    My brake has been squealing lately. Thanks for the advice about how the noise could be a bad brake wear and that you can try rotating them. Another thing to do is to get your brakes inspected and fixed by a licensed professional.

    This is Rich. Stumbled upon your article here very nicely written with some great advice. We do auto detail shop here in Boise Idaho and it is amazing the brake dust on some of these wheels that people want to have wheel detail done on. Many times you can just see the gouges in the rotors. We do mention this to the owners of the vehicles. Thank you for the great advice.

    I never thought about checking to see if the brake fluid is dirty! I wonder if that is the problem that I have been having. My brakes have been really touch-and-go over the past few days and really squeaky as well. I am wondering if the pads are just worn down or if there is something more serious going on. I’ll have to keep this information in mind, thank you for sharing!

    Thanks for mentioning that brake wear can be a cause of brake noise. You also said that a non-lubricated caliper could cause a lot of noise as well. I think it’s a good idea to choose a mechanic that does not have a lot of overhead, which can often be translated into higher repair prices.

    I lived in Japan for quite some time and let me tell you, they know how to make their cars last! I never once had an issue with one of my cars while I lived there, and the reason is because they are constantly servicing their car. I realized how important it is to go and get your car serviced. It may seem like a nuisance, but it could save you in the long run! Any other advice? Thanks again!

    Thanks for listing some of the common reasons for break noise, like a non-lubricated brake caliper or worn pads. It sounds like if your breaks ever start getting noisy it would be a good idea to take your vehicle in to have them serviced as soon as possible. I would think that it would be one of the most important areas of maintenance for your car.

    The automotive brakes are one of the most important mechanisms in cars. They play a very vital role in yours safety as well as in the safety of your loved ones while driving on the road. Various issues related to car brakes and their permanent solution are provided in your article which are really useful. I did not know about self-adjusting drum brakes and locked drum brakes. One thing I must tell that most people think that brakes stop the car, which is completely wrong. It is the friction of the tires against the road that slows down and stops a car- the brakes stop wheels from turning. Driving towards the destination in a car, brake is the one which is fully responsible for our safety. If for some reason it fails to work properly, then our life can be in danger. So, taking at least safety into account every one should take proper care of their car brakes before going for a drive.
