Squealing Brakes | Wichita Brakes

Your brakes are trying to tell you something when they squeal. Tracy’s Automotive can help you with that.

You were on your way home from the Space Museum in Hutchinson when the noise began. Every time you put on your brakes, they’d make a squealing or squeaking noise. The noise is very irritating.

Brake squealing is not only irritating, it’s also an indication that something could be wrong with your brakes. Most likely, according to carfax.com, it’s a warning that it’s time for a new set of brake pads. But, carfax.com says, it could indicate other issues:

“Disc brakes and drum brakes have friction material called brake pads and brake linings. Sometimes, the squeaking could be the result of rust being scraped off the rotors — the metal discs onto which the brake pads grab — or moisture or dirt accumulating on the rotors, which might need cleaning and lubrication. The brake calipers could be loose or sticking. It could also be a bad shim or a brake pad that was mounted too loosely. There’s also the possibility that brake dust has glazed the rotors, making them smooth and glassy, and not providing much of a surface for the brake pads to grasp. Perhaps you bought cheap brake pads, which tend to make more noise. Any of these could be the source of squeaky brakes.”
