BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 309-386-1999 or visit us in Bloomington and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!

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 Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair 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 Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair 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 Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair 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. Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

    I brought my truck into Zaabs and they were quick and helped me understand exactly what they were doing. I finally found a mechanic here who I can trust.

    After a different repair shop's service manager boldly lied to me about how an expensive repair was diagnosed, I took my car to Zaabs. The actual diagnosis and proper repair by Brian was 10% of the other shops alleged "repair". I fully recommend Zaabs.

    Called about getting the motor from my passenger window replaced. Brought it in the same day and the next day my window had been fixed and replaced. Quick and friendly service. Thanks!

    Very grateful to this business because he saved my car from a major car expense. My radiator was overheating due to my thermostat needing to be replaced due to a sensor issue. He was willing to fix it on a Sunday. Now my car is working wonderfully. Thank you Bryan!!!!!

    We were on our way back home from a vacation in Wisconsin, heading back to Key West, Florida. Our car started running hot, so we pulled in to three different auto shops. And the last one was the one that did the magic. Bryan Saner was very professional, clean and very friendly. I would highly recommend him and his shop. For a one man crew he was amazing. We are very satisfied.

    Excellent customer service and Brian was always nice and friendly. What I appreciate is the honesty I've experienced since taking my vehicles to Zabbs. And I normally don't take the time to write reviews but I felt it was necessary to give these guys their just do.
