Common Warning Signs of Worn Brake Pads

Brake pads are put under plenty of strain even during a quick trip into Cookeville, so they’ll usually be replaced every 5,000 miles. Just a few signs your brake pads may have become worn sooner than expected include:

  • Sound of Grinding Metal During Braking
  • Screeching or Squealing Sound During Braking
  • Brake Pedal Vibration During Braking
  • Increasingly Long Stopping Distances
  • Active Brake Lights When Brakes Aren’t Applied

If you’re worried, you can always take a look yourself. If any brake pad appears less than a quarter of an inch thick, it’s time to schedule servicing.

 

Common Warning Signs of Worn Brake Rotors

Brake rotors can also be visually inspected for signs of wear. You can find them mounted to the wheel hub behind the hubcap, and any surface cracks should be a clear cause for concern. Since brake rotors generally go anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles before needing to be replaced, you’re unlikely to notice any signs of wear for a long time to come, but you should still watch out for:

  • Sound of Grinding Metal During Braking
  • Steering Wheel Vibration During Braking
  • Increasingly Long Stopping Distances
