Don’t let brake noise get you down! Not all squeaky brakes need to be replaced. Just like other parts on your vehicle, sometimes all your noisy brakes need is just a little bit of maintenance!


It’s important to note that there are two ways to determine whether or not the brake pads will need to be replaced:

1) Visually:

If you see that the depth of the pad is less than 1/4 inch – you need to replace it, and soon! If you see that it’s less than 1/8 inch, there isn’t any time to waste as you are getting really close on damaging the rotor! You need to get your brakes serviced as quickly as possible.

2) Audibly:

If you are hearing a screeching sound when you put your foot on the brake, this is a bad sign. You are overdue for a brake service. If it sounds more like scraping on metal, then you might have damaged your rotors and you need to fix the brakes immediately otherwise you could cause major damage. It is also recommended that you try to get the rotors resurfaced or changed, depending on the recommendations of a qualified service technician.

Changing your brake pads too soon is much better than changing them too late. If you wait too long to service your brakes, you can cause damage to other parts of the brake system like brake calipers, ABS pumps and modules, hydraulic brake lines or other parts of the braking system.
