Don’t Take Your Safety For Granted
Do you hear noises when you start to brake? Are you feeling your brakes grinding, vibrating or pulsating when you press down on the brake pedal? Any of these can be signs that your brakes need servicing or repaired. Your brakes are the number 1 safety device for your vehicle. Don’t neglect your brakes and put your family at risk.
A warning sign that your brakes need to be replaced
It’s dangerous if you wait too long to change your brake pads. As your vehicle brakes are being applied with repeated motion over thousands of miles. The brake pads will gradually wear down, reducing their ability to stop your vehicle.
But how do you know when it’s time to change your brake pads?
It’s not difficult to determine when your vehicle is ready to have your brakes inspected or repaired. Disc brakes usually include a part called a wear indicator.
A wear indicator is a small piece of metal attached to the brake pad. It contacts the brake rotor when the pad material has become worn down to a certain level. When the wear indicator grinds against the rotor, it makes a squealing noise as you apply the brakes. This noise is a signal which tells you it’s time to have your brakes examined.
In other words, noisy brakes aren’t something to mess around with. If you hear sounds when you apply the brakes in your vehicle, have them checked out as soon as possible.
