Signs Your Brakes Might Need Repairs or Replacement
If you hear a squeaking sounds or grinding noises when you slow down while driving, these may be signs that your brakes need repair. With the stop-and-go traffic commuting from Spring or Cypress to Houston on the Beltway or I-45, your brakes get used a lot! If you’re taking children to school and taking care of business during the school day, your brakes get a workout, too.
As brake pads wear down, small indicators in the rotor system emit a high-pitched squeal. If you continue to log more miles without having the brake pads replaced, this part of the brake system will eventually wear away. Not replacing brake pads when you’re hearing a grinding or metal scraping sound during braking, means metal is grinding against metal on your brakes. This grinding on un-repaired brakes can potentially causing significant damage to the rotors.
Maintaining your car’s brake system ensures you can stop when you need to, and keep your family safe on the roads.
Other brake issues include air in the brake lines or low fluid levels, which can make the brake pedal feel “spongy” and hard to press down, or maladjusted brakes that cause your car to pull to one side. If your brake pedal or steering wheel vibrates when slowing or stopping, it could be a sign that the rotors are warped.
The expert service technicians at Auto-Lab Texas use the latest diagnostic equipment to pinpoint issues with your brake system and make recommendations concerning critical repairs, as well as ongoing maintenance issues that can keep you safe and save you money over time.

When replacing brake pads, we take care to install only the components engineered for your specific make and model of vehicle to prevent damage to the rotors.
