5 Signs of Brake Wear

  • If it pulsates when applying pressure you could have a distorted brake disc or drum.
  • If your vehicle pulls to one side when breaking, this usually means a sticking or seized mechanical or hydraulic component, normally the brake caliper.
  • If you can hear a grinding noise when applying the brakes your pads could be excessively worn and need to be replaced along with potentially damaged discs.
  • If your pedal feels spongy there could be air in the hydraulic system due to a brake fluid leak.
  • If your brake warning light is on or your handbrake is pulling up higher than it should (more than 6 to 8 clicks in modern cars).
