Signs You Might Need Brake Replacement

Signs You Might Need Brake Replacement

Your brakes are one of the most important safety features of your vehicle and it is critical that they stay in good working order at all times. Because they use friction to slow down your vehicle, they naturally undergo a lot of wear and tear. Keep your eyes and ears open for signs that it is time for brake service or brake replacement. By getting your brake pads changed before they completely wear away, you are able to protect more expensive parts of your braking system, like the brake rotors or calipers.

Look for these signs you may need brake replacement:

  • If your brake pads have less than ¼ inch thickness remaining, they need to be replaced.
  • Check under your parked car for puddles of brake fluid.

Listen for these signs you may need brake replacement:

  • Screeching when braking: Most brake pads have a small metal shim called an indicator that causes a loud screech, warning you that it is time for brake service.
  • Grinding when braking: When the metal parts of the brake rub together because the pads are completely gone, a grinding sound is the result.

Feel for these signs you may need brake replacement:

  • Your brakes are less responsive: This could indicate a leak in your braking system.
  • If you feel your car pulling while braking, there could be a problem.
  • Vibration could be a sign that your rotors have gotten warped.

When in doubt, have your braking system checked by a trusted professional. Don’t risk your own safety and the safety of your passengers by waiting.
