Signs That It's Time For A Brake Change

  • Listen: One of the easiest ways for you to tell whether your brakes are in need of maintenance or repairs is to listen for noises. Worn down brake pads will often make a high pitched screeching noise because the pads are worn out resulting on metal on metal friction.
  • Grinding or Vibrating: If you hear a grinding noise or feel vibrating when you apply the brakes, it likely has to do with your calipers. A Grinding noise occurs the disc and the calipers are rubbing together, which can end up scratching and damaging your rotors. Vibrating happens when your rotors get warped and can only be detected when applying the brakes.
  • Decreased Effectiveness: If it's taking your vehicle longer to stop than before or your you have to apply more pressure to the brake pedal than before to get it to respond, it's an indication that the brake line is leaking.
  • Pull to One Side: If when you apply the brakes your vehicle pulls to one side of the road, it's an indication that the brake lines are unevenly wearing.
