How Do You Know If Your Brakes Need Servicing?

The major reason for car servicing is to prevent major breakdowns in future. So, you don’t have to wait until your brakes fail for you to have them checked. While most people insist on taking their cars for servicing after a year or two, regular checks in between go a long way in saving you money and guaranteeing your safety and peace of mind on the road. 

There are different ways you can tell if your car brakes need checking. They include, but are not limited to: 

  • Soft and spongy feel: Your brakes aren’t supposed to feel soft during operation. When this happens, it is an indicator that your brake fluid isn’t functioning as it should, mostly as a result of air getting trapped in the brake lines. At other times, soft brakes are from a faulty master cylinder.
  • Squeaking: You might notice a grinding or squeaking sound coming from your brakes while in use. This is as a result of worn brakes that need prompt replacement or you could end up with a bigger problem.
  • Pulsating brake pedal: Your brakes shouldn’t have pulses when you place your foot on them. When they do, it could be a pointer that your brake rotors aren’t flat or parallel with the plane of rotation. Having them checked can prevent worse damages.
  • Old brake fluid: It is easy to assume your brake fluid is okay as long as your car brakes are performing. This, however, isn’t always the case. Without regular checks, your brake fluid could absorb moisture leading it to them losing their effectiveness. If left unattended, this might grow into an expensive occurrence.
  • Warning lights: The reason as to why the warning lights are placed on your dashboard is so you don’t miss them. When your brake’s warning lights blink, you do not want to ignore them as they could be notifying you of a problem. As soon as you notice the blink, it’s time to have them checked.
  • High Handbrake: After using your car for a while, you can tell the height of your handbrake. If you notice a change, even slight, in their height, you’ll need to take your car to have it adjusted. Also, be keen to observe if the handbrake reaches its path’s end to avoid failing the MOT.
  • Wheels Pulling To The Left or Right:  The expected effect when you press your foot on the brake pedal is that your car should come to a stop and remain in a straight line. But when none of that happens, say, your car pulls to right or left, when you step on the pedal, consider it a sign that your brakes need fixing.

By now, I believe you understand the importance and need of regularly having your car brakes and clutches checked. If you would love to discuss this further, give us a call to book an appointment.
