Top Signs Your Car Requires Brake Repair

We all know that the most important safety system in our vehicles is the brakes; however, can you detect the vital signs of failing brakes and have them repaired as soon as possible to keep you, your passengers, and other road users safe? Fortunately, we were able to obtain all of the necessary information from our expert technicians at one of our convenient Eurofit centres and write them down in this handy blog for you.

SQUEALING/SCREECHING NOISE:

A high-pitched squeal while driving is usually an indication that your brake pads need to be replaced. This is also frequently the first sign of brake failure.

VIBRATIONS/UNUSUAL MOTIONS:

If you notice vibrations or other unusual motions when applying pressure to your brakes, there's a high chance your rotors are warped. 

WARNING LIGHTS: 

It is critical to always check the warning lights on your dashboard as soon as they illuminate. The brake warning light will appear when you apply the handbrake. If it continues to illuminate red whilst driving, it could be down to one or more reasons such as; low brake fluid, worn brake pads or mechanical faults within the system. 

SOFT BRAKE PEDAL:

The most common cause of a soft/spongy brake pedal is air in the brake line(s). When air enters the brake lines, it can obstruct the flow of brake fluid, causing the brake pedal to feel spongy or soft. If your brakes feel soft or spongy, it's time to change or flush the brake fluid.
