Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?

Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?

What is that awful squeaking, grinding noise from the front of my car? Well, it could be something wrong with your braking system  From brake pads, rotors, brake lines to brake fluid, your brakes are essential for driving safely. Most cars have a brake pad wear alarm and or light on the instrument cluster to alert you of any problems. The majority of the time it’s usually normal brake pad wear and the pads just need to be changed. But sometimes brakes will fail due to caliper, rotor malfunction or even a broken brake line or brake booster failure. Anytime you suspect any of these signs you must have your brakes checked out. Also during the winter months you could have road chemicals and debris that have accumulated on the calipers, pads, rotors and brake lines, creating extra wear and tear of the system.
