Warning Signs of Brake Troubles

There are many signs that your brakes require immediate attention. Pay close attention while driving. If you hear, feel or notice any of the issues below, schedule your appointment at C.R. Smith Radiator & Auto Repair right away! We also recommend having your brake system inspected every other time you have your oil changed.
  • Grinding When Braking: If you notice a loud grinding noise when braking, this is an indicator that your brake pads have worn completely through. The sound you are hearing is the metal brake discs rubbing against the caliper. This means you need new brake pads and you may need to replace your rotors as well
  • Loud, High Pitched Squealing: This sound is your primary warning sign that something is amiss. This might indicate your brake pads are running low and they need to be replaced. A small metal indicator produces this audible warning to alert you that service is necessary
  • Spongy or Soft Brakes: When your brakes are spongy it takes more effort to brake. This is often caused by low brake fluid, air or a leak in brake line
  • Vehicle Pulling to the Side When Braking: If your car pulls to one side or the other when braking, this is a sign of uneven or irregular wear. It could also indicate that your brake calipers are not releasing properly
