What’s Wrong With Your Brakes?
If you’re having problems with your Rover’s braking system, we don’t find it enough to simply bring it in for service. Although it is a smart idea to have your car serviced by a professional, our mission is to make sure you’re driving in a high-quality Rover. For that to happen, it takes more than just bringing it in for service. It takes an understanding of your car’s brakes and the warning signs that come with it. This information helps you prevent problems or, at the very least, avoid the problems from worsening. Here are some common trouble signs you need to look out for and what you need to do once you notice it:
Squeaking or Squealing: Although it may be normal to hear some squeaking or squealing, especially in cold weather, it isn’t normal if you hear this every time you use them. If this is something you’re experiencing, it’s the brake pads letting you know that they're about to wear out completely. Although the brakes are fine for the meantime, make sure to have the pads replaced promptly or risk metal-on-metal contact within the system.
Grinding: If you hear grinding, we ask that you please stop driving your vehicle and bring it to our shop immediately. Whenever you hear this sound, it means the metal calipers are squeezing on the metal brake disc and that the brake pads protecting the calipers have worn out. This can lead to numerous problems within the braking system and significant damage. The quicker you act, the better your chances are of limiting the damage and restoring your Rover’s braking capabilities.
