Signs For A Brake Repair
During your car’s lifecycle, you will have to attend to its brakes. Installing new brakes, or repairing your current ones, ensures that when you are on the road you are keeping yourself and others driving around you safe. Fortunately, there are many signs that indicate when it’s time for a brake repair. Unsure of what to look for? No worries, the Lawrence Automotive team is here to help you out:
Screeching and Squeaking Noises
This is a common noise that indicates that it’s time for a brake inspection. Usually, the brake pads have worn out to a point where the padding between the steel it was protecting and the rotor is thin. Some vehicle manufacturers even have a built-in spring that makes the sounds well before the pads wear out to a dangerous level.
If you hear this sound, please stop your car and contact Lawrence Automotive immediately. When you hear grinding, that means that your brakes pads have completely worn out and the steel it was protecting is now rubbing against the rotor. This can cause significant damage to your car’s rotor and if left unchecked, can leave deep grooves on it. Depending on the damage, the rotor may not be repairable and must be replaced.
Spongy brakes are when you have to press further down on your brakes then you normally do. This is typically the first sign of brake deterioration and it’s best to see a Lawrence Automotive technician as soon as possible. Since this is commonly caused by an issue with brake fluid, it can be prevented with routine maintenance. If left unattended, your brake pedal could eventually hit the floor and leave you in a dangerous “I have no brakes” situation.
