Signs of problems with brakes

BrakesA number of different things can indicate that there is an issue with the braking system. Firstly there is a light on the dashboard that will turn on. This indicates that they are due for inspection.

If you hear grinding noises when braking or a metallic squeal while driving there could be a problem. The grinding noise typically indicates that the brake pads are at the end of their life. It could also be due to a lack of lubrication on the brake drum. The metal squeal can be the result of the wear indicators on the brake pads.

Uneven brake rotors can cause your steering to wobble or vibrate when you apply the brakes. Ideally the rotor should be smooth and an even thickness. Unfortunately they can wear unevenly and may even encounter issues such as rust.

The brake pedal should provide the right level of resistance when you press it. This indicates that the brakes are doing their job. If it gets softer or you can press the pedal all the way to the floor, you need to get a service immediately.
