Why are my Brakes Squeaking?

Common Causes for Squeaky Brakes



Worn Brake Pads

If you're hearing a squeak when braking, there's a good chance it's due to your brake pads. Over time, brake pads can wear down and become thinner, which causes them to rub against the brake rotors and make that characteristic squealing noise. In some cases, the brake pads may even become completely worn out, which can lead to more serious braking issues.

Warped Rotors

Warped brake rotors can also cause a squeaking noise, as they can cause the brake pads to vibrate. When this occurs, not only will you hear it, you will feel it! If you suspect that your brake rotors may be warped, it's important to have them checked out by a professional as soon as possible, as this can be a serious safety issue.
