As the part of your car that brings you to a complete stop, brakes are absolutely essential. Brakes are about the last thing that you want to neglect when it comes to Audi maintenance. If you’re asking yourself, "where can I find new brakes near me," the answer is Audi Silver Spring.

Our team of certified Audi mechanics is happy to share some of the most common signs that you need new brakes.  

Warning Signs of Brake Problems 

Here are some of the most common signs that you need to get your brakes replaced with genuine OEM Audi parts.  

  • Brake light on: Newer Audi models have a brake warning light on the dashboard that will illuminate when the vehicle senses brake trouble. Do not ignore this light.  
  • Squeaking, squealing, or grinding noises: When your car is making unusual noises, it’s an indication that you need to schedule a service appointment. In the case of brakes, these sounds could be a sign of problems with your brake pads or rotors.  
  • Wobbling, vibration, or scraping while braking: Shaking in the steering wheel or vibration when you apply the brakes may occur due to an uneven rotor.  
  • Leaking fluid: If you’re experiencing a soft brake pedal, have one of our technicians look for fluid leaks from the master cylinder or elsewhere in the brake system.  
  • Burning smell while driving: A sharp, chemical-like odor after repeated hard braking on steep roads is a sign of overheated brakes or clutch. If you notice this, pull over immediately and contact an Audi technician.
