Automotive Tips from Multistate Transmissions: Brake Noise

Your brake pads are the important parts that rub against the rotor (or disc) to slow and stop your car when driving in FORT WORTH. They eventually wear down.When your pads are worn too much, they won’t stop your vehicle as well. When the friction material is worn away, metal parts of the pad are exposed and you’ll hear a squeal or grinding sound. That’s when FORT WORTH drivers should replace their brake pads at Multistate Transmissions. Not only will new pads restore your stopping power, but replacing them on time will prevent damage to the rotor.If your brakes are making noise, ask your Multistate Transmissions service advisor to inspect your brakes. Addressing problems early will restore your safety and prevent expensive brake damage.Multistate Transmissions3850 HEMPHILL STFORT WORTH, TX 7611081
