Do You Need New Brakes?

When it comes to maintaining your brakes, the best way to approach it is to understand the various warning signals they can give you. Unlike other components that may not be as clear, your vehicle’s braking system has a handful of clear signs that indicate its condition. Wondering what some of those signals are? No worries, the Advanced Automotive team is here to help you! Here are some signs that it may be time for a brake repair!

Squeaking or Squealing

If you hear these noises, you should think about getting your brake pads changed soon. This indicates that your brake pads have almost worn out. Some brake pads are built with springs or metal “hairs” in them that’ll slightly scrape the metal surface when the pads have reached its minimal thickness level. If left unattended, your brake pads will eventually wear out and your steel calipers will be making contact with the brake rotors. Not good!

Spongy Brake Pedal

Normally, brakes should be tight and responsive to your touch. If you have to press down further to activate your brakes, then you are dealing with spongy brakes. A typical cause for this is air or moisture being trapped in the brake line. Make sure you visit an Advanced Automotive technician as soon as possible or face yourself being in a “no brakes” scenario.

Grinding

If you hear this noise, please bring your vehicle to our shop immediately. This sound indicates that your brake pads have completely worn out and there is currently metal-on-metal contact between your steel calipers and your brake rotor. If left unattended, this contact could leave deep grooves in your rotor or even warp the disc, both of which are very expensive repairs!
