Give Your Brakes a Break: Give Your Brakes a Break Arguably the most important safety feature of any vehicle is the brakes. Heck they saved your life twice this week alone! So why not look out for them like they have been looking out for you all these years. How Brakes Work: How Brakes Work Most modern cars have disk brakes. When you press the brake pedal it prompts a set of heat resistant pads to grab on to the spinning rotor. The friction created slows down the rotor until it stops spinning and ends up bringing your car to a full stop. How Brakes Work: How Brakes Work Pressing the brake pads against the spinning rotor over and over again will eventually wear the pads down. Luckily, your vehicle provides several warning signs before your brakes reach the point of potential failure or extensive repair. The Wear Indicator: The Wear Indicator is a small piece of metal attached to the brake pads. When pads wear down enough, the wear indicator actually makes contact with the metal rotor, making a squealing sound. This is the most obvious indication that your brakes need maintenance. Other Signs of Outdated Brakes: Other Signs of Outdated Brakes Brake warning light on Brake fluid low or dirty Grinding or squealing sound when you apply the brake pedal Pulsation or sponginess when brake pedal is depressed Veering or pulling to one side when braking Further Damage: Further Damage Worn brake pads are a huge safety concern since your car isn’t able to slow down and stop nearly as easily But wearing down the pads all the way presents an even bigger problem, as the metal on metal causes damage to the actual rotor PowerPoint Presentation: Stay on top of the condition of your brakes to save you from much more expensive repairs down the line which will undoubtedly arise if you neglect to maintain them. And even more importantly so you don’t find yourself driving with unresponsive brakes, resulting in a collision that could cost you your life!
