The brakes will start to make noises as they show signs of wear and age. When this happens, make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. Also remember to follow proper brake maintenance schedules for your vehicle. If there is a grinding noise for your vehicle when you apply the brakes, it means the brake pads have worn. As the material of the brake pads decrease, the brake rotors will start to wear as well. This is because of the metal to metal contact between the two. The calipers will start to wear and will need to be replaced in time as well. If you wonder why the brakes are making a noise, it is always best to schedule an appointment.
Why there is a Thud noise
There could also be a thud or thump noise when you apply the brakes as well. This can be the rear drum brakes of the vehicle. These are located in the back of the vehicle as well. Brake drums get resurfaced once in a while. If they are not, you may start to hear this noise. If you notice this issue, make sure to contact us and we can inspect the brakes for you. If there is an issue, we can replace them as soon as possible.
A Squeak Noise
Another noise could be a squeak or squeal noise. As the brake pads wear, they will start to make a high pitched squeak noise. By having good quality brakes and regular maintenance, you can help to prevent this noise from your vehicle. The brake wear indicator may also be causing the noise. This means the metal tab is starting to wear against the brake rotor. The brake pads are thin, so if you hear this noise, make sure to have it looked at as soon as possible for your vehicle. When you do so, you can help prevent further issues with the brakes and your vehicle.
