Routine maintenance can save you the stress of being buried under expensive replacement parts down the road when a small issue escalates into major damage.

We are committed to getting you back on the road in a safe vehicle, with brakes performing at optimal levels.

Common Brake Services for Your VW

Routine brake maintenance is the key to keeping your braking system functioning properly and safely. It can mean the difference between a quick inspection now or expensive repairs in the future because a minor issue was allowed to fester until it caused greater damage. Our certified technicians at West Houston Volkswagen will perform a detailed inspection of your brakes, noting any areas which could pose a concern. If an issue is identified, we can diagnose the root cause, and help rectify the problem with our full range of maintenance and repair services. These include the following:

  • Brake Inspection - When you’re concerned about your brakes’ performance or they are making abnormal sounds, bring your Volkswagen in for a brake inspection. We check the critical parts of your system to make sure they work as intended.
  • Brake Fluid Exchange - Your brake fluid can deteriorate over time, causing debris to build up within the reservoir. For optimal performance of your brakes, they need to move freely, which will require fresh brake fluid. We offer brake fluid exchange services for your convenience.
  • Brake Pad Replacement - With normal use, the friction needed to stop your VW will wear down your brake pads. When they get too thin, and their efficacy is compromised, we can replace them for you.
  • Rotor Resurfacing - The same friction that wears down your brake pads will also wear down the brake rotors. These metallic discs can be resurfaced if there is viable thickness remaining, which creates a smooth surface again on the metal’s surface. If the brake rotors are too thin, however, they’ll need to be replaced.
  • Caliper Service - The brake calipers squeeze together to push the brake pads against the brake rotors, and they will regularly need to be cleaned, lubricated, and inspected to ensure that they are providing the necessary precision.
