When the brakes in your Mercedes Benz are working in top-notch condition, you have nothing to worry about. What happens, though, when the brake light turns on, your brakes begin squealing, or you have to push the brake pedal almost to the floor before the car stops? All of those are sure signs that your Mercedes needs professional brake service from the team at Autopotenza LLC. Our certified technicians understand the detailed workings of your Mercedes and will handle your foreign luxury vehicle with the utmost of care. If you notice any of the signs below, don’t wait until it’s too late! Make an appointment today.
1. Noisy Brakes
Noisy, squealing brakes are a sure sign that the brake pads have worn down and are now rubbing directly against the rotors. If not taken care of promptly, this can permanently damage the rotors, leading to many other problems such as a shaking steering wheel, failed braking, and grinding brakes. Make an appointment for Mercedes brake service with our experienced technicians the first time you detect those noisy, grinding brakes.
2. Slow Braking
One key sign your brakes need to be serviced is slow or failed braking. If it takes longer and longer each time to brake your car to a stop, it’s imperative to have your brakes checked. Our Mercedes repair mechanics will look at the brake pads, brake fluid, rotors, and all other areas related to the braking system. We’ll diagnose the problem, repair it effectively, and have you back on the road in no time.
3. Warning Light
A clear sign you need Mercedes brake service is when the brake warning light turns on. While there could be a problem with the warning light itself, it’s always a good idea to have the brake system thoroughly checked and inspected. A warning light could also be a sign that the brake fluid is low, the brake pads are worn down, or there’s brake fluid leaking.
