Signs Your Brake Pedal Needs to be Repaired

It’s easy to take for granted that your brakes are going to respond appropriately when you depress the brake pedal. When the opposite is true, perhaps a soft pedal, it’s time to have the system inspected. Improper pressure on your brake pedal is typically an indication that fluid isn’t traveling through the lines as it should. There are several possibilities for this situation.

One of them is that the lines have gotten air in them. That air is causing a bubble of resistance which won’t allow the fluid to flow. Sometimes, bleeding and refilling the lines is all that’s necessary. There could also be corrosion at some point in the system. A blockage from a rusted piece can happen in the line, at the caliper, or brake pads. If that’s the case, a determination will need to be made on what the repair will require.
