Signs You Need Brake Service

While it takes the skilled eye of a mechanic to know for sure, there are some things you may notice while driving around town that could indicate it’s time for brake service. These signs include:

  • Grinding sound
  • Vibrations in the steering wheel or brake pedal
  • Pulling to the right or left when braking

If you notice any of these signs, don’t wait to have a mechanic check it out. There are several components that make up your braking system, so if you wait too long to have your brakes serviced, you may need multiple parts repaired.

Car Brakes

Components of Your Braking System

As mentioned, there are several different components that make up your braking system. While they are all different parts, they all work together to ensure your brakes are running at 100 percent. Let’s take a look at each of these parts.

Brake Pad

Brake pads sandwich your rotor. When pressure is applied to your pedal, the brake pad will squeeze against the rotor and transfer this pressure. By applying pressure and friction, your car will start to slow down.

Rotors

These disks are a crucial part of your brake system. They can often overheat and warp over time because of the friction frequently applied to them.

When these warp, the surface of your rotors is no longer flat. When this happens, you may notice your brakes are a bit jittery.

Calipers

Calipers are important because they are the connecting piece between the brake pad and rotor.
