If you’re finding your vehicle pulls to one side whilst driving, then chances are your brakes are not performing and are in need of diagnosis and repair or replacement.

Having good brakes is a must and faulty ones can prove to be fatal.

Most brakes commonly use friction between two surfaces (many brakes that come in good vehicles nowadays include a metallic component) pressed together to convert the kinetic energy of the moving object into heat, which if faulty can give off a loud noise. The production of this sound indicates some sort of fault in the braking system and therefore needs addressing.

How to check if my brakes need changing?

Some of the signs you should be on the lookout for include:

  • Unusual sounds being produced whenever you apply the brakes
  • If it takes more force than usual to stop the car
  • If your brakes go all the way down to the vehicle’s floor when you put your foot down
  • The car makes a strange movement whenever you apply the brakes
  • The brake pedal has spongy feel to it and isn’t firm anymore
  • The dashboard brake light is on, indicating that the braking system is not balanced.
