Do you know that even a small problem with the brake system can make a vehicle unsafe to drive? Brakes are most essential during an emergency stop. Obviously, while buying used brakes, it is very important to check the brakes performance. The efficiency of the brakes even matters when car is parked for a long time.
When one depresses the brake pedal, the car transmits the force from foot to the brakes through a fluid. Next, the brakes transmit the force to the tires using friction, and the tires transmit that force to the road by means of friction as well. You can discover possible problems with brakes (front/rear) at an early stage with the help of help of following tips. Keep a regular check on fluid level in the brake fluid container. It should not be low. Normally, it should be close to the “Max” mark. The brake fluid container should not have any leaks. Low level of the brake fluid is one of the first indications that brake pads are worn out. If you find such symptoms then take the car to a garage for an inspection.
In case, the brake warning lights gets on while driving or the vehicle pulls aside during braking, they indicate a problem in the car’s brake system. Another indication includes pulsating of the brake pedal or vibrating of the vehicle during braking (one can feel it from the steering wheel). One should also take care that the brake pedal is neither too hard nor too spongy. Ensure that the brake pedal does not go down too far. Avoid buying the used brakes (front/rear) that make a lot of screeching, squeaking or grinding noise while braking.
The brake fluid that flows through the steel brake lines and flexible rubber hoses is a very important component. It must remain clean and should not attain high temperature during hard braking. In the case of used brakes (front/rear), brake fluid should be flushed and replaced after every two years to prevent corrosion and to maintain performance.
Do not try to spray, touch or drip any oil or lubricants on the brake friction surface. If you do this accidentally, immediately spray your brake cleaner to remove it completely. Make it a habit to clean your used brakes (front/rear) at the same time you wash your car. This keeps dust and dirt off the pads and makes used brakes (front/rear) easier to inspect and work on. Needless to say, used brakes (front/rear) are much cost effective than the new ones.
