When it comes to automotive brake services in Jamaica, one of the biggest challenges people have is finding a professional automotive brake service provider in Jamaica that is efficient, reliable and affordable. The average consumer will usually go to the mechanic who will charge a fee to remove the brake rotors and then take it to the machine shop to have them skimmed….

More on this later.

One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that the shaking when braking will go away over time or thinking that they have to take the vehicle to a mechanic who will then remove the brake rotors (for a fee) and then take it to the machine shop and leave them there to have them resurfaced/skimmed. After about an hour or so depending on the amount of work the machine shop has, the mechanic collects the rotors (while paying the machine shop a fee for their labor ) and then he goes back to his garage and reinstall the brake rotors. All of this process takes about 2 to 3 hours depending on the vehicle type.

Here are some of the top Kingston brake services tips that will help you…

What causes steering wheel vibrations when braking?

Before you hit the road with your quivering car, be sure to ask a mechanic you trust to take a look at your rotors — a possible cause of a shaking steering wheel.

Have you ever been cruising down the road with your car running smoothly, only to find that your steering wheel suddenly starts trembling like a hairless dog on a cold day the moment you hit the brakes? Most of our clients usually discover this when driving down the hill on the highway 2000. Your immediate thought might be that you’ve driven onto a quake-prone fault line. That’s one possibility, but it’s more likely that there’s something wrong with your car. Now the question becomes, “What causes a steering wheel to shake when braking?” There are several possible answers — some more likely than others.

Vibrations in the steering column can happen for a number of reasons, such as a busted motor mount, bent rims, bad CV joints or loose lug nuts. But none of these automotive problems would cause a steering wheel to shake only when the brakes are applied. That’s almost always due to a problem with the rotors. 

What are brake rotors?


“What’s a rotor?” Good question. Rotors are discs that your brake pads clamp down on in order to stop your car. In other words, they’re pretty important. Why they may cause the steering wheel to shake when braking requires a quick review of how the brake rotors work.

Rotors are usually made of metal and function at a specific width, depending on the make and model of your vehicle. When you apply the brakes, the rotors are exposed to the intense heat that must be dissipated evenly across its surface for a smooth stop. However, rotors tend to wear down over time. As this happens, the metal may become thinned out or warped in certain spots. When the brake pads grip the rotor at high speeds, these imperfections cause a rumbling in the brake pedal that’s then transmitted to the steering wheel.

  • What is brake skimming?

    “All brake discs can be skimmed at least once. The only time your brake discs should be replaced is when they reach minimum thickness and our brake experts in Jamaica will tell you if there is enough material on your brake rotors, for it to be skimmed/resurfaced/machined. Brake disc skimming is a better option and a lower cost alternative to brake disc replacement.”

  • How do I know if my brake discs/rotors are worn?

    There are two ways to check for brake wear on disc brakes (disc rotors): by looking and by listening. First, check for wear by looking at your brake pads through the spaces between the wheel’s spokes. The outside pad will be pressed against a metal rotor. Generally, there should be at least 1/4 inch of pad on the brake pad.

  • What causes brake pads to wear quickly?

    Inner Pad Wear. The inboard brake shows more wear than the outboard pad. This happens when the caliper piston is not returning to the rest position due to a worn seal, damage, or corrosion. It can also be caused by a problem with the master cylinder. Low quality, cheap brake pads also wear much faster than premium quality brake pads.
