Is it Time for Brake Service in Stoney Creek?

Is it Time for Brake Service in Stoney Creek?

Eventually every part on your vehicle will need to be replaced, for the sake of the vehicle's integrity and your safety. Especially when it comes to your brakes. Worn down brakes can lead to some dangerous situations on the Stoney Creek roads. Do you recognize when it's time to have your brakes serviced? Look and listen for some of the following indications:

  • Your brake pads should be at least a quarter of an inch thick. Any less, and it's time to install new pads.
  • Constant grinding when you brake probably means that your brake pads have completely worn down, and your calipers and rotors are rubbing together.
  • Squealing brakes is pretty normal under wet road conditions. But if your brakes are consistently squealing, it could be a built in indication that you need brake service.
  • If your brake pedal is soft, meaning it takes extra effort when pushing the brake pedal for your brakes to engage, you could be low on brake fluid, or they need to be serviced.
