At Laham's Auto Service, we want our Brockton 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 508-580-1151, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Laham's Auto Service 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 Laham's Auto Service 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 Laham's Auto Service about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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.
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 Laham's Auto Service as soon as possible.
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. Laham's Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

I've been going to Fred for service for many years. Many of his customers are repeat and have been going there for years as well. Fred is a great mechanic and great at diagnosing hard to find problems. The prices are fair and he doesn't try to charge me for unnecessary service I don't need.
Honest, professional. I had to replace my radiator fan. VW JETTA. Dealership quoted $900 and told me I needed new battery for another $300 ($1,200 total). Laham's had the radiator replaced for $350 (used part) and told me that my battery still had plenty of life left. I asked for plenty of quotes. Some mechanics don't even want to listen to you and your troubles. Again, Laham's was very honest and professional. 5 stars I will be returning for any of my repairs.
