Why are my brake pads making a squeaking or grinding noise?
The most common reason for noisy brakes is due to worn out brake pads or discs/rotors. Over time, brake pads wear down and lose their effectiveness in gripping the rotors. This causes the rotor to become uneven and can cause the brakes to vibrate, leading to a noisy brakes. It is important to have your brakes inspected or changed when these noises occur. Worn out brakes will affect your vehicle's ability to slow down and can be dangerous to drive.
