BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Randy's Auto Repair and Tire, we want our Clearwater customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 727-710-5408, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Randy's Auto Repair and Tire offers.

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 Randy's Auto Repair and Tire 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 Randy's Auto Repair and Tire 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 Randy's Auto Repair and Tire 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. Randy's Auto Repair and Tire will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

  • We were on vacation and my starter failed. Was faced with the daunting task of finding someone honest and reliable to fix it. Randy did just that and he charged a fair price! Would definitely recommend using him.

  • Well, I have to admit that all these small private operators are not sub-par mechanics. Randy, did front end struts, replacing both sides. Car was fixed promptly and done extremely good. My son wanted proof the work was done correctly, so off to Ford he goes, comes back and said the wheel alignment, was dead on the money. Since that time, Randy called me on 12/22/2020, to make sure all was still good. Bottom line, don't take your car anywhere else for repairs. Randy is HONEST, understanding, FAIR PRICED, and does what he says he will do. Thank you again for your great work.

    Car & Truck Care, near Clearwater, FL
    I broke down at a major intersection and remembered previously looking into this place and the great reviews. I called and he immediately rushed over to help me while I waited with the police. He saved me tow truck fees as well by not giving up until he found a way to get my car to the shop. Such a nice man and as a woman, I am forever grateful for the kind and honest work he does! One in a million mechanic, truly!

    I meant to review them when they replaced my brake pads and rotors. I had gone to CarMax to ask for them to do the same repair and they said it didn't need to be done. Randy was quite honest about it needing to be done soon. Got it done right then and haven't had any issues. Today, I got a flat tire (after having two replaced elsewhere). Immediately called and Randy told me I could bring it in. They patched up the tire and rotated them so the new tires would be in the front which should prevent this from happening in the future. Also, got an oil change as well. I highly recommend them to anyone in the Pinellas area. Moving forward, I'm going to remember to use their services for everything.

    I had a low tire light that wouldn't go out. Pulled in without an appointment. I was pulling out with aired up tires and no alert light in less than 15 minutes, with no charge. They were so nice and professional. I hope I don't have future car troubles but if i do I will go to Randy's.
