Do You Need Service?
Outside of having your vehicle’s braking system routinely serviced, it’s also essential for you to understand when it’s beginning to deteriorate. Whether it’s due to failure or simple wear-and-tear, there are a variety of reasons why your vehicle’s braking system may start to struggle. If you suspect something is wrong within your vehicle’s system, pay attention to these standard warning signals!
Squeaking or Squealing
If you hear squeaking or squealing while using the brakes, that’s your vehicle’s system telling you the brake pads are worn out. This sound typically comes from a spring or metal hairs gently scraping the brake disc, which can only happen when the brake pads are thin. Make sure you replace the brake pads at your earliest convenience, as continuing to drive with thinning brake pads could lead to problems in the future!
If you begin to hear grinding while using the brakes, that’s when you need to worry and act quickly. Grinding indicates the brake pads have entirely worn out and there’s now metal-on-metal contact between the calipers and brake disc. This is awful for the braking system, and it will cause massive damage. Please schedule service as soon as possible to avoid any additional damage!
