Car Brake Check - Important /Must Read for Safety

Brake Pads
As the brakes are applied repeatedly over thousands of kilometers, the brake pads gradually wear dsm_Brake-Pads.jpgown, reducing their ability to stop the car.  It can be dangerous to wait too long to change your brake pads. 

If you neglect your brake pad maintenance for too long, the result is damage to the rotors/Dics and braking system often requiring the need to have the brake rotors machined or replaced.

Proper inspection and maintenance keeps your car in top working condition with minimum cost.

But how do you know when it's time to change your brake pads? Luckily, it's not difficult to determine when your vehicle is ready for most brake work.

sm_Rotors-(2).jpgDisc brakes usually include a part called a wear indicator. A wear indicator is a small piece of metal attached to the brake pad that contacts the brake rotor when the pad material has been worn down to a certain level. When the wear indicator grinds against the rotor, it makes a squealing noise as you apply the brakes.

This noise is a signal which tells you it's time to have your brakes examined.

In other words, noisy brakes aren't something to mess around with. If you hear a sound when you apply the brakes in your vehicle, have them checked out as soon as possible.
