Whether you are using a SEAT, Audi or Skoda car, brakes are a very vital part of the vehicle. Car owners should always stay aware of the warning signs indicating that the brakes need servicing. Instead of waiting for the lights on the dashboard to appear, take your car to an experienced car specialist if you notice any of the signs stated below.

4 Common Signs Indicating That Your Car Brakes Need Servicing

  • Unusual Sound

Though brakes start emitting strange noises the moment they become faulty, car owners often fail to notice them amidst loud noises. The issue complicates with the passage of time and the brakes start generating high-pitched sequel sounds. You might hear a harsh grinding sound every time you are applying the brakes if the brake pad has worn out completely. It will damage the rotors and you will have difficulties stopping the car.

  • Vibration

If you are trying to stop your SEAT car under general circumstances and notice that the brake pedal is vibrating, take your car to SEAT specialists in Wimbledon. It is an indication sign of warped rotors. Its surface strikes against the pads as it is uneven and the brake pedal vibrates. A common reason why rotors warp is when you put them under excess stress for a long period of time. The shape of the rotor changes because of the heat the car generates when you stop them frequently or drive down steep roads.

  • Pulling

If your Audi is randomly turning left or right while you are applying brakes or driving instead of following your commands, take your car to Audi specialists in Wimbledon. They will check the car’s brake system and let you know the reason behind it. This generally happens when a clipper is stuck inside the system. The car might also start making left or right turns if the brake hose has collapsed or the brake pads have become uneven. The callipers start moving unevenly every time you apply the brakes.

  • Worn Pads

The brake pads wear out with the passage of time and so it can’t stop or slow down your vehicle efficiently. This is why you should always get worn pads replaced by professionals offering Skoda servicing in Wimbledon without any delay. They will check the brake pads’ width and let you know whether they are in a good working condition. The spokes of the wheels are inspected minutely to check whether the shiny metal rotor inside it can be spotted. The pads are replaced if their thickness is less than a quarter an inch.

Since you are now aware of the common signs indicating that your car brakes need servicing, approach the right car specialist before it’s too late.
