Q: Hearing brake noise

asked by on

There is a noise coming from the car, including brake noise.

First the noise needs to be tracked down to the specific components or system affected. Noises can come from worn components along the suspension system. Wheel bearings or drive belt pulleys are common failure items. Brake pads will definitely cause noise when they are nearly worn out. Have an experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the vehicle for the source of the noise.
