Why Hansma Automotive Is The Best Brake Service Provider In Kitchener

Hansma Automotive is the best brake service provider in Kitchener because of their high quality work, excellent customer service, and experienced professional staff.

High Quality Work: What Our Brake Service Includes

At Hansma Automotive we can do repairs to your existing brake system without having to replace all of the parts. We will fix only what needs fixing or replacing. You can trust us to never do extra, unnecessary work.


1. Brake Safety Check

We will perform a brake safety check and let you know which if any components need to be fixed or replaced. Our brake safety check includes the following:

  • Brake Pads and Shoes - to check for wear
  • Drums and Rotors - to check for wear
  • Wheel Cylinders and Calipers - to check for leaks
  • Hydraulic Lines and Hoses - to check for leaks, kinks, and blockages
  • Fluid in the Master Cylinder - to check the level and the condition of the fluid

2. Brake Repairs

If your brake pads are worn, we will replace them. It's a good idea to have your brakes checked once a year or every 50,000 km. to catch worn pads before they become a bigger issue. Replacing worn pads before they damage the disks or drums is very inexpensive compared to the much higher expense of fixing or replacing damaged disks or drums.

3. Rotors Turned or Replaced

If your brake pads have worn down completely they may have damaged your rotors. If your rotors are damaged they will need to be turned or replaced. Read more here.

4. Caliper Replacement

Most newer vehicles use a disc brake system. Your calipers are vital to this type of system. According to HowStuffWorks.com, the caliper fits over the rotor like a clamp and its job is to squeeze the brake pads against the surface of the brake rotor to slow or stop the vehicle. Healthy brake calipers are essential for safe vehicle operation. If your calipers are damaged they will need to be replaced.

5. Wheel Cylinder Rebuilding or Replacing

In a drum brake system, wheel calipersexert force onto the shoes to bring them in contact with the drum. Wheel cylinders have two pistons, each with a rubber seal and shaft that connects it with the brake shoe. When you apply the brakes, the pistons are pushed outwards, connecting to the drum and thus slow your vehicle by friction. If your wheel cylinders show signs of leaking, they must be rebuilt or replaced. This is a relatively inexpensive job.

We want you to feel that you are in control, so we will give you a choice of parts, letting you know the advantages and disadvantages of each choice.
