Brakes Repair

How Your Brakes Work

Your brakes are actually a system of several components that work together to help reduce the speed of your vehicle or to stop it completely in an emergency situation. They’re your first and most important safety feature. Each component plays an important part in slowing your vehicle down.

When you press on the brake pedal, it forces the brake fluid through the lines into the piston, which is driven into the master cylinder. This then forces the calipers and brake pads against the rotors, which causes your wheel to slow its spin.

Signs that You Need Brake Repair

Considering that there are numerous components to your braking system, there are several indications that there’s an issue occurring with them. You’ll want to keep your eyes and ears out for these signs that it’s time to schedule brake repair in Huntington Beach:

  • Spongy brake pedal
  • Brake dashboard indicator light
  • Car pulls to one side when braking
  • The vehicle takes longer to slow down while pressing the brake pedal
  • Squealing or grinding noises while braking
  • Excessive vibration when you press the brakes

Brake Inspection

How Long Do My Brakes Last?

Each component of your braking system varies in its lifespan. Your brake pads are usually the first to go because they’re built to wear down. They even include a metal tab that emits a squealing noise to let you know that it’s nearing the end. If you execute normal braking, you could see your pads and rotors lasting up to 70,000 miles.

Brake calipers are different because they’re more of a permanent fixture, lasting up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, but if there’s early wear, you’ll want to have them replaced as soon as possible. By braking responsibly, and not excessively, you can ensure that your braking components last to their full expectancy.

However, you’re also aware of the signs that indicate that there’s something wrong and that you’ll need service and brake repair.
