Welcome back to MJN Automotive's blog series. Today, we're focusing on a crucial aspect of your vehicle's safety – the braking system. As your trusted mechanic in Nowra, we're here to guide you through understanding and maintaining your brakes.

How Your Vehicle's Brakes Work

Brakes are essential for controlling your vehicle. They consist of pads, rotors, calipers, and brake fluid. When you press the brake pedal, the caliper squeezes the brake pads against the rotors, slowing down your car through friction.

Signs of Brake Issues

Stay alert to these common warning signs:

  • Squealing or grinding noises.

  • Longer stopping distances.

  • Vibration during braking.

Routine Brake Maintenance Tips

Regular brake maintenance includes:

  • Checking brake pads for wear.

  • Inspecting rotors for warps or cracks.

  • Ensuring brake fluid is at the correct level and quality.

  • Seeking professional inspections for accurate assessment.
