Factors responsible for a faulty braking system
A number of factors can damage the braking system components, thereby reducing the overall braking efficiency. These include:
- Frequent braking
- Driving on uneven surfaces
- Drop in the level of brake fluid
- Overheating of the brake pads due to constant use
- Faulty disc rotors
- Overloading the vehicle beyond the recommended limit, etc.
Components of car brakes
The braking system of your vehicle consists of various components that need to work together. Professionals at our facility inspect these components carefully to detect any underlying issue.
- Brake pedal
- Master cylinder
- Lines and hoses
- Brake pads
- Brake discs
- Brake drums
- Brake shoes
- ABS control module (only for those cars fitted with ABS brakes)
Indications of a malfunctioning brake
Look out for the following warning signals to determine if your vehicle’s braking system is malfunctioning:
Metallic squealing noise
If you hear a sharp squealing noise that stops as soon you apply the brakes, chances are the brake pads have worn out. This sound is generated when the brake pads start to get in contact with the rotors.
Strange grinding noises
Do you hear an unusual grinding sound when you apply the brakes? This could indicate worn-out braking components or a lack of lubricants in the drum brakes.
Spongy brake pedal
If the brake pedal goes all the way down to the floor mat when you step on it, there is an issue with the master cylinder. In such a situation, it is crucial to get the brakes inspected by experts.
Car drifts to one side as you brake
A damaged brake hose or faulty calliper will cause the vehicle to drift to one side when you apply the brakes. This happens when one of the brake callipers exerts more pressure during braking, thereby leading to unbalanced stopping.
