Understanding Your Braking System

In order to truly know if you need brake service, it helps to get a stronger sense of your braking system and how it works. It all starts with the brake pedal; you press it and it sends fluid through the brake lines. This causes the pistons to drive into the master cylinder. Once this occurs, it causes the calipers to clamp, which then forces the brake pads against the rotors, which causes the spin of your wheels to slow down, and with enough force, to stop.

Signs That You Need Brake Repair & Service

There are actually quite a few ways that you can tell that you’ll need to service or repair your brakes. Luckily, there are various ways that you can tell, with sound and with feeling. Below are a few notable signs that you’ll want to look out for when you feel like there’s an issue with your brakes.

  • Squealing: This is usually a sign that your brake pads are worn, because each pad includes a wear indicator. It’s a metal tab inside, that once exposed after considerable wear, will create this sound when it makes contact with the rotor.
  • Grinding Sound: If you hear a grinding sound, it may mean that your caliper is broke or worn.
  • Squishy Brake Pedal: This is an indication that there’s air in your brake lines. You’ll want to have your brakes bled to literally clear the air so you can have full function of your brakes.
  • Vehicle Pulls to the Side When Braking: If you notice that your vehicle veers to one side when you press the brake pedal, it could mean that one of your calipers is either misaligned or broken.
