Having a perfectly functional braking system is not only essential for optimum performance but also for your safety as well. By regularly checking your brakes you avoid unnecessary circumstances that will not arise by simply doing a routine checkup and following these steps;
- Timely check your brake pads for wear and tear, If your brake pads are anywhere less than a quarter inch you should look for a replacement
- When you hear the squealing noise while breaking, that is also because your brake pads are worn out and now the metal pieces are rubbing against the brake rotors.
- If you notice that your vehicle is pulling to one side, this can be an alignment issue but also keep in mind that when your brake calipers are not fully released they result in generating more force on that wheel hence pulling your vehicle to one side.
- One more thing that should not be ignored is if there is a sighting of any liquid which is yellow in color, usually brake system leaks release a yellow colored liquid and this can lead to a complete loss of your braking system.
