Signs Your Brake Pedal Needs to be Repaired

Your brake pedal should give you a feeling of confidence that it’s going to be able to stop and hold your vehicle. If the opposite is true, perhaps the pedal feels soft, then it’s time to have it checked. There could be a number of reasons for the pedal to lose firmness.

You may have a small leak in the lines. The lines are constructed of steel and can corrode and rust over time. When there’s a block, or the lines are leaking, there isn’t enough pressure available to force the caliper to press the pads and rotor together. That creates the sponginess you may feel as you press the brake.

It’s recommended to have your brakes checked any time you notice a change in their performance. Stop in to BMW of Rochester Hills. We’re happy to take a look at them and assist you with any aspect of your car’s performance.
