Sticking Brake Pedal – The master cylinder may be faulty if the pedal fails to release. This condition can cause serious damage, if left too long, requires expensive repairs. This can even lead to total brake failure.
Noisy Brakes – It indicates the possibility of worn brake pads or linings. Have it checked immediately if the vehicle is displaying this warning sign.
Car Veers on Braking – On applying brakes if the car veers or pulls to one side. It may be as simple as adjusting your tyre pressure or the problem may be with your braking system, particularly the calipers.
Locking Brakes – On applying only light pressure the brakes grab or lock. Grease or oil on the brake linings can be the most probable cause of this behaviour. The brakes could also fail in an emergency due to lose or broken components.
Vibration (Steering wheel or vehicle) – A vibration in the pedal, steering or entire vehicle on applying the brakes can indicate problems with the brake drum or rotor, a faulty steering mechanism, or other loose components. All these conditions affect the handling of your vehicle.
Pulsating Brake pedal – A brake pedal pulsating under foot on applying pressure can be most likely due to the misalignment of the brake disc or drums which can be very dangerous in wet conditions. This can also lead to increased wear on the braking system and uneven tyre wear.
Warning Light – Brakes could be near to total failure if the warning lights on the brakes comes on. Check your car immediately, if it is displaying this warning sign.
Hard Pedal: Check your brakes immediately, if you require extreme foot pressure to depress the brake pedal. The underlying cause could be the power brakes, or possibly restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings. All these problems demand immediate attention to ensure that the brakes continue to function effectively and safely.
Low Pedal – The brakes activate only when the brake pedal is almost completely touching the floor. You need a quick check-up to identify the problem. The brakes should respond quickly in an emergency, so look into this problem soon and never ignore.
Spongy Brake Pedal – There could be moisture in the brake fluid if your brake pedal feels spongy after heavy use. Clean brake fluid is critical to the performance of your brakes. Moisture in the system reduces braking efficiency and can corrode brake components, potentially resulting in total brake failure.
