If you hear a high pitch sound when applying your brake, that is one sign it may be time to replace your brake system. The later a brake repair is caught the more it could cost you. That’s why, as a car owner, it is important to stay up-to-date with vehicle maintenance and repairs. At Kia of Murfreesboro, our service consultants will inspect and replace your brakes. The car braking system consists of more than 15 parts. However, when people are replacing their brakes, they are most commonly referring to the brake rotors, brake pads, and brake calipers. These items work together to bring your car to a stop.
Inspect your brakes at Kia of Murfreesboro. Also, serving the Nashville and Smyrna areas.
In the braking system, the brake pads grip the disk or rotors to stop the wheels of your car from moving. Imagine yourself clapping your hands together to smash a bug, that is how the two brake pads come together to smack or grip the rotor. Over time, this natural movement wears down the brake pad, and it will eventually need to be replaced. Replacing the brake pad is a moderate, but necessary expense. Delaying your brake repair by continuing to drive on worn brake pads can put a strain on other areas of your car such as the brake rotors and brake calipers. What could have been a moderate expense is now starting to add up.
A brake rotor is a round object made of iron that sits in between the two brake pads. The brake rotor’s wear and tear pattern will match the wear and tear pattern of the brake pads. During a brake repair, your brake rotor will either be replaced or smoothed depending on how worn your brake rotor is. Again, the longer you wait, the worst the problem will get. A worn rotor is a safety hazard to you and others on the road. A worn rotor can prevent your car from stopping. The service consultants at Kia of Murfreesboro will make certain your brake rotor meets the required level of thickness to ensure your car is safe to drive
The brake calipers are the objects that hold your brake pads. You can avoid this repair by bringing your car in before the brake pads are extremely worn. Remember, the more worn your brake pads are, the more likely you have damage or wear to other parts of your braking system.
