Q: Brakes making a noise.

asked by on

I hear a grinding, squealing, or screeching noise when I apply the brakes.

Brake noise is pretty common. Mostly likely, you could use a brake service with new pads and machined or new rotors. The technicians at YourMechanic are brake experts. They would be happy to inspect your brakes and let you know exactly what brake components to replace.
