Brake Adjustments In Etobicoke, ON

The brakes serve the most important role in driving - keeping you safe. Your vehicle's braking system is made of different parts that are hard at work. Just as the brakes take care of you, you need to show them care and attention every once in a while so that they can keep functioning optimally.

What It Is and Why It's Important

Part of regular vehicle maintenance is brake adjustment. Brake adjustment is a simple process yet has a significant impact on the wellness of your vehicle. By keeping your brakes in tip-top shape, you can improve the stopping distance of your car as well as the efficiency and control of the brakes.

Not only is your safety and the vehicle safety concerning when it comes to improperly cared for brakes, but the entire car suffers. When you go for a vehicle service, you should ask to get your brakes inspected and possibly adjusted. This will save you the cost of having to maintain, repair, or even replace your brakes in the future. Brakes in optimum shape also make driving more enjoyable and improve fuel economy.

When To Get a Brake Adjustment

Experts across Canada recommend that brake pads get inspected every 20,000 km or every 12 months. There are also some warning signs that it's time to get a brake check.

Visual Warning Signs

You can occasionally inspect your brakes yourself. Here's how to tell if you need to go for a service. If your brake pad is less than ΒΌ inch thick or about 3-millimetres thick, it's time to visit our Service Centre.

Audible Warning Signs

If your brakes squeal or screech when you brake, this could be a normal part of the process of brakes wearing away over time and is an indicator that your brakes need service. This sound could also temporarily happen in wet conditions. However, a deep, metallic grinding or growling sound is cause for immediate concern. It might indicate that your brake discs and callipers are grinding together, which causes major damage to your braking system.
