Brake Light On
BMWs have multiple ways of letting you know brake service is due. An actual failure of the braking pressure, fluid level, traction control or ABS systems will cause the actual word “brake” to be displayed either in yellow or red depending on what fault is occurring. A brake pad warning lamp will be shown if the vehicle’s brake pads are at their minimum, or on some vehicles, an actual message will be displayed indicating “Check brake linings, visit workshop.” So when you see the Brake light, bring your vehicle into Autoscope.
Brakes are Squealing
Brakes are Jerky
If your brakes are pulling during use, this can be caused by a brake fluid leak onto the pad surface causing loss of friction or a faulty brake hose. If they are shimmying while braking, the most common cause is warped brake rotors. Brake rotors can warp from being too thin to handle the heat generated from braking, or due to pad material being imbedded into one spot on the rotor causing a surface that is no longer uniform.
Autoscope has trained BMW technicians to ensure you get the quality brake service you need at affordable prices. Call any of our three locations to make an appointment.
