Timely Brake Inspection Services
The braking system is your vehicle’s most important safety feature. No matter how strong the engine is, you’re going nowhere fast without quality brakes. Brake pads are a normal wear-and-tear component so drivers should always be on the lookout for replacement needs. The braking system is designed to give you early warning signs when the brake pads have worn too low. The brake repair specialists at The Auto Doc in Houston, TX can handle any and all of your brake repair needs. If you delay your brake inspection or brake service appointment you run the risk of doing expensive or irreparable damages. The earliest warning signs of trouble are audible. If you’re hearing a high-pitched squeal when you apply your brakes, it’s definitely time to visit our shop. It may be difficult to hear the noisy brakes if the windows are rolled up or the radio is too loud. It’s a good idea to occasionally drive with the windows down so you hear the true condition of your brakes.
Brake Pad & Brake Rotor Replacements
If you don’t give your brakes the attention they need, the high-pitched squeal will turn into a scraping sound., like sandpaper. The brake pads are the buffer preventing the metal-on-metal grinding between the rotors and the calipers. Avoid extensive damages to your vehicle’s braking system by acting fast. Many owners delay their brake services and end up need new brake rotors. They could have saved precious time and money by addressing the brake repair needs as soon as possible. There are other warning signs that drivers should be aware of. The brake pedal itself can tell you a lot about the condition of your brakes. Pay attention to how the brake pedal responds to your foot, and as a result, how your vehicle responds. A hard brake pedal could mean a brake booster has failed or a problem with the brake fluid. If the brake pedal is “soft” or going all the way to the floor could also be a sign of a brake fluid issue or a damaged master cylinder..
