Do You Need Brake Service?
Outside of regular maintenance, the best way to maintain your brakes high level of performance is to actively monitor their condition. This includes checking the components themselves and looking out for any signs of degradation. You’ll be able to get ahead of any problems by doing so, which in turn will save you money on your next service. Here are a few signs of brake wear-and-tear that you should look out for!
If you suspect your vehicle’s braking system is starting to deteriorate, listen to them while in use. There are specific sounds you want to look for — squeaking or squealing and grinding. If you hear squeaking or squealing, that means your brakes pads have reached their minimum level of thickness and must be replaced soon. This sound usually occurs due to a metal spring or “hairs” found within the brake pads. Once it reaches a certain level of thickness, the spring or hairs will gently scrape the brake disc and create the sound. If you hear grinding, that means the brake pads have completely worn out and there is currently metal-on-metal contact between the brake pads and brake rotor. This will cause serious damage to your brake rotor and if not handled promptly, will have you facing an expensive service bill.
When using your brakes, they should respond to even the lightest touch of the brake pedal. This is because, at any moment, you may need your brakes to get you out of a dangerous situation. If you notice you’re pushing further down on the brake pedal to activate your brakes, that’s a sign of a spongy brake pedal. You will need to have one of our technicians perform a thorough brake inspection to determine the cause. If not handled quickly, the pedal will eventually reach the floor of your vehicle and you will not be able to activate your brakes.
