Here's some common problems that might help you identify what's wrong with your brakes...

 

Brake pad warning light on  this is indicating that your brake pads need replacing.

 

Grinding – this normally happens when the brake pads are completely worn out with the metal backing coming in to contact with the brake discs.

 

Pulsating through the pedal – this pulsating sensation is usually a sign that your brake discs are warped due to excessive heat. Commonly caused by a sticking brake calliper.

 

Pulling to one side when braking – usually a sign of a seized or sticking calliper or a fault with the hydraulics system.

 

Soft brake pedal – when your brake pedal feels soft and brakes unresponsively this is usually a sign of air in the hydraulic circuit or brake fluid leaks.
