You can’t underestimate the importance of brakes for the safety of a vehicle. Fortunately, you have a trusted partner in us who can help you determine when you need help with replacing your Ford vehicle brakes, whether it’s an F-150, Focus, or Explorer – we’ll help with them all!
Brakes on your Ford vehicle
Most Ford vehicles have a fairly simple braking system relying on a combination of a cylinder of brake fluid under the hood, some metal linkages, a foot pedal, and a slice of metal known as a brake which is applied to your axle to slow you down when you want. Keeping this system well-maintained becomes rather important to be able to slow down and stop when you want.
Regular Brake Maintenance for your Ford
If you don’t know how to inspect your brakes to ensure their proper function, you can definitely bring your F-150, Fusion, or whatever Ford you have to us and we’ll take a look. We can tell you how much brake pad you have left in addition to detecting any leaks from the master cylinder under the hood and whether or not you likely have rotor wear.
The key here is regular maintenance. Without regular maintenance, your life can readily be interrupted by an unsafe or broken-down vehicle.
How to tell your Ford brakes are worn
Brakes produce a couple of fairly common signs of a problem. Thankfully, one is obvious and less dangerous: Brakes intentionally produce a high-pitched squeal when they are nearly worn out and are braking. The noise is meant to be rather annoying and a good indicator your brake pads are wearing thin. An overly worn brake pad can make your rotors take the impact of braking and result in the more expensive replacement of those parts too.
We suggest you bring your vehicle in if starts screeching. To be honest, the next level of testing is when your brakes are grinding and your vehicle becomes tougher to slow down, which is dangerous and unpredictable.
