Brake Parts

Brake Parts

Your braking system is a complex assembly of mechanical, electronic and hydraulic components which uses friction to slow and stop a moving vehicle. When the brake pedal is applied, the pressure on the brake pedal moves a piston in the master cylinder, forcing the brake fluid from the master cylinder through the brake lines and flexible hoses to the calipers and wheel cylinders. The force applied to the brake pedal produces a proportional force on each of the pistons.

The calipers and wheel cylinders contain pistons, which are connected to a disc brake pad or brake shoe. Each output piston pushes the attached friction material against the surface of the rotor or wall of the brake drum, thus slowing down the rotation of the wheel. When pressure on the pedal is released, the pads and shoes return to their released positions. This action forces the brake fluid back through the flexible hose and tubing to the master cylinder.

Disc Brakes

Disc Brakes

Disc Brakes are comprised of a disc (rotor), a caliper assembly, and pads. The caliper is connected to the master cylinder through tubes, hoses and valves that conduct brake fluid through the system.

Drum Brakes

Drum Brakes

Drum Brakes are comprised of a drum and backing plate, a hub or axle assembly, brake shoes, and wheel cylinder. The wheel cylinder is connected to the master cylinder through tubes, hoses and valves that dispenses brake fluid through the system.

Brake Fluid

Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid used to transfer force under pressure from where it is created through hydraulic lines to the braking mechanism near the wheels. Braking produces extreme heat so brake fluid must have a high boiling point to remain effective and must not freeze under operating conditions.

Don’t Put It Off

Brake pad replacement is the most common repair job simply because brakes are designed to wear out. Your brake pads rub on the brake disc to slow and stop your vehicle, so worn pads are the first part to check. The longer you prolong servicing your braking system, the probability of more costly repairs are looming.

From the pads to fluids, calipers to rotors, discs to ABS sensors, Seven oaks Transmission and Auto repair shop can perform brake repair on any make and model car, truck, or SUV. Call or come by for a complete brake inspection today!

These guys are great. Very professional and willing to explain exactly what needs done. One time they tighten things up while fixing another issue and solved a long nagging feeling in the front end with no extra charge.

Adam Fleming

Had a transmission flush a few weeks back, trucks running like a gem, thanks again!

Wes Veldy

Have been having constant problems with my new car, every time I take it to the dealership they say they can’t recreate the problem or they don’t know the conditions I’m putting the car under. It was so refreshing to have someone explain what was wrong with my car and fix it properly the first time! Front desk is very friendly and helpful, they are a little pricey but totally worth having it done right!

Danny Fischer

Very knowledgeable service technicians. Fast service. Very good with prices!! Highly recommend!!

Gwen Toonstra

I want to thank Bob for taking time out of his busy day to assist me with my transmission questions. I will definitely have the Seven Oaks Transmission team work on any future transmission issues.

Kyle Bob and garret are awesome. Great mechanics. Do all the work on my vehicles and antex's vehicles

Mike Richard

Tom and the techs were outstanding and went above and beyond as they took my RV out of storage and serviced it so we could hit the ground running , finishing our cross Canada tour. Very thorough, high quality work. Just honest, reliable, dependable people, and so customer focused. A memorable experience I will pass on to others.

Brad Starr

I have so far had a great experience with Bob and his crew they fixed my electrical issues in my motorhome and found problems with my fan. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I called other shops who pretty much said they wouldn't help me...Terrick diesel... I won't forget how you basically told me to go away! I won't go anywhere else now

Bill Verbing

Fantastic service very freindy staff

B De

Good quality mechanics and top notch front office personel. A pleasure to deal with.

Sol Israel

I took my car to Seven Oaks Transmissions after reading all the good reviews on Google, and I wasn't disappointed.
Tom is friendly, open, and honest, and gave me the all the information I needed to make repair decisions. There was absolutely no pressure to spend more money than I wanted to spend. Plus, they arranged for shuttle service to take me to work after dropping my car off, and back to the garage when the repairs were finished.
I'd definitely recommend this business to anyone!

Kurt Huff

Hands down the best shop I've had my Volvo into. They're thorough, professional and friendly. They've earned my trust and I'll always call them first if my car needs TLC in the future.

Ben Parsons

Very useful support.

Bacon Ranch

Exceptional service here, absolutely top notch. These guys have been around forever and its because they treat people great. Every autoshop should strive to operate like Tom and his crew. Can not say enough good things about them, highly recommend!

Mike Hardy

I'm going to say this is the best place I've went to in a long time they helped my mom out and were very nice and even drove her home I highly recommend them to any one.

Greg Mac

These guys are awesome. Could have easily told me it was a new transmission when it was only a sensor. Thank you , and I know where to send my family/friends now for any automotive problems.


They spend the time and fix it right.

Ted Claeys

Laura Hildebrand

Quick service, knowledgeable and friendly staff

Mike Fuller

Great service and honest advice. I took my truck in for what i thought was a transfer case issue/noise and they spent a while going through it and listing for the noise i was hearing and checking all the know issues with these trucks. They believed it was gear lash/wear in the drive train but recommended that i didn't replace any components as everything was 100% functional and none of the bearings were showing signs (sounds) of wear and they couldn't guarantee that replacing anything would rid me of the noise i was hearing.

After several weeks of reading online and asking other shops for advice and most other sources suggesting a rebuild i found a socket slightly rolling under a floor mat that was hitting the bolt that mounts the seat to the floor. Inside the truck the noise was really muffled but underneath the truck it sounded very loud as the sound was traveling down the bolt and all across they floor board.

Anyhow, I appreciated their honesty and recommending that i don't spend the money on replacing anything as there was no other signs that anything was wrong or worn other then the noise. I will definitely be taking all of my vehicles there in the future as i trust that they are only going to recommend fixing/replacing parts that need to be replaced. They saved me 1500$ :)

You will not find better customer service anywhere else. Great, friendly staff, and reasonable pricing. I told them what I could afford and they gave me my options and didn’t push me to spend more. I will send everyone I know there. Thanks Bob, Frank and staff.

Morgan Bell

Was very impressed with the service here, was having issues with my 4wd system not working properly. They quickly found the issue and repaired as needed, they kept me updated throughout the process. would highly recommend.


This experience was incredible. As a woman I can get a lot of “ask your husband about…” type replies from mechanics. I called and spoke with Frank who listened and treated me like a valued customer. They listened to my concerns and made suggestions. This garage set the bar high for customer service and I will keep recommending them to friends and family.


Stellar service I brought my van to see frank without an appointment for a power steering failure he fit me in and got me back on the road. Forever grateful for their service. Thanks to the team.

Justin J

Really impressed with the level of service from Bob and the rest of the team. I had an emergency with my truck and bob ensured that I was able to get in and get back on the road same day. I highly recommend using seven oaks transmission and will be back for any of our vehicle needs.

Tyler Bad Cop

My F150 Truck handles better both in the wheel and the seat than when I first bought it. Thank you!

Cris Ashton

I had my 4T65 transmission rebuilt 2-1/2 years ago. I wanted to wait a bit before giving my review so I can also comment on how it is with time and mileage on the transmission.

I can happily say that the transmission has been working flawlessly since the rebuild. I could not be happier.

The staff were also excellent to deal with. They clearly explained what is involved in the rebuild and which parts definitely needed replacing and which ones were recommended to have replaced and why they needed replacing.

Edward Wertepny

Had my trans. fluid drained & filled. Service was performed to my satisfaction.


Frankly I did not go there but spoke to them over the phone.

The 5 stars is cos they did not waste my time or theirs and said upfront they don't work on the car that I was looking to get fixed.

He was very nice and polite and suggested another shop who might work on it.

Dave Smith

This company is top notch.Starting with the owner & all of his employees. They worked on my vehicle, and we're very honest about what needed to be done. I would recommend taking your vehicle to this business anytime. Absolutely professional from top to bottom. Very polite, efficient, & courtesy people!! Thanks guys! Great

Bert Jamault

I have been bringing my vehicles to Seven Oaks for several years - and for good reason. They always take the time to clearly explain the situation with the options and never fail to resolve the issue. Bob and his staff are excellent and provide top notch customer service. The latest repair performed on my vehicle made it feel like a new car!

This is the best garage that I've ever dealt with - period. Highly recommended!

Rebecca Clifton

It was a true pleasure working with Bob, Frank and the rest of the staff here. With an old car and very little mechanical knowledge, you truly have to trust the process. They were transparent, straightforward and provided numerous detailed updates which made them so easy to trust and easy to work with. I can’t thank them enough.

Tracy Ball

This place truly cares about their clients.

Mr Wolf

Work was completed as requested. I was updated with phone calls to ensure I wanted to go forward with the work. I was shown the parts that were replaced after. Family one shop. Honest people. Wait list to get your car in is about 3 weeks, but that's reflective of the quality of service you're going to receive. Highly recommend!


Took one of my trucks to get a part repaired connected to the transmission and the service and turn around time was amazing. These are very honest people who will not charge you extra repairs if your vehicles do not need them. Great experience !

Ted Sobieski

Had a very informative and helpful discussion with the owner I believe.
