Sure Signs That Your Brakes Need Servicing
There are two ways for people to check for wear and tear of their brakes: by listening and looking. It is easy to look at the rotor’s condition through the wheel spokes. There should be about 1/4 inches on the pad. The following are sure indications that brakes need servicing.
- The car will pull to the left or right while braking with worn pads, if there is foreign matter in the brake fluid, or if the brake lines are wearing.
- Another sign brakes may need servicing is if there is little responsiveness when braking. A sure sign is if the pedal sinks to the floor. There may be a leak in a brake line, an air leak in the brake hose, or low brake fluid. Check for brake fluid on the ground after parking the car.
- Warped rotors could be the cause of pulsations when braking. If your brakes seem to be functioning less than 100 percent, call and set an appointment at our dealership today.
