If you brakes are still squeaking after you change your brake pads in any car, you have a warped rotor. The squeaking is caused by the rotor vibrating when pressure is applied by the pads.

This can also cause accelerated wear on the new pads if you do not replace the rotors at the same time, or at least have them turned.

Why are your brakes squeaking?

Like any other moving part on your car, the brake system is intended to wear out over a period of time. Brakes are vital for safe stopping, so when they display any issues, like squealing, squeaking, or a soft brake pedal – it should be inspected by a professional mechanic as soon as possible. While minor problems can cause squeaking or squealing noises, once the brakes start grinding, it’s a definite sign they need to be replaced. If you are caught up in this situation in the middle of the road, you can still drive slowly but it’s best to call a Cape Coral car removal service since this can prevent accidents once the brakes malfunction. Call these numbers for a speedy response, 239-458-3333 or 239-656-4030.
