotor is responsible for the majority of stopping power.
DISC BRAKE SYSTEM
The fluid from the master cylinder is forced into a calliper where it presses against a piston. The piston, in-turn, squeezes two brake pads against the disc (rotor), which is attached to the wheel, forcing it to slow down or stop.
BRAKE CALIPER ASSEMBLY
The brake calliper is the assembly which houses the brake pads and pistons. The pistons are usually made of aluminium, chrome plated steel, or from a composite material called phenolic. There are two types of calipers: floating or fixed.
THE WHEEL CYLINDER
The wheel cylinder consists of a cylinder that has two pistons, one on each side. On the interior of the piston is a rubber seal. The piston makes contact with the shoe directly or through a slotted pin. When hydraulic pressure is applied by the master cylinder, the cups and pistons are forced out, pushing the shoes into contact with the drum. When the brake pedal is released, return springs pull the shoes back away from the drums and push the wheel cylinder pistons back into their bores.
The master cylinder converts the mechanical force from the brake pedal into hydraulic pressure. When the brake pedal is depressed, the master cylinder piston moves forward and pushes the brake fluid ahead of it. Since the brake lines and wheel cylinders are filled with brake fluid, the piston acts on a solid column of fluid.
The brake booster is designed to create a greater braking force from minimum pedal effort, using a difference in atmospheric pressure and the engine's manifold vacuum. It increases the pedal force 2 to 4 times depending on the size of the diaphragm. The brake booster is located between the brake pedal and the master cylinder.
When pressure is applied to the brake pedal, pressure is exerted on the booster air valve. With pressure created by the booster the master cylinder is applied. Should the booster malfunction, the normal mechanical force of the master cylinder is maintained.
BRAKE HOSES & LINES
A multi-braided PVA hose reinforced to be compatible with most non-petroleum based brake fluids. A hydraulic brake hose carries fluid pressure from the Master Cylinder, through a steel line at the vehicle frame, to the brake calliper or wheel cylinder at the wheel. A brake hose must flex with wheel and suspension movement.
DO IT YOURSELF
Most new cars require brake service during the first 30,000 to 42,000 miles. It is also important to inspect them for wear before every winter and summer, because extreme temperatures may affect the brakes' effectiveness. Most basic brake repairs are relatively simple to do, as long as you work slowly and carefully follow the manufacturer's guidelines.
