When to do Brake Servicing?
Brakes are the single most important safety feature in our cars. You should appreciate this all the more when you are driving down the highway at 60 mph and have to stop suddenly. Needless to say, you should always keep in mind that it is important to service your brakes regularly. After all, the idea of braking has yet to change since the inception of modern automobiles a few decades ago. Simply put, it works on the idea of friction stopping the car, and thus, gets worn out with time.
Who Needs It?
The more you use brakes, the more frequently you should get brake servicing. At Splendour Auto Care, we have found that people living in the cities tend to overuse their brakes far more than those living in the rural regions. The reason is simple. If you are in the city, you are in constant need of the brakes due to traffic signals and frequent stops. So, brake service does not depend on the distance you have driven but rather, the condition of the road in which you have done so.
Brakes are a sensitive thing. As such, many car manufacturers now equip their cars with brake sensors. These are simple things which let you know when the condition of the brakes have deteriorated to the point that they need to be replaced. However, not all cars have brake sensors equipped in them, so for the ones who are less fortunate, we have to make do with more mundane signs. These include:
· Screeching sound from the brakes
· Vibrating car every time you use the brakes
· Grinding of the car
· Longer stopping distances
· Harder pressing action needed
These things can happen from a lot of things. It can involve the fairly simple brake fluid leak problem to the more serious brake shoe fully worn out.
While you can service a brake on your own, we at Splendour Auto Care Center have found that most problems dealing with brakes are usually made much worse by the time the car is brought to us when amateurs have worked on it. A professional job is much more stressed upon due to the highly sensitive role a brake plays in a vehicle. From disc needing to be changed to new rotors being fitted, a disc servicing can have a lot of different aspects.
