It is important to keep your vehicle in the best condition possible. When driving, you may notice sounds or noises with your brakes as you apply the brake pedal. In some instances, you may also feel vibrations or grabbing type motions with the brakes. It is important to go to regular scheduled maintenances for your vehicle, so parts can be looked over for any wear or damage that might have occurred.
If you hear a high-pitched squealing noise may be a sign of brake issues. The sound typically comes from a small piece of metal that is called an indicator. The indicator makes the brake rotor create a squealing noise. If you hear the sound on a regular basis, make sure to bring your vehicle in as soon as possible to be inspected. This way you can help your brakes to be in the best condition they can be in when you drive.
If you notice the vehicle pulling to one side or the other when you apply the brake, it could mean that the brake pads are wearing unevenly and may need replacing. If you need to apply the brakes in an emergency situation, it could cause an issue because you will not expect your vehicle to pull in one direction. If the brakes do not respond as they should when you press on the pedal, there could be a sign there is a leak in the brake system. Also, if the brake pedal feels soft, there could be an issue with the brake system. There could be an air leak in the brake hose or there could be a brake fluid leak.
