It is important to check brakes regularly so you can spot issues early and for your safety and also prevent repair costs. To prolong the life of your brakes avoid harsh braking and accelerating which will make them wear quicker. Here are some signs to look out for when your brake pads are wearing:

Screeching Noises

A key indicator that your brake pads are wearing thin is that you will be able to hear screeching noises as the metal moves against each other. This is a sign you will need to replace your brake pads. Go to your local garage and have them looked at to avoid more expensive problems occurring.

Warning Lights

If the brake light appears on your dashboard it could mean that you either are due a brake inspection or there could be a problem with your brakes. Either way, you should make sure that you get your brakes checked out.

Pressure to Brake Pedal

If you need to apply more pressure to your brakes to make your vehicle come to a stop, this is one of the early stages of excessive brake pad wear.

Car Pulls to One Side

When your car pulls to one side when braking, it could indicate a brake issue. Brakes aren’t the only cause of car pulling issues; problems with other components of the vehicle such as suspension can also cause your vehicle to pull to one side.

To maintain your car’s brakes, get your vehicle serviced regularly so your technician can advise you on the condition of your brakes and when various parts will need to be replaced.
