The noises you are hearing are a distress signal. You may find that your brakes are grinding, which means metal components are meeting with each other, which they are not designed to do. This can cause further problems not only with overheating your discs and distorting them but also overheating calipers and pushing pistons out much further than they are designed to go. This means seals can perish and cause further damage to your calipers. Your brakes are trying to let you know that they are worn out. Many vehicles are equipped with sensors that transmit a high-pitched sound to alert you that it's time to replace your pads. Other vehicles have sensors that show warning signals on your dash, either way, do not ignore these warning symbols.
If you are hearing a grinding noise coming from your vehicle
This means that your vehicle's brakes are completely worn down. It’s hard to stop a vehicle with worn out brake pads, in fact, you will find your stopping distances are much longer. Catching your brakes when they first start to make noises can often save costly repairs. Regular brake servicing will help you avoid the hazards that come with worn brakes. The FastFit Centre can inspect your brakes and perform the service that keeps you safe and on the road.

Facts about your brakes
Brakes are designed to be replaced at 40000 miles, however, there are many factors that determine how long they will last including vehicle type, driving style, and the brake pads that have previously been fitted which will all affect the lifespan of brakes.
If you think there might be a problem with your brakes, get them checked by The FastFit Centre today.
We have listed some of the signs we think you should look out for and the telltale signs of worn brakes.
What to watch out for...
Being aware of your mileage gives you a good gauge to monitor your brakes' life. Brakes naturally deteriorate over time, being subjected to heat on a regular basis. Brake discs should always be replaced in pairs never singularly and new pads always replaced at the same time as discs. Discs should be replaced at around 40, 000 miles, while pads every 25, 000 miles.
A high-pitched or grinding sound can mean metal components are grinding together where there was once a pad. if you hear grinding noises, we suggest you stop driving your car immediately! We offer a pickup service meaning if your brakes are in a condition where they should not be used or it is not safe to use the vehicle, we can pick up your vehicle for you. If you hear unusual sounds when you press the brake pedal, there could be a problem with your brake system. The sound will be audible while the windows are up, however, not necessarily loud enough to hear over the radio. You may also notice a squeaking sound if the car has been parked in the rain or standing in water for long periods of time.
Leaks on the inner wheels
Your braking system is complex. If there are worn seals, loose connections or split hoses in the system, air and fluid can leak out, affecting your ability to brake. Look out for fluid on the inner wheels - brake fluid is normally clear, with a slight odour.
Pulling to the left or right. When you brake, does your car pull towards the left or right? As you press the brake pedal the pads need to be applied equally, and if one is worn more than the other, pulling to one side may occur. Another potential cause may be a sticking or failing brake caliper.
If you notice some vibration in your steering wheel or brake pedal as you slow down, get your brakes checked. A vibration in your brake pedal is a sign that your brake discs are warped.
Drivers also need to be aware of how responsive their brakes are. If you have to press the pedal nearly all the way to the floor before the car starts to slow down, this could be down to a problem with your hydraulic braking system.
If your dashboard is displaying the brake warning light, get your car checked immediately. This is likely an indication that the brake hydraulic system has failed. Do not drive your vehicle under any circumstances in this condition, not even to The FastFit Centre in St Helens, Merseyside as we will be able to pick up your vehicle ensuring complete safety.
