Your car's brake system should be at its functioning best at all times, for it ensures safety on the road for you, your passengers and other motorists. Through the process of changing kinetic energy to thermal energy, the brake system's meticulously designed parts and the exact movements you do enable the car to stop. When you step on the brake pedal, the mass cylinder exerts pressure on the hydraulic brake lines that lead to each of the vehicle's wheels, whereupon the brake pads or shoes in turn exert pressure on a disc or drum to create the needed friction that will slow down the car to a full stop. Friction and heat eventually causes the wearing down of the different parts of the brake system, such as the brake shoes, brake pads, calipers, brake rotors, among others.
Benefits of Brake Repair
There are warning signs that let you know it is soon time for new brakes. Being alert to these telltale signs of problematic brakes can save you from future costly repairs. Brakes squealing or grinding while in use is a sign of worn brake pads, and it calls for a replacement. Your car pulling to the side as you brake signifies worn brakes, broken caliper, or low level of brake fluid in the brake lines. Spongy brakes, or brake pedal that presses down too easily indicates too much air in the hydraulic lines. A service indicator light on your dashboard is also a warning sign that something is wrong with your vehicle. Refer to the car's manual to know what exactly the problem is.
