Brakes are one of the most crucial parts of your car. They can suppose a serious safety hazard if not working properly. This is why you should have a brake repair shop check them out as soon as you suspect something might be wrong. In this video, you will learn about some of the most common brake issues.
The first thing you will want to check is the brake fluid level. Give it a little shake and see if the fluid is between and maximum and minimum lines. Also make sure to check for any leaks. If you do not see any leaks internally, check the brake lines that run under your vehicle. You are looking for signs of leakage or corrosion. Lastly, check the hoses and calipers for leaks as well.
If no leaks are present, you will want to remove the rear drum breaks to check the wheel cylinder. Also check the pad lining for worn shoes. You may also notice rust on the rotors. This is because the pad is not aligned properly with the rotor. This means that these parts will have to be replaced.
