If you keep your vehicle long enough, it will start to need various forms of maintenance and repair, including a brake replacement. However, if regular maintenance has been kept up-to-date, or brake repair was performed as soon as a problem was noticed, such as warped rotors, a brake repair is typically a minor job, and thus not too costly. If problems are ignored however, a brake replacement can be rather expensive because of other damage that could take place in other components of your vehicle.

3 Important Signs of Failing Brake Pads & Rotors in your Vehicle!

Brake rotors are the most common component of the braking system to fail, leading to accidents. Rotors have a highly machined surface where the brake pads make contact. The rotors will eventually wear out, usually in the form of ridges and groves where the pads rub against them. Brake rotors, together with the pads, are necessary to complete the braking process of your vehicle.

Here are 3 Ways to Determine If You Need to Replace your Brake Pads & Rotors:

  • Stress Cracks – These are small cracks that can be found on the surface of warped rotors and occur when there is excessive heat and the usual wear and tear. The more visible the cracks, the thinner the rotors. Brake rotors with multiple stress cracks will not be able to dissipate the heat generated by the brake fluid under pressure and will compromise the integrity of your vehicle's braking system.
  • Brake Pedal Pulsation -- Once your pedal pulsates and you can feel it pushing back when you apply the brakes, means that your brake rotor is about to fail. Pedal pulsation is the result of the pressure surge in the brake's hydraulic system caused by a warped rotor.
  • Vibrations in the Steering Wheel -- The vibration caused by a warped rotor is transferred into the steering linkage up to the steering wheel. When you feel vibrations in the steering wheel every time you apply the brakes, check the rotors.

Tips to Remember: Ask your brake repair specialist for professional advice as to whether the rotors can be resurfaced, or whether they should be completely replaced. Safe traveling!
