Soft Pedal Brakes
If you feel that your brake pedal is getting so easy to push, even with very little pressure applied to it; then it may be because of the following issues:
- Air presence in the brake system
- Damaged master, calliper, wheel cylinder, residual valve or wheel bearing
- Presence of fluid leak in the system
Let an expert mechanic in Toowoomba check this for you. Call us on (07) 4638 3533.
Hard Pedal Brakes
If it takes you more pressure to pedal travel or brake force, then the following parts of your vehicle have to be inspected and checked:
- Vacuum hose
- Check valve
- Brake pads
Our team of mechanics in Toowoomba can help check these parts for you. Visit us, today.
If after pressing on the brake, your pedal feels like it slowly sinks to the floor then you need to check on your master cylinder. Otherwise, go ahead and check if there are any leaks somewhere in the system.
If your brake fails to completely disengage one way or another then one or more of the following issues may be causing the trouble:
- Seized calliper, pads, or parking cable
- Rusted drum or disc
- Clogged master cylinder return hole
- Collapsed or pinched brake line
Don’t let these inconveniences cause any trouble to your driving pleasure. Let us check your brakes. Bring your car to our shop for inspection and repair.
Squeaking, howling and squealing noises
When you hear these with your engine, then it is a signal that the remaining pad left on your brakes is already less than 25%. Otherwise, this may be due to a glaze build-up on your pads.
Other contributory factors that may lead to this condition include:
- Friction materials
- Manufacturing tolerance
- Random wear factors
