Signs That You May Need a Brake Repair
- Worn brake pads. If you can see your brake pads through the spokes of your wheels, check for wear. The pad will be pressed against a metal rotor. If you see less than a quarter-inch of pad against the rotor, you may want to have your brakes inspected.
- Pulling. If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking it could mean one of a few things. Your brakes could be wearing unevenly or they may just need an adjustment. It could also mean that there is foreign matter in the brake fluid.
- Vibration. A vibrating or pulsating brake pedal is often a sign of warped rotors. The vibration will feel similar to the feedback given during a panicked stop in a car equipped with anti-lock brakes.
- Grinding or growling. A loud metallic, grinding or growling noise is caused when your brake pads have worn down completely. The noise is created by the disc and caliper when they rub against one another. If this happens your mechanic may suggest that your rotors be turned or replaced.
If you notice any of these signs and believe that you’re in need of a brake repair, it’s important that you schedule a service appointment. It’ll help ensure your safety and give you peace of mind.
