Q. Why do my brakes squeak?
Brakes squeak for a variety of reasons. It's often harmless and the result of something like temporary moisture in the brake pads. However, continuous squeals or grinding sounds should be taken very seriously as they may mean it's time for new brake pads or shoes. Worn brakes can mean longer stopping distances and difficulty stopping in emergency situations. Rotors and drums that wear thin can even become stressed to the point of cracking or breaking. If you hear squealing or grinding, bring your car to our workshop in Malvern to have your brakes checked right away.
