How Can I Tell If My Brakes Need Repair or Replacing?
Your vehicle will behave differently when its brakes start to fail. If it starts to handle poorly – by drifting left or right – the calliper could be stuck. This means pressure is being applied to one wheel, but not the remainder. A problem with the braking system is likely here, in which case the vehicle needs to be taken as a matter of urgency to a local auto repair shop.
Your vehicle could display a range of other symptoms that might indicate brake damage. If the brake pads are uneven then – as with the above scenario – each wheel will be subjected to different amounts of pressure. Your car will then start to drift left or right without you instructing it to, which will put you and the occupants of your vehicle at risk of harm.
Whether you’re driving locally in Eastleigh – or moving at speed along a busy motorway – you’ll want to know your vehicle’s brakes are in good working order. Brake pedals that vibrate under duress normally indicate a serious problem. Our experienced team of car mechanics will be able to identify the reason this is happening and rectify the problem.
Problems with the brake pedal of your vehicle can be communicated in other ways. If the pedal feels spongy and unresponsive, this could indicate a fundamental problem with the pads – or, possibly, the hydraulic system. Equally, if your brakes become over-responsive, the rotor could be worn, or the fluid might have become contaminated and require changing.
Unless you’re a mechanic, diagnosing a problem with your vehicle’s brakes will be difficult. Eastleigh Autoworks’ team of experts can run a set of diagnostics on your vehicle to ascertain the nature of the issue and its severity. This information will help them make an informed decision about the next best step to take and make your vehicle safe to use again.
