Previously we have outlined some of the sounds and feelings you may notice when it is time for brake repair in Addison, TX. Many of the signs are something you can feel or hear. The next few ways you can tell it’s time for brake repair fall in these categories as well.

Grinding

You know that loud metallic sound that you have been noticing? Yeah, that is a telltale sign that your brakes are bad. The grinding or even growling sound that you are hearing is caused by two metal parts, the disc and caliper, rubbing together. Now you may be thinking, “Well, what’s the big deal?” Okay, if you want to continue driving your car with that awful noise, you can, but this will lead to scratching your rotors and run up your bill in replacements and repairs.

Pulling

You’re driving along, you press the brakes and you notice your car pull to one side. This is usually caused by uneven wearing of brake linings. However, it could also mean that there is some sort of buildup in your brake fluid.
