Don't Drag Your Feed on Brake Repairs
Are your Brakes trying to tell you something? Your brakes are important, and understanding the sounds and vibrations they make can help you save on future costly repairs. It can be easy to put off repairs by ignoring some of these common signs of trouble. Knowing what these signs are trying to tell you will help you get the repairs made and give you peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle will be ready when you need it. Brake dust, pulsing in the brake pedal, scraping sounds, and grinding noises all mean something.
Here is a quick translator guide for you.
Excess dirty build-up on one rim - What it can tell you: “My brake caliper or brake pads may be sticking”
A pulsing brake pedal - What it can tell you: “I have been working overtime to stop help you stop, but my rotors may have overheated and are warped”
Scraping sounds - What it can tell you: “We have given it all that we have: It’s time for new brake pads!”
Grinding noises - What it can tell you: “All of me braking material is gone. All I have left is metal-to-metal!"
