What's That Squealing and Grinding? | Maple Street Brakes

If your brakes squeal and grind when you come to a stop, it’s likely time for a new set of brakes.

You were headed back home after taking the kids to the Jurassic Holiday over the weekend when you first noticed the squealing sound every time you put your foot on the brakes. Otherwise, the brakes seemed fine but, yesterday, they added grinding sounds to the braking process.

Now you’re getting more than a little concerned about your car’s stopping power.

You’re right to be concerned. Autoguide.com explains, “If your brake pads create squealing or screeching noises every time you apply the brakes—even after they’re sufficiently warmed up—then it might be time for a new set. If the noise progresses to an angrier, grinding sound, get your car into the shop immediately: that could signify a complete lack of friction pad material, where the metal backing plate is now making contact with the brake disc. This not only is dangerous, significantly extending brake distances, but it will ruin your discs, making the repairs even costlier.”
