Your brakes should be practically undetectable—that is to say, they shouldn’t make any noises. The fact of the matter is that noisy brakes are typically an indication that you need to visit your automotive repair shop. Use this video to spot the symptoms of a dangerously neglected brake repair.
There are three major warning noises made by vehicle brakes. A high-pitched squeal indicates a brake wear warning indicator. The next stage of brake damage is a loud, metallic grind that comes from worn brakes hitting a rotor. Finally, a squeaking that occurs directly after a break repair may indicate a poor installation.
