BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR


A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 303-278-8766 or visit us in Golden and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.



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 Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD 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 Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD 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 Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD 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. Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

I got my X5 in early 2021 and started going to Andersen's for service soon after. Since my first visit, I've trusted my beamer with the service technicians and other staff at this shop. The services are affordable, the labor is consistently high quality, and you're usually in and out in a couple of hours. Unlike some recent dealership service center interactions, with Andersen's, I'm not worried about whether the work was done properly, as the performance of my vehicle afterward speaks for itself. Every time. Additionally, when my X5 needed some warranty work done, Kurt was immensely helpful in explaining the specific issue and what to say when I reached out to BMW North America and scheduled the warranty work at a dealership. I HIGHLY recommend Andersen's Foreign Car Service for maintenance of your beloved imports!

Fantastic! Repair completed BEFORE estimated time (2 weeks early!). Professional, reasonably priced and extremely well qualified. These guys found the problem with my Audi that 2 other shops gave up on! Will use again in a second!

Great work! Very professional. Came in for a trouble light and instead of dumping parts into the vehicle and charging us a lot of money, they cleared the code and said let's wait and see. Thank you very much!
