Do You Have Noisy Brakes?

One of the easiest ways to know if the brake pads are worn is to listen to the sounds your car makes when you brake. Hearing any sound should be your first clue that the brake pads need to be replaced soon, but the type of sound will let you know whether it's an urgent issue or if your vehicle is fine for the time being. Here's what you need to look out for:

Squeaking or Squealing

If you hear squeaking or squealing any time you hear the brakes, that lets you know that the brake pads are at their minimal level of thickness. At this point, it's still safe to drive, and doing so won't cause any damage to the brakes. With that said, there isn't too much time or miles left before the pads fully wear out, so you must have them replaced as soon as you can.


Do you hear metal grinding whenever you use the brakes? If so, your car may be in trouble, as the brake pads have fully worn out and the metal calipers are squeezing the metal brake disc. This is awful for your car's braking system and causes substantial damage to the system in the form of grooves in the brake disc or a warped rotor. It can also compromise your safety, as the vehicle won't stop as quickly compared to when it's equipped with new brake pads. Make sure you stop driving and bring your car in for brake service immediately to prevent any more damage to its braking system.
