When it comes to brake maintenance, it’s important to have them consistently serviced. To ensure your brakes are performing at their best, you need to look out for signs of brake deterioration. Knowing these signs will allow you to get ahead of a minor issue before it worsens. If you suspect brake problems in your vehicle, make sure you look for these signs of deterioration during your next drive!
Modern technology has allowed vehicles to come jam-packed with a variety of different features and notification systems. One of these systems includes the brake warning light, which will inform drivers of when the brake pads have reached a minimum level of thickness. If you see this light, make sure that you schedule a brake pad replacement at your first convenience! Although the pads are technically fine, they will quickly wear out and your metal calipers will be squeezing on the metal brake disc, which could cause serious damage to the overall braking system.
When pressing on the brake pedal, there should be a firm resistance and quick response from the brakes. If you notice that you have to press further on the brake pedal for the brakes to activate, then you are dealing with a spongy brake pedal. This is typically caused by air or moisture being trapped in the brake lines and you’ll need to have them bled in order to remove it. If not promptly handled, the brake pedal will eventually reach the floor of your vehicle and you won’t be able to activate the brakes!
