Signs of Brake System Issues

Most brake pads have a metal tab on the backing plate. When the pad material wears below the tab’s height, the tab rubs the rotors and causes a squealing sound. If you let the brake pads get lower, the backing plate will grind the rotors. 

Moreover, if the brake pads get too low, the risk of overextending the calipers is much higher. If this happens, you must replace the caliper. These issues could cause a brake line to collapse. This is less common than the overextended caliper if the hoses are in good condition.

Other signs of brake issues include:

  • The brake pedal goes more than halfway to the floor when you firmly step on it.
  • The emergency brake handle pulls up more than halfway.
  • The brake pedal feels spongy or mushy.
  • The vehicle pulls to the left or right when you press the brake pedal, especially when you must stop quickly.
  • You feel pulsating or shimmering when you step on the brake pedal.

If you notice any of these symptoms, contact Kanuga Tire & Auto in Hendersonville, NC as soon as possible for an appointment.
