Along with having the brakes inspected and serviced regularly, a great way to maintain quality performance is to understand when the system is beginning to fail. By knowing the signs, you’re able to get ahead of any problems before they get too serious. Here are a few brake malfunction warning signals that you should be aware of.
When using your vehicle’s brakes, you should never hear any sounds coming from them. If you begin to hear squeaking or squealing, that’s the system subtly telling you that the brake pads are about to wear out. The sound typically comes from a metal spring or “hairs” gently scraping the brake disc. Although the pads are fine for the time being, we suggest switching out the worn pads for fresh ones at your first convenience.
If you hear this sound when using the brakes, please stop driving your vehicle immediately. This indicates that the brake pads have completely worn out and that there’s metal-on-metal contact between the calipers and brake disc. This can cause serious damage to the brake rotor, so we recommend service as soon as possible to avoid any further damage.
