Brake Service - What are some of the warning signs that my brakes need repair?

Common brake issues often present well-recognized symptoms like a shaky steering wheel or a squeaky noise. Most of us are familiar with these signs and understand that they indicate a brake problem and a need to check the brakes. However, there are also numerous other, perhaps less apparent, signals your brakes might be giving you that should not be overlooked. When it comes to brakes, paying attention to the following warning signs is vital:

  • Brake pedal shakes or pulsates when braking
  • Steering wheel rocks side to side
  • Reduced Stopping power
  • Screeching or grinding noise when braking

Brake pad replacement

Brakes are inherently subject to wear and tear. The brake pads exert friction against the brake disc to halt your vehicle. They are typically the first elements to show signs of wear. If you notice any issues with your new pads or your braking system, it’s crucial to have your brake pads checked as a priority.

However, a comprehensive inspection can reveal deeper-rooted issues, as well as distinguish between what can be repaired and what needs to be replaced. Brake pad replacement stands as the most frequently performed repair task for automotive brake systems.

How often should I get my brake Pads inspected?

Routine brake service inspections are key to detecting potential issues or brake problems early on. As a general rule, it’s recommended to have your brakes inspected at least once a year or every 12,000 miles. However, if you frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic or traverse hilly terrains, it’s advisable to have them checked more frequently or during routine maintenance.

Let's not forget about brake fluid exchange

Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that is formulated with chemicals to shield against corrosion. However, these chemicals can wear over time, diminishing their protective abilities. As a general guideline, it’s recommended to replace the brake fluid every 30,000 miles or every two years. But it’s essential to recognize that various types of brake fluid may have differing service intervals. Therefore, we strongly recommend referring to your own vehicle owner’s manual to obtain precise guidance or visit Blu Automotive and we’ll be happy to check your brake fluid.

Frequently Asked Questions

Brake pads are a critical component of your vehicle’s braking system. They are the parts that come into direct contact with the brake rotors (discs worn pads) to slow down or stop your vehicle when you apply the brakes. Brake pads are typically made of a high-friction material which is bonded to a sturdy metal backing plate.
Brake rotors, also known as brake discs, are what your vehicle’s brake pads clamp down on to stop the wheels from spinning. They are usually made of cast iron or composite materials like reinforced carbon. Rotors play a critical role in dissipating the heat generated by new brakes during braking.
Brake pads and brake rotors have varying lifespans primarily dependent on driving habits and conditions. Brake pads typically last anywhere between 30,000 and 70,000 miles. Rotor wear occurs slower than both brake rotor and pad wear, but their longevity is also influenced by factors such as the type of vehicle and the quality of the rotors and pads used. It’s recommended to always replace rotors and brake pads on both sides of the vehicle at the same time to maintain effective braking.
Yes, brake fluid should be changed periodically as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer, usually every two years or 20,000 miles, to maintain optimal braking performance and prevent corrosion in the braking system.
Brake squeaking is often caused by normal wear and tear on brake lines, such as a thinning brake pad, or accumulation of brake dust. Other causes can include the use of low-quality brake pads, rotors getting rusty after exposure to moisture, or lack of lubrication on the brake parts. If the squeaking persists, it’s best to have your brake system checked by a professional to ensure safety.
