During the spring and summer, we tend to see more vehicles on the road. This means more traffic and ultimately, more stop and go for your brakes. Some drivers associate the warmer weather with less deterioration on their brakes, but it can actually exacerbate wear and tear. Therefore, before it’s too late, schedule your Oakville brake repair as soon as possible and get a head start on your adventures on the road.
Look for wear on your brake pads through the space between your wheel spokes. The outside pad is pressed against a metal rotor. You should see ¼ inch of a pad if you see less than that you should get them replaced.
Listen to your brakes. If you’re hearing a grinding or growling noise when you brake, this is a sure sign that your brake pads have worn down and need replacing.
Check your brakes’ responsiveness. If you have to keep increasing your foot’s pressure on the pedal, this could be an air leak in the braking system, in the air hose, or a brake fluid leak.
If your car is leaning or pulling towards one direction when you brake, this could be a sign that your brake linings are wearing unevenly. This problem may require a brake adjustment.
