BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR


A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Mickey's Car E.R. customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 443-652-3678 or visit us in Towson and Cockeysville and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.

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 Mickey's Car E.R. where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

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 Mickey's Car E.R. about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 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.

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 Mickey's Car E.R. as soon as possible.

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. Mickey's Car E.R. will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

What our clients are saying about us

We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!

What a great experience! Knowledgeable and professional! The turbo went up on my Acura RDX. The dealer pronounced my car DOA. They gave me an inflated estimate and insisted I was better off getting a new car. A close friend of mine recommended that I take my car to Mickey. I did just that and Mickey and his top notch team of Car Docs went to work on the patient. They were able to resuscitate her and save her life for a fraction of what the dealer wanted. Mickey kept me informed throughout the process. Even sending me video of the surgery! The turnaround was quick and I was back on the road in no time. Seriously, whether it's an oil change, or a major repair, Mickey and his team are equipped to do the job. You can expect an honest diagnosis, fair price, and outstanding workmanship. Mickey stands behind his work. I highly recommend Mickey's Car E.R. I was completely satisfied with my experience. quotes-image
