Know the Warning Signs that Your Brake Pedal Needs to be Repaired

When you press on your car’s brake pedal, it should feel firm, as though there’s enough strength to stop and hold your vehicle. A spongy pedal can be the result of several possible situations occurring within your brake system. They usually involve the brake fluid not reaching its destination to operate the parts properly.

Air in the lines is one scenario. When that occurs, the air bubble blocks the fluid’s continuous flow. To solve this situation, may only require bleeding the lines. Other problems caused by corroded lines or parts could have created blockage from rust. It could be along the lines or affecting the calipers or pads.

When you find yourself in a situation where your brake pedal isn’t reacting the way it should, it’s time to have it checked. If you’re in the local area, be sure to bring your vehicle to our service center at BMW Portland. One of our knowledgeable technicians will be happy to properly assess the cause.
