BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, Master Mechanics can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 337-364-6977 or visit us in New Iberia and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!

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. Master Mechanics 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 Master Mechanics 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 Master Mechanics 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 Master Mechanics where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

    -Helen-Tommy D.

  • My husband's truck been idling bad and killing at red lights and stops signs. He brought it in a few months ago to another shop. Well needless to say they didn't do the job correct. He drives to Broussard to work everyday and this isn't the kind of vehicle you want to drive like this. I told him about Master Mechanics. I got in touch with Emmett. We brought it in Tuesday afternoon before they closed. We already knew what was wrong and how much it would cost. Part was ordered and truck was ready today. It's working like a champ. I highly recommend Master Mechanics for all your car and truck needs. Staff was very nice and caring. There were a few other questions I asked about changing and Emmett said that was not needed. The price to fix the truck was decent and he saved us lots of money by being honest about other things I wanted to change. We will sure be using Master Mechanics again. Thank you all.
    -Monica H.

    -Misty W.

  • I've been taking my vehicles to Emmett for a while now. They have done everything from general maintenance to replacing broken motor mounts on my wife's car. I have never dealt with people who are as professional as the guys at Master Mechanics. It's a good feeling to know that when I'm not around, due to work, and there's a problem with the car, I can send my wife there and know they won't rob her. These guys are honest, fair and professional. They take great care of their customers. If you're looking for a great mechanic that you can trust, look no further.
    -Jim L.

  • I went there with my car in bad shape. They fixed my car. They were very courteous. Mr. Emmet gave me a great price for all they had to do. I will continue to take my car there in the future.
    -Deborah M.

  • We brought our vehicle to Master Mechanics to repair the air condition evaporator coil. The service was great! The job was done in one day, this is a big job of pulling out the whole dash board. They were also $300.00 cheaper than the other shop we were considering bringing it to. They are definitely in business to take care of their customers. I would recommend this shop any day.
    -Aaron L.

  • Emmet is great to work with. Tells you exactly what needs to be done. Offers suggestions on how to make things better. He doesn't push you to buy things you can't afford. Honest. Fair. Quick!
