Signs Your Brakes Need Service

If your brakes need attention, you're likely to notice a few warning signs. Of course, the best way to gauge your brakes' condition is to bring your car in for regular service. Keep an eye out for these common indicators that your brakes might need repair:

  • Squealing, screeching, or grinding sounds when you brake
  • Soft or spongy brake pedal
  • Car pulling to one side when you brake
  • Worn brake pads with less than a quarter-inch of material left

Why is Brake Service So Important?

Your brakes endure a lot of stress. They're the parts that stop your fast-moving wheels so that you can stop or slow down safely. Regular brake service ensures that your brakes are not too worn out to perform their job. It's also what gives our team the opportunity to catch brake problems before they get worse.

When Should I Schedule Brake Service?

It's generally a good idea to have your brakes checked every six months. Scheduling a brake check at the same time as a tire rotation is a great way to remember to get it done.

How to Change Your Brake Pads Yourself

  • Remove your car's wheel
  • Remove the slider bolt and rotate the caliper up
  • Pull out your worn brake pads
  • Slide in the replacement brake pads
  • Retract the pistons
  • Check your brake fluid level
  • Put the caliper back in place and reset the slider bolt
  • Repeat these steps for the other side
  • Test drive your car in a safe environment to ensure everything works properly

If you're not feeling up to repairing your brakes yourself, don't fret. Our team of experts is ready to help. Schedule professional brake maintenance at our service center today!
