Ever wonder how to tell if your brakes need to be replaced? One sure sign is if you are sliding to a stop when you step on the brake pedal. If this is happening, it is definitely time to schedule a brake repair service for an inspection of your brakes.

Unfortunately, your service manual won’t have a set schedule as to when to replace your brakes. The lifespan of your brakes is largely determined by your style of driving, such as road conditions (stop-and-go, mountainous, or level), the weight of your vehicle (passenger plus cargo limits), how you use your vehicle (towing, carrying heavy loads), and the quality of your brake materials (higher quality or the cheapest you can find).

Here are six signs how to tell if your brakes need to be replaced:

  • Noisy brakes – When the pads need replacing, the built-in wear sensors will scrape against the brake disc creating a screeching or squealing sound. If the pads become completely worn down, you will hear metal-on-metal grinding.
  • Vibrating – You can feel the brake pedal vibrate if the disc is warped.
  • Leaking brake fluid – Brake fluid leaking onto the hot motor will create a burnt odor.
  • Longer stopping distances – If you are pushing the brake pedal further down to the floormeans you are traveling a longer distance before coming to a stop.
  • Steering problems – If the front brake pads are worn down to far, you may feel the steering wheel tug to one side or the other while braking.
  • Warning light – An electronic wear indicator will alert illuminate a dash warning light if the pads wear down to a specified measurement.

Tip to remember: A visual inspection of your brakes is still the best way to check the condition of your brakes.Many vehicle owners will ask for an inspection of their braking system with a tire rotation service (about every six months).
