    If I had a "minor" problem with my brakes, would Tektro replace it?

    Minor problems include:
    Squealing
    Loss of brake power
    Dragging
    Constant need of adjusting
    Anyone with any knowledge - help please! Thanks in advance.

    I doubt very much that Tektro will replace your brakes because of the problems you're having.

    Squealing isn't uncommon with disc brakes.

    Loss of power might be brake fade, more info is needed.

    Dragging might be from not being adjusted properly or a warped rotor.

    Mechanical disc brakes will need adjusting, they aren't something you setup once and leave. How regular you need to adjust them depends how often you use them, what sort of environment you ride in, pad composition, etc.

    Have you looked at the manual ? Tektro IO Manual

    There can be a fine line between a well setup brake and a poorly setup brake.

    How long have you had these brakes ?
    Were they on a bike you bought or did you buy them & put them on your bike ?
