In order to stay safe on the road, you need to make sure that your brakes are in order. While they’re checked at your service, it’s paramount you keep an eye on them to ensure they’re working correctly.
If you’re not sure what to look for, here are some signs somethings not quite working as it should:
1. Your brake pedal feels hard or spongy
2. You’re having problems with braking/stopping
3. Your handbrake isn’t working as well as it should be
4. You have a warning light
5. Grinding sounds when you brake
As each wheel has a brake disk that’s surrounded by a brake pad on either side, pressing the brake pedal can cause these to wear as it’s the friction between the two which actually stops the car.
