BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Barkley's Auto Service, we want our Greenbrier 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 501-679-6770, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Barkley's Auto Service offers.

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.

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. Barkley's Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

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 Barkley's Auto Service as soon as possible.

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 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 Barkley's Auto Service about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 Barkley's Auto Service where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

What People Say About Us

    Best place in Greenbrier to have work done. Took my truck in and asked them to do a bumper to bumper inspection and tell me what it needed. They gave me a list of things that needed to be done immediately and another of things that could be done at a later time. They were flexible with my time and got the work done on schedule. Their prices were fantastic and their entire crew was extremely professional.

    I am from Evansville, Indiana. I had just bought my car there. I drove to Greenbrier, AR not knowing my brakes were very bad when I started. The seller told me he had just put brakes on it. I called Barkley's, which was highly recommended. They got me in right away. Replaced all of the brakes, rotors and something else that fell apart while removing the rotors. They were EXTREMELY professional, and the bill was VERY cheap. I HIGHLY recommend these guys! If I ever need any kind of repairs again while visiting here, these guys will ALWAYS get my business!
