Tired of squeaky brakes or does your brake pedal go to the floor?
One of the most important safety features of any vehicle is maintaining the brakes. Unfortunately, most drivers overlook this simple fact. If you keep your brake maintenance on schedule, you can always avoid costly repairs and also avoid any collisions in the near future. Here are some of the signs that you need to replace the brakes in your vehicle.
When driving if you press the brake pad and there is a vibration, then your brakes need to be replaced immediately. It’s commonly referred to as pulsating brakes and is a condition caused when the brakes are completely worn-out or warped because of too much heat. In this case, the brakes pads can either be re-machined or replaced to solve the problem.
Thin Brake Pads
Try looking through the spokes of the wheel to see if you need new brakes. If the brakes pads are thin, such that you can see less than a quarter inch that’s visible then you definitely need to replace your brakes.
Clicking Or Screeching Sounds
If you apply your brakes when driving and hear a clicking sound, then they need to be replaced. Most cars have a device that prevents rattling of the brake pads when they are depressed. So, if you hear a clicking sound, then there is a problem.
On the other hand, if there are screeching sounds (usually high-pitched) when the brake pad is pushed down; it’s a sign that you need new brakes. You might hear these sounds when the windows are completely pulled up so check carefully before going on the road with worn out brake pads.
