Few vehicle components can have a bigger impact on your safety than your brakes and they should be inspected every 24,000 km or 12 months for this reason alone. Not only will this ensure that brakes are there when you need them, but it will help spot worn components before they lead to more costly repairs.
If your brakes are dragging, squealing, grinding, pull your vehicle from one side or the other or seem low – come in for a brake service right away!
Inspect brake system, including brake linings, parking brakes, rotors and drums every year or 24,000 km
Do your brakes needs servicing?
- Noises – squealing can indicate brake pads that have worn down to the indicators and grinding sound can mean pads have worn down to their backings which arecoming in contact with the rotors.
- Warning lights – “Brake”, “ABS” or “ANTILOCK” warning loghts will briefly turn on when you first start your vehicle. If they stay or or continue to flash, there may be a fault in the anti-lock braking system.
- Pedal senstations – a pulsing pedal can indicate rotos that are out of round while a low pedal can indicate the need to adjust your rear brakes.
- Performance – “spongy” brakes can indicate air is entering the brake system. A vehicle that pulls to the side may indicate brakes are not balanced or there may be a caliper problem.
- Low brake fluids – dropping levels of brake fluid can indicate wearing disc brakes. The fluid fills the space left by the caliper pistons as they are required to move outward. Frequent top-ups can be a sign of a leak in the hydraulic system that should be addressed by a qualified technician. Only use the type of fluid recommended in your owner’s manual (ie: DOT 3 or DOT 4)
