If you are experiencing noises when applying the brakes or the whole vehicle starts shaking or vibrating, there is a definite problem that must be addressed. It is likely that you have rotors that have become warped or “out of round.” A brake technician will carefully inspect the rotors and first remove any rust, lubricate all parts, clean each component, check for proper torque and test the rotors to see if there is any improvement in performance. If there is no longer an issue, your brakes are now fine. If these remedies did not work, it will be necessary to replace the rotors.

ABS activation is another common occurrence. The anti-lock brake system activates and your brake pedal drops to the floor. This situation is related to the interior sensors of the brake system. It is usually one of two circumstances:

  • The air gap between the trigger wheel and sensor tip is too large or small.
  • The speed of the trigger wheel is not where it should be.
