Do You Have Bad Brakes?
The best way to ensure your BMW’s braking system is always performing at its best is to have it regularly serviced. Many BMW’s come equipped with a CBS system that informs you when a specific component or system needs service. This allows you to get ahead of an issue well before it worsens. But even with this system, it’s still important to understand the common signs of brake degradation. If you suspect brake failure in your BMW, make sure you look for these classic warning signals!
You should never hear any sound come from your BMW’s braking system and if you do, that’s a sign something wrong is going on. There are three sounds you need to pay attention to — squeaking or squealing and grinding. If you hear squeaking or squealing, that means the brake pads have reached their minimum level of thickness. Although the brakes are fine for the time being, it’s important to have them replaced soon. If you hear grinding, you’ve waited too long to replace the brake pads and there’s metal-on-metal contact between the calipers and brake disc. This is awful for the brake system and can cause significant damage to it, so we recommend service as soon as possible to ensure no further damage occurs.
When you press on the brake pedal, your vehicle should immediately respond to your action. Even the lightest tap should activate your BMW’s braking system. If you notice that you’re having to apply more pressure to the pedal in order to activate the brakes, that indicates you’re dealing with a spongy brake pedal. This is typically due to air or moisture being trapped in the brake lines, and you’ll need professional help to properly to get rid of it. This not only is annoying to deal with, but it’s also dangerous, as you lack the quick response your BMW typically provides.
