Have you just rolled up to a stop sign, apply the brakes and hear a funny metallic sound that you do not remember having heard before? Or maybe you hear a squeaky sound, but have ignored it for a few weeks now? Hope this is not the case as this could be a serious problem with your brakes. The longer you go with a funny noise from the brakes area, the potential for a more expensive solution exists. The brakes can only be new skates, but the longer the problem, the more they need new rotors, calipers or whatever.
The brakes are checked regularly
The brakes are often checked, when you have a routine check or if you turn the tires. Having the brake pads checked when the tires are out of the vehicle is more accurate than when they are on the tires. The brake pads are measured to see what's left over, and then you are given a percentage of the remaining brake pad.
Once the brake pads go down to the 25% range, you should consider replacing them. Once the electrodes have worn out below 50%, they can wear faster. What could be 25% a week can be reduced to 15% in just a few weeks. It is best to replace the brakes as soon as possible, as you can rest assured that you do not damage other parts of the brakes.
To repair the brakes, the car is simply put on an elevator. removed, then the brakes looked. Depending on the number of parts to be replaced, this will determine the duration of the process. When only the brake pads need to be repaired, it will only take about an hour. When you need brake pads, new rotors and even calipers, it may take half a day to complete the job.
Brake repair can be expensive, but it's not something you can do without a car. When the brakes do not work properly, the car does not stop properly. A car that can not stop when it is expected will have accidents or will be scary to take on the road. As soon as you suspect a brake problem, have it checked by an ASE technician so you can correct the problem if it exists.
