Common Brake Problems

While often we focus on what makes our cars go, what makes them stop is perhaps the most essential mechanics in your vehicle. Brake failures are a risk to be taken very seriously and it’s always worth ensuring you have a professional check them regularly to ensure they’re maintained correctly.

Wear and Tear

Most brake problems will be the result of wear and tear. With brake pads, callipers and rotors being just some of what makes up your braking system, there are a lot of parts to get worn down. Warping of the rotor can cause brakes to skip or grind. Brake pads being worn down from repeated use can give your car slower braking speeds. Worn brake pads can also result in a squealing sound when you brake, so keep an ear out for any unusual sounds your car might be making.

If your brake callipers are experiencing some wear they may be applying different levels of pressure to the wheels as the brakes are applied. This can cause your car to drift or your steering wheel to pull in an unexpected direction. The best solution to wear and tear isn’t to wait till you notice these symptoms but instead ensure you have your brakes checked and serviced regularly.

Detritus and Debris

Being so close to the road means that a variety of debris and detritus can get caught in your brake systems. Stones, tree fragments, metals or fabrics can cause your systems to catch and fail. While clearing out detritus is relatively straightforward if it can be identified, unnoticed debris can put strain on your systems and cause a more dramatic mechanical break.

You can check for items stuck in your brake systems at home but during services your mechanic will ensure there is nothing hiding in your brakes that could cause you problems down the line.

Fluid Leaks

Whether used for lubrication, hydraulic systems or to maintain pressure within the systems internally, your brake fluids are working hard to maintain the integrity of your car’s brakes. If you’re noticing leaking fluid under your car it is worth ensuring that it is not coming from your brakes as one of your first points of call.

A softer brake pedal, meaning less pressure when pressed, is also a good indication of a potential brake fluids issue in your car. A lot of skipping, soft or unresponsive issues with your brakes can often be wrapped up quickly by replacing the brake fluid and patching any leaks.

What to expect from a service on your brakes.

In the event of a total brake failure your brake pedal would likely become unresponsive, supplying no response by your car when pressed down. A brakes service first objective is to ensure that doesn’t happen. So you can expect your chosen professional to give the system a full once over. Identify common problems as well as heading off issues at the pass. If your brake pads are already showing signs of wear and tear your chosen professional will be able to identify potential avenues forward to ensure no issues in the future. These solutions can take multiple forms, such as replacing the lubricant to ensure smoother operation, clearing out of debris or in rare cases total brake replacement.

Help your mechanic by being familiar with the expected lifespan of your cars braking system as well as keeping in mind how you use your vehicle. If you’re regularly bushbashing through the Australian landscape and as such slamming on your brakes regularly, then your service may need to look different to a car that is used less adventurously. Keep your mechanic informed on how you use your car to let them give you the best possible service.
