Brake Repair-Common Brake Problems

A brake repair is something that should be placed high on your priority list. It can mean the difference between being safe in your car or not being safe. Here we look at two common problems that often occur to brakes- wear on the brake pads and warped rotors.

If your brakes are in need of some work then do not neglect them. Brakes are an essential element of the safety of your motor vehicle. In fact they are the most important part of keeping yourself safe on the road as well as your passengers. For that reason brake repair is a very integral aspect of maintenance for any motor vehicle.

There are certain problems that are common when it comes to brakes. The first is wear on the brake pads and the second is warped rotors. Let us look at these two much needed brake repairs.

The braking system takes a lot of beating on a regular basis. The more often a car is driven the worse it is. In particular the brake pads end up the worse for wear. For this very reason it is a smart idea to have the pads on your brakes checked out at least once every six months. In this way you are performing preventative maintenance on them and are being proactive. This is better than waiting until the pads are worn down and are starting to cause problems for you.

The symptoms to look for that signal a brake repair is needed for the brake pads include grinding sounds, squeaking and increased stopping distance. Most brake pads are fitted with a thin metal tab that lets you know when the brake pads need attention. It will do this by vibrating against the rotor once the pads have reached a point where they are very dangerous.

Not all brake pads are made this way however which means that having them inspected at least twice a year is strongly recommended. If the brake pads wear down enough in time they can do damage to the rotors. This brake repair will be even more expensive than if you had just needed to replace the brake pads!

Warped rotors is a problem more commonly seem in modern cars but this issue can crop up on all braking systems that feature disc brakes. Rotors can warp if the wheel is tightened too much or if they become overheated.

You will know that you have a warped rotor when you are driving because when you apply the brake you will feel a pulsing sensation. Not only can this pulsing sensation be frustrating to have to contend with but it can also be a red light for danger. A tremendous number of newer motor vehicles are made with rotors that are paper thin and are susceptible to warping very quickly.

Another thing that can make this problem worse is that many automobile manufacturers do not leave enough material in place to allow for the rotors to be resurfaced. This brake repair must be done by a qualified technician. When a rotor is resurfaced the flatness of the rotor is improved upon and the pulsing feeling in the brake pedal then goes away. The safety of the brake is then restored to what it should be. If your car needs work done on the brakes then get it done right away. Delaying a repair could be very dangerous!
