Brake Failure Warning Signs
If your brakes exhibit any of the following symptoms you should have them inspected.

Grinding - normally from worn out pads or shoes - needs immediate service
Pulling - if your car pulls to one side while braking, it's often a caliper problem
Dragging brakes - if a wheel is getting hot or seems like engine power loss
Squeal - while some brake noise can be normal it can also indicate a problem
Hard pedal - pedal is harder to push than normal - indicator of brake booster failure
Low pedal - if pedal sinks to floor - indication of master cylinder failure
Spongy pedal - indication of air in brake lines
Pulsating brakes - possible warped rotor, excessive runout
Brake warning light - can be serious loss in hydraulic pressure, emergency brake on
Proper brake bed-in instructions:

1: After installing new brake pads, make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 30-35 mph applying moderate pressure.

2: Make an additional 2 to 3 hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph.

3: DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!

4: Allow 15 minutes for brake system to cool down.

After step 4 your new pads are ready for use.
