A good way to see if your vehicle’s brakes need to be replaced is to look at the pads. If there is an 1/8 of inch or less remaining on your brake pad, it is time for a replacement.
How Brakes Work
Vehicles have hydraulic brakes that use brake fluid to transfer force from your foot pressing on the brake pedal to the brake pads pressing against the tires of your car. When you push on the brake pedal, the pedal pushes against the brake fluid which expands through the brake system, causing a piston to push the brake pad against the brake disc on the tire. This friction causes the wheels to stop turning and the car to stop.
This method is effective in causing the car to stop, but also causes wear and tear on your brake system. For this reason, it is important to have your brakes inspected regularly so you can find and fix any problems. If there is a leak in the brake fluid line, there will not be enough pressure to cause the brakes to stop. If the brake pads are worn down too much, they will not be able to press on the brake discs hard enough to stop the wheels.
Because brakes are essential for the safety of you and your car, it is important to keep them well-maintained. That’s where Master Muffler can help. Whether your brakes are worn and squealing or you just need them tuned up, bring your car in and let Master Muffler get your brakes working properly.
