Symptoms of Falty Brakes

Spongy Brake Pedal

The brake pedal feels spongy, this could indicate moisture in the brake fluid. 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.

Hard Pedal

Extreme foot pressure is required to depress your brake pedal, get your brakes checked immediately.  The underlying cause could be with the power brakes, or possibly restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings. All of these problems demand immediate attention to ensure that your brakes continue to function effectively.

Low Pedal

Brakes do not activate until the brake pedal is almost touching the floor. A quick check-up will soon identify the problem. You need your brakes to respond quickly in an emergency, so do not ignore this problem.

Pulsating Brake pedal

The brake pedal pulsates under the foot when pressure is applied. Most likely, the brake disc/drums are out of true alignment. This can be dangerous in wet conditions, can lead to increased wear in the braking system and uneven tire wear

Locking Brakes

Brakes locking or grabbing with only light pressure. The most probable cause is grease or oil on your brake linings. There may also be loose or broken components that could cause your brakes to fail in an emergency.

Noisy Brakes

Noisy brakes indicate the possibility of worn brake pads or linings. If your car is displaying this warning sign, get it to check as soon as possible.

Sticking Brake Pedal

The pedal fails to release, this may indicate a faulty master cylinder. This condition can causes serious damage, requiring expensive brake repairs. This can lead to total brake failure.

Vibration in the Steering wheel

There is a vibration in the pedal, steering, or entire vehicle when you apply the brakes. This can indicate problems with the brake drum or rotor, a faulty steering mechanism, or other loose components. These conditions all affect the handling of your vehicle.
