The brakes have different ways of showing the driver the attention they need. They can make unpleasant noises, or they can create the feeling of ‘weakness’ on the brake pedal. But there is something else that tells you that something is wrong with the brakes.

When applying the brakes to your car, it should stop directly from a brake pressure and in a straight line. Sometimes, the driver may notice that the car pulls to one side or the other during braking. This is usually misdiagnosed as a grouping problem although it can cause serious problems within the vehicle’s braking system.

What makes a car pull on one side during braking? In simple terms, there is a difference in braking force on the front wheels. Generally, the vehicle brakes in a straight line if the braking force on both front wheels is equal. If this does not happen, it means that the brakes on one side are not working as well as on the other.

If you do not check and adjust in time, this can cause brake wear, damage to the brake system components and less road safety.

Occasionally, low-quality brake pedals may break during heavy use. In some cases, they crack over time, until some of the pedal’s friction material is detached. This makes the brake pedal smaller, reduces braking performance on the wheel, and makes the car pull on one side.

Brakes are a very important component, and that plays a big role in car safety. So check it constantly, and perform the right services for a safe, trouble-free drive.
