Signs You Need a Brake Repair
When it comes to maintaining your brakes, the best thing you can do is to watch your driving habits. Making sure you’re not stopping abruptly or riding the brake pedal will help extend the life of your brake pads. With that said, eventually your brakes will wear out and you’ll have to go in for a brake repair or replacement. Fortunately, there are plenty of signs that’ll inform you when it’s time to get those brakes inspected! Unsure of what those signs are? Here are things you should keep your eye (or ear) out for!
Squeaking or Squealing
When you hear these sounds from your brakes, it indicates that your brake pads are wearing out and you should have them replaced soon. A lot of brake pads will come equipped with a small spring or metal “hairs” that will scrape the metal when the pads have reached a minimal amount of thickness. Make sure to visit our shop and have those brake pads replaced as soon as you can!
If you start hearing this sound, please stop driving and bring your car into our shop immediately. This indicates that your brake pads have completely worn out and your unprotected steel calipers are now rubbing against the brake rotors. If left unattended, this will eventually lead to deep grooves in your brake rotor and could eventually warp the brake rotor entirely. This can cost you hundreds of dollars on repairs or you may have to completely replace the brake rotor, which is also very expensive.
When drivers use their brakes, they expect them to be tight and responsive. It’s designed this way so if you find yourself in a dangerous situation, you can quickly stop and avoid it. If you find yourself pressing the brake pedal a lot further than normal, you have spongy brakes. Though there is a handful of problems that cause it, the main one is air and moisture being trapped in your brake line. Make sure to bring your car into our shop before you find yourself in a “no brakes” scenario!
