Theodore has completed 2 jobs for me over the past year and was courteous, knowledgeable and diligent is performing the work. I appreciated the job he performed for me last night in the rain.
Theo was on time & performed the service well. He tried to sell another service, but overall good.

Appointment and service went well. David checked in to see if it would be all right to arrive half an hour early, which worked out fine. He started work right away and when finished went over what he did, as well as went over a check list of the car's condition. The work was completed in the time estimated. The payment was what was quoted. Very convenient. I liked being able to see who my mechanic would be, as well as his background and being able to track his arrival. Very convenient. Good work.

This was my first time using "Your Mechanic". I found the website when shopping for new brake pads. My dealership wanted hundreds more. Local mechanics wanted me to waste a half day or better just to get a price quote. On a leap of faith I gave this seemingly to-good-to-be-true company a shot. I booked an appointment, surrendered my credit card info and hoped for the best. Immediately, my appointment was confirmed with time, date, original quote, Andy's information and everything else I needed. The next day, Andy called ahead on his way. When he arrived, he located my car in the lot, explained the process and answered all my questions. I handed over my key and walked back to my office fully expecting a call in a couple hours to tell me home much more work needed to be done and that my estimated cost would be twice as high. What happened was: Andy finished early, called me down, walked me through everything he had done. Only after I was fully informed and satisfied did he ask me to review the invoice and sign - for LESS than the original quote. Now, only by a few dollars, but still less! In addition to LOWERING the cost and finishing early, I was emailed a link to a VISUAL and VERBAL inspection report, a written quote I had asked for regarding another area on my car and his advice regarding that work. Now relieved and beginning to believe this service was legit I began to praise Andy and his company. I shared how many people were looking down from our offices wondering what was going on with my car. I explained I would be sharing this experience with all of them and writing his review online and sharing all over social media. Andy is polite, patient and professional. He put me at ease right away. His empathy and knowledge made me feel I had made the right decision from the very beginning. Your Mechanic is my first call going forward. Check out their services and reviews. This is the future of vehicle maintenance and repairs. Thank you, Andy - job exceptionally well done! Chuck from Kansas City, MO

Larry is hands down one of the best mechanics I've personally crossed paths with in the last 35 years. It was very apparent that he loves what he does, and he has a passion for getting the job done. I can't say enough about how impressed I am with both YourMechanic and Larry personally. I'm kind of old school and often reflect back to the days when it wasn't so difficult to find a great neighborhood mechanic who was highly recommended because he was honest, straight forward, hardworking, and skilled at his craft. Larry is definitely that kind of a mechanic. He's a keeper, lol. Awesome job Larry. We appreciate your work ethic and getting the job done. We will definitely request you in the future. Thank you!

Brake Pad Replacement Service

What are brake pads and how do they work?

Brake pads consist of friction material that is bonded to a sturdy steel backing plate. When you push on the brake pedal, the friction material on the brake pads is forced against the inner and outer surfaces of the steel brake rotor under tremendous pressure. The resulting friction causes the wheels on your car to slow rapidly allowing for a quick, safe and controlled stop. After thousands of miles, this friction material eventually wears away, and the brake rotor wears away as well, requiring replacement.

Brakes-Service

When to replace brake pads?

Here are several indications that you need new brake pads:

  • Wear indicator on vehicle dashboard. When the friction material on the brake pads is worn to within 2 mm of the pad backing plate, replacement of the pads is necessary. Most newer cars today have electronics built into the brake pad. When the pad is at a point that it needs to be replaced, a symbol will appear on your vehicle dashboard’s instrument cluster. Consult your owner’s manual to learn what the symbol looks like.
  • High pitched squeal when braking. When the friction material on the pads is worn close to the backing plate, you may hear a squealing or squeaking noise as you drive regardless of whether you are applying the brakes or not. That squealing or squeaking noise is designed to make you aware that the brake pads are getting low and need to be inspected. If all of the friction material on the brake pad has been worn away, you will hear grinding and scraping noises when you apply the brakes. Pad replacement is mandatory at this point and the vehicle is unsafe to drive until corrected.
  • Brake pedal pulsation or vehicle vibration. Over time, brake rotors may develop excessive thickness variation (>.001 inches), excessive runout on the wheel hub (> .002 inches), or the brake rotor may warp due to high operating temperatures. If these defects exist, you may notice pulsation in the brake pedal or steering wheel during braking. New pads and rotor resurfacing or replacement will be required if the rotor has any of the above-mentioned deficiencies.
  • Vehicle pulling or wandering on braking. If your car pulls to the right or left during braking, that could be a sign of a sticking brake caliper, misalignment of the suspension, and sometimes tire defects or uneven tire inflation from side-to-side. The mechanic who inspects your vehicle will determine if new brake pads alone will resolve the issue or if other repairs are needed.
  • High mileage on existing pads. Regardless of whether any of the above brake system symptoms occur, every 10,000 miles a mechanic should measure the thickness of the remaining friction material on the brake pads and perform a thorough visual inspection of the braking system.
  • Brake system warning lights and/or maintenance reminder messages. Should your brake system warning light ever illuminates, or a brake system related maintenance reminder message appears in the driver information display, have your vehicle inspected and repaired as soon as possible.

How do mechanics replace brake pads?

Normally, pad replacement requires these steps:

  • Confirm the thickness of the remaining friction material on the brake pads. If the remaining friction material is less than 2 mm in thickness, pad replacement is warranted.
  • Visually inspect the brake rotor surface that contacts the pad (for scoring, pitting, grooves, rust) and measure the brake rotor with precision tools for thickness variation, run-out and warpage.
  • Inspect the caliper, torque plate, pads, and rotors to determine if the caliper is operating freely (i.e., inspect for stuck calipers).
  • Install new pads and any additional recommended components (e.g., rotors, if rotors depart from OEM specifications) only with customer approval of course.
  • Lubricate brake system components, such as caliper sliding pins, and inspect the condition of the brake fluid. Top off brake fluid as required.
  • Perform a basic 50 point safety inspection of your vehicle.
  • Finally, the mechanic will test drive your vehicle to confirm normal operation of the brake system.

Is it safe to drive with a brake pad problem?

Driving a vehicle with a known deficiency in the braking system is unsafe and consequently is not recommended. Worn out brake pads can increase stopping distances and so for your safety, it is always advised that worn out brake pads be replaced promptly. Further driving is not recommended and you should request service at your earliest convenience if any of the following circumstances exist: stopping distances are much greater than what you are accustomed to; the brake pedal is not firm or is low; there is loss of braking power assist; the vehicle pulls severely to one side on braking; or the brake system warning light is on.

If you detect unusual noises, such as squealing or grinding, but stopping distances are close to what you are used to, and the brake pedal is firm, and there are no warning lights, it may be safe to proceed to your destination but schedule service at your earliest convenience. When it comes to the brakes on your vehicle, always err on the side of caution and have a mechanic check your brake pads and braking system at the first indication of a problem.

When replacing brake pads keep in mind:

Brake pads must always be replaced as a set, that is both wheels (driver and passenger side) on an axle, front or rear, must be serviced. If brake pads on only one side of the car were replaced, your car might pull to one side when you apply the brakes. Often, resurfacing or replacement of the brake rotors is necessary and a competent mechanic will always measure for wear and damage to the brake rotors and advise you as to whether rotor replacement or re-surfacing is needed.
