Brakes play a significant role in providing adequate frictional force to stop a vehicle. If it is not for the brakes, roads would become a place for even more accidents and dangerous situations.

Further, we would like you to know that we provide the brake repair Birmingham drivers have been searching for. The safety of our customers always has top priority. Therefore, we make sure that you leave our garage safer than ever.

When we talk about brakes, it is easy to observe the symptoms of their failure.

Some of these signs are mentioned below:

Spongy pedal

In order to maintain the adequate pressure the brake linings, hydraulics are used. The force developed because of these hydraulics helps the brakes to function efficiently. It is often seen that the braking system can develop leaks. In the absence of necessary pressure, the brake pedal can stick to the floor. This is what we call a spongy pedal. If you are in the same fix, do not drive your vehicle and call us straight away.

Brake Vibration

Brakes of a car have two main components, namely brake pads and discs. When brake pads are pushed onto brake discs, the car stops. If the brake disc has some deformation or is warped, the brake pad will sit non-uniformly on it. The end result of such an uncoordinated motion is shaking of the vehicle. Please bring your vehicle to us if it is vibrating on the application of brakes.

Squeals and noises

As mentioned above, brake pads pressurise against the brake disc to produce the required frictional force. These brake pads are lined with frictional material. This material deteriorates over time and after long usage. As a consequence, the brakes start to squeal.

Warning lights

With the assistance of modern computers installed in today's cars, intricate faults in the components can be easily identified. One of these lights is dedicated to the brakes of a car. In case anything goes wrong with the brakes, an error code will be generated by the computers. This is displayed by the brake warning light on the dashboard. If this light is on in your vehicle too, don’t wait and get an expert’s assistance immediately.
