Know The Warning Signs Of Brake Damage

Knowing how to spot the early warning signs of brake damage helps vehicle owners prevent costly damage to their brakes, making their vehicle safer and saving them money in major repairs down the road.


PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 30, 2013 - PHOENIX -- Many people underestimate the importance of the braking system on their vehicle. In fact, it may be the most important component on your car. Without it, you would be driving at 60 mph down the road with no way to stop. Knowing how to spot the early warning signs of brake damage may help you to avoid costly damage to your brakes. If you notice any warning signs, brake repair in Phoenix is essential to get your car back into working condition.

How Brakes Work

As you step on your brakes, brake fluid located in the master cylinder generates hydraulic pressure on the brake caliper, which is a pair of padded clamps surrounded by brake pads. This pressure forces the brake pads against the rotor, and can cause the vehicle to slow down or stop completely. When the rotor stops, the car does as well.

Warning Signs

The most common signs of brake wear and tear include:

  •   Brake pedal thumps as you apply the brakes
  •   Noise as you step onto the brake pedal
  •   Brake pedal feels different when you press on it
  •   Vehicle pulls to the side during braking
  •   Need to continually add brake fluid into the master cylinder

Wear And Tear

It is normal to experience wear and tear on your brakes, causing them to require replacement. If you ignore the initial warning signs, your wear may get to the point where the brakes are metal-to-metal. This will then require a more costly drum or rotor replacement. The wear and tear on your vehicle may be affected by your vehicle type, driving habits, the quality of brakes you have, as well as the road conditions where you drive the most.
