Signs of Common Brake Problems

Brakes wear down differently depending on the car and driver. Generally, brakes need servicing every 20,000 to 50,000 miles. If you notice any of these problems, come by our shop today and we will make sure your brakes are working properly.

Grinding – A loud grinding noise when you brake usually means that you have completely worn down your brake pads. The sound comes from the metal caliper rubbing against the metal disc. When this happens, your will usually need to repair the rotors.

Reduced Responsiveness – If you notice your brakes not working like they used to, you may have a leak. Air and brake fluid leaks can crop up in your brake lines and should be repaired as soon as possible.

Vibration – When you brake normally, does your vehicle vibrate or shudder? This could indicate that your rotors are warped, which can cause uneven wear on your brake pads.

Worn Brake Pads

You should visually inspect your brake pads (seen through the spokes of your wheel) every time you get your tires rotated or your oil changed. If you have less than a quarter-inch of brake pad, you should schedule an appointment with a mechanic.

With over 50 years in the auto repair business, our mechanics can skillfully assess the problem with your brakes. If you need brake repair in Haverhill, MA, call Ray’s Auto Service at 978-372-9611.
