Brake Service FAQs
Squeaky brakes occur for a variety of reasons. Often it’s harmless, the result of something like temporary moisture in the brake pads. But continuous squeals or brakes grinding should be taken very seriously as they may mean it’s time for new brake pads or shoes. Worn brakes can mean longer stopping distances and difficulty stopping in emergency situations. And rotors and drums that wear too thin can even become over-stressed to the point of cracking or breaking.
No, it’s not normal. And spongy brakes are definitely not a good sign. A very low or spongy pedal means there’s likely air in the hydraulic lines of your car’s brake system. This creates low hydraulic pressure. If the hydraulic pressure gets too low, your car’s brake pads or shoes may no longer be able to apply enough force and friction to safely stop your car. An immediate inspection of your car’s brake system is strongly advised.
When the steering and brake pedal shake this is usually because the disc rotors on your vehicle are no-longer running true (or warped). To rectify this, the disc rotors must be machined or if they have been machined before and are found to be under size, they must be replaced. Our expert technicians will be able to solve any steering wheel problems.
This is maybe because the shock absorbers are worn. A worn shock absorber can increase your braking distance by up to 20%.
