Recognizing Brake Pedal Hazards


A pedal that feels soft or spongy when pressed is potentially putting car passengers at risk. Brake pedals are designed to feel firm to the touch and there are a variety of different issues which can cause leaking brake fluid and loss of firmness in brake pedals. Damaged brake lines due to rust corrosion and air in the brake lines are two of the most common causes of a soft brake pedal. A worn down or leaking master cylinder or corroded wheel cylinders can also cause brake fluid to leak, leading to faulty brake pedals. Lastly, leaking brake fluid as a result of corroded disc brake calipers can also spark weak brake pedals.
