Signs To Note When Your Brakes Need Servicing by AutoReportNG2: 8:09pm On Mar 27, 2017
Your car’s brakes are among the most important components of your car, which is why it’s crucial to know when they need replacing. Brakes work by creating friction with the tires, so they will eventually wear out and can start causing damage to other parts of the car. Don’t get caught on the road with faulty brakes.

Here are four ways to check if your brakes need replacing:

1. Brake Light - the easiest sign: The Brake Warning Light turns on. Sure, it sounds simple enough, but we often tend to ignore warning lights despite their importance. Do not drive your car.

2. Squeaking or grinding noise whenever the brakes are applied: If it sounds like a whistle got caught in the exhaust pipe, it’s time to replace your brakes. Use caution when driving.

3. Steering wheel becomes shaky: That could indicate a problem with your brakes. Similarly, pulsations in the brake pedal can also point to an issue. Do not drive the car; have one of our mechanics come to you.

4. Increased stopping distance: If you have to start applying your brakes much earlier than usual, it’s a sign you need to change your brakes. Use caution to drive to a safe place.

If you noticed all these signs in your car, then its time to visit your mechanic

Re: Signs To Note When Your Brakes Need Servicing by hopeforcharles(m): 7:58am On Mar 28, 2017
I kinda notice some small grinding like small stones which the mechanic confirmed and replaced with the old brakes but the noise is still there but not much, soonest I will change it.
Besides is there a way the new brake pads I brought that didn't stay long and start having the grinding sounds due to stones be smoothen? If yes how.
Thanks

fuckerstard:
How often should one replace break pads?

It depends on the car usage, if you travel a lot, the brake pads wear out faster.
However, it should be routinely checked by your mechanic at every oil change.
