When you are preparing your car for the treacherous winter weather, having your brakes checked is absolutely imperative. However, knowing when your brakes require maintenance can be difficult.
In this video, you will learn about noises that your brakes should not be making. The first noise you should listen to is a high-pitched squeal that goes away when you apply the brakes. This sound is a sign that your brake rotors will need to be repaired soon. The second noise is a grinding noise, which means that the pads have worn all the way through. The third noise you will often hear is just squeaking. This noise generally indicates that the brakes were poorly installed.
Make sure to have your brakes checked and maintained before winter hits. Doing so will help you stay safer on the road. To learn more about brake maintenance, call Murray’s Auto Clinics at 301-585-7557.
