Know When It’s Time For Brake Repair
You likely take your safety and that of your passengers seriously, but perhaps you’re wondering how you’ll know that it’s time for brake repair. We’re glad you asked, and we’re here to help. First, the best practice is to have us service your brakes periodically beyond the once over of the annual inspection. Beyond that, there are some signs you can watch for between visits that should prompt you to make an appointment. Obviously, if your stopping distances are getting longer, it’s time to see us. Another indicator is a high-pitched squealing that you hear when you apply brakes. This usually means the brake pads have worn below acceptable thickness and need changing. Also, you may feel unusual vibration or a sideways tug when you’re braking. These new sensations are warnings that something is amiss, too. A burning odor may also be a sign of brake trouble. It might tell the tale of a stuck brake caliper or alert you to the fact that you forgot to disengage the emergency brake. Finally, if the brake pedal feels spongy under your foot or seems to go too far toward the floor when pressed, you may lack a sufficient amount of brake fluid, particularly if a leak has developed.
