BRAKE SERVICE…IS IT TIME?

Brake repair is a service you will need no matter what kind of vehicle you drive. Whether you hit the road for long road trips or barely cruise around town, you will eventually need some sort of brake repair done. There is no escaping this service since brakes are a wearable item on your vehicle. And that extended warranty you were tricked into buying will not cover brake work. Luckily, brake repair does not take tremendously long and is generally a mid-priced service. As far as how often you need to have brakes done, that varies per car and driver. While brake pads are generally good for 35-40K miles on average, we all have different driving habits, braking habits, and we are all around different driving conditions.

I think it’s best if we break down brake repair a little farther.

THE BRAKE SYSTEM

You may be interested in how the brake system works in yourvehicle. It helps to understand the basic of brakes, so you know what to look foras you travel along. Here are the most basic descriptions of the main brake components inside your vehicle.

Rotor: The disk rotor is the componentthat spins right alongside the tires. It is sandwiched between the brake pads, which are being held on by the calipers. When you hit the brakes, the caliper forces the brake pads against the spinning rotor, which creates an enormous amount of friction to slows the rotation of the wheel.

Brake Pads: This is the main brake component you hear people talking about changing out. It is no secret they are one of the most wearable items on a car since it has an incredibly stressful job. The whole role of the brake pad is to create the friction against the rotor. Not all brake pads are created equal.There are ceramic, semi-metallic, and organic pads. All will change up your driving performance.

Calipers: The calipers use the hydraulic force from the brake pedal to squeeze the brake pads to the rotors.The caliper assembly is made up of the caliper brackets, slider pins, dust boots, and caliper piston. All these items need to be in good shape to function correctly.

HEARING NOISES, SEEING LIGHTS?

The Squeal: A good indicator you might want to check your brakes is hearing squealing, or squeaking, when you press your brake pedal. This is generally your first sign of brake failure.As a safety feature, most brakes are designed to squeal when they start to wear down.They will get progressively louder as the pad decays further. Eventually, they will fail if not attended to. So don’t ignore your cars warnings. Since not all pads are the same, yours may not be designed to squeal. Don’t worry, there are other warnings in place.

A Rough Stop: Another indicator you may need brakes is shaking or vibrating when attempting to stop the vehicle. This can be a sign of warped rotors. Take time to get that looked at. Your vehicle should come to a smooth stop every time. Anything less is pointing to an issue inside the braking system.

Howling or Grinding: You may hear a howling type of noise when braking. Or it may sound likegrinding. This means you have ignored your squeaking warning and you are more than likely out of brake pads. The noise you are hearing is metal grinding on metal, and it really needs immediate attention. Your brakes are not shape if this is occurring.

Brake Service Light: Your vehicle may have a Brake Service Light. This light is specifically dedicated to your vehicle’s braking system and is not to be confused with your Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). If this light comes on it could mean several things pending your make and model.image 2021 04 16T04 54 41 750Z Get familiar with what your dash lights mean so you know what your car needs. You can find that info in your owner’s manual, or online.

BRAKE INSPECTIONS!

FAILURE TO STOP

If your brake pedal goes soft, which means you can push it down farther than normal, it’s pretty probable your brake pads are gone. But it also could mean you have low brake fluid, have air stuck in the brake lines, or it could point to your master cylinder.All of these items are of a more serious nature and need to be taken to your local garage immediately.
