BG Brake Service:
If you hear a squealing noise or a metallic sounding scraping noise then your brake pads need to be inspected ASAP. Not all cars will make that squealing sound so you should not wait for that sound to decide to bring your car in for repairs. If you are in the habit of getting an oil change on a regular schedule then we will look for brake problems before they become safety problems.
If that scraping noise has changed to a grinding sound when you brake then you have allowed the brake pads to get so badly worn down that now the rotors or drums (depending upon the type of car you have) is being damaged.
Not every problem with brakes is serious. For example if you push the brake pedal and it feels soft but when you pump it repeatedly then it becomes harder then you may simply have air in the line where the brake fluid goes. If your brake pedal goes to the floor have the car towed to us. Do not drive your vehicle in this condition.
Understand that if the car pulls to one side when braking, you might have insufficient hydraulic pressure in one part of the brake system, or one brake might be sticking. Front-end problems can also cause this symptom.
Anytime you notice anything unusual with the brakes; don’t take a chance bring the car in and get it professionally checked out. We can help you with auto brake repairs for all types of vehicles.
