brake problemsMany problems can happen from your car’s braking system, and since your brakes are important to your on-road safety, you should know when your brakes need attention. So to avoid paying for costly brake repairs, let’s take a look at the common signs of brakes problems.

Brake warning light

If your brake warning light comes on your dashboard, this is a sure sign that you need to call in your mobile car mechanic to investigate the problem. Ignoring your brake light will only lead to more serious problems down the road.

Car pulls to one side

When you engage the brakes, if the car pulls to one side it could mean a number of problems. Your brake fluid may be leaking, your brakes might need to be replaced because they are worn or they could just need adjusting. Brake repairs don’t always cost an arm and a leg, because a simple adjustment isn’t all that expensive.

Car vibrates when you brake

When you engage the brakes, if your car or steering wheel or brake pedal vibrates, then it is likely that you have problems with your rotors. These are not too expensive to fix actually, so don’t worry about the cost, just make sure you call us for your brake repairs and we will fix them straight away.

Shrieking brakes

When you engage the brakes and you hear a screeching sound, all these means is that your brake pads need replacing. This is not a huge or expensive problem if seen to straight away. So simply set a date for your mobile mechanic to call around and you will be on the road in no time at all.

Grinding brakes

If you have ignored your screeching brakes for long enough, you will start to hear a grinding noise instead. This means that your brake rotors are beyond saving and there might be other problems as well. This might be an expensive fix, it just depends on what is involved.
