  • How do you tell if your brakes need servicing or replacing?
  • Increased braking distance every time you need the car to come to a stop.
  • A squealing sound produced when you step on the brake lever.
  • You may notice a spongy feel while braking. In other instances, you may be required to exert more effort for the braking system to work. This means that the brake pedal touches the vehicle’s floor.
  • You may notice your vehicle moving either to the right or left side while applying the brakes.
