Signs You Need Brake Repairs
Unlike other parts and systems that can be difficult to diagnose, the brake system provides drivers with a lot of information if you know what to look and listen for. If you suspect any issues with your brakes, here are common problems you may experience and the warning signs that come with it:
- Worn Brake Pads: Used to help protect the calipers, the brake pads allow the calipers to safely clamp around the brake disc and slow down your vehicle. Over time, these pads begin to wear down and, if you do not act quickly, the calipers can be exposed. How can you tell if the pads are worn? The best way is to listen to the brakes during usage. If you hear squeaking or squealing while braking, this is a clear sign the pads are worn. If you hear any grinding, please get to our shop immediately, as this indicates major damage is happening within the brakes.
- Spongy Pedal: Although the amount of pressure you place on the brake pedal varies on the vehicle (some vehicles require more pressure), you should have a general sense and feeling of how much pressure you need to apply in your vehicle. If you have to apply additional pressure on the pedal to activate the brakes, this is a serious sign that something is wrong. This usually occurs when air or moisture is trapped in the brake lines, and, unfortunately, you will need professional help to get it out.
