    Car Brake Pressure Incorrect / Uneven Diagnostics & Repair in Hamilton

    What is uneven brake pressure?Uneven brake pressure repair Hamilton

    When a car brakes, the brake calipers will apply pressure to the rotors on each wheel. This will cause your car to slow down. Uneven brake pressure occurs when the calipers apply different amounts of pressure to one or more brake rotors or brake drums. This often results in the car pulling to one side when the brakes are applied.

    Uneven brake pressure can be dangerous because it can affect the control you have over your car, especially when you need to brake rapidly. For this reason, we recommend that you get your brakes examined by a mechanic as soon as you notice the issue. 

    How to check brake pressure >

     

    Causes of uneven brake pressure:

    Brake caliper is stuck – If a brake caliper becomes jammed, it will not be able to apply pressure to the brake pad correctly. This will create uneven brake pressure. This can also be caused by a stuck piston inside the caliper.  It may also cause the brakes to be jammed on, overheating the brakes and causing damage.    

    Malfunctioning proportioning valve  – The proportioning valve is responsible for controlling the braking pressure between the front and rear brakes. If it isn’t working correctly, your car’s brake pressure will be affected. 

    Unevenly worn brake pads – If the brake pads on one side a more worn than the other, it can cause your car to pull to the left or right when you brake. You should always have all of your brake pads changed at once to prevent this issue from occurring.
