In order to be completely safe when we are driving our cars, we need brake pads that are in good condition. Because our car brakes ensure we come to a complete stop or not run into anything, it is important to know when your brake pads are wearing out. Knowing when you need new brake pads can prevent costly repairs and other damages to your car. Below are four signs your car’s brake pads are wearing out.
Vibrating Brake Pedal
Usually, when you push down on the brake it will take little effort to stop the car. If you press down on the brake and it begins to vibrate, you may have a problem. This can be caused by brake pads becoming too hot and becoming deformed.
Clicking Noises Coming From Brakes
When we press our foot against the brake to stop, there should be no sound coming from the brake. One of the common signs that your brake pads are wearing out is when you hear a clicking noise. This can be due to loose brake pads.
Your Car Pulls To One Side
Without touching your steering wheel, when you brake, your car shouldn’t be pulling to the left or the right. Not all of your brake pads will go out at the same time, so when it pulls to one side, it can be an indication that one brake pad is worn out.
