The Signs It's Time for Brake Service in Indio


A post shared by Ford Motor Company (@ford) on

The ability to stop on a dime is imperative to your safety on the Indio roads. How do you make sure that you'll always be able to do that? With routine brake service and maintenance. Be sure to recognize the signs that it's time for brake service.

  • Brake pads should be at least a quarter of an inch thick. When they become thinner than that because of wear and tear, it's time to replace them. If you wait until they're totally worn down to replace them...
  • ...your calipers and rotors will start rubbing together, creating a grinding sound every time you apply the brakes. You won't just have to replace your brake pads, but your rotors as well.
  • Squealing brakes can be another sign it's time for service. Squealing is pretty normal when the roads are wet, but when it happens all the time, it's usually a built in indicator that your brakes are wearing out.
