WHAT CAUSES SQUEAKY BRAKES, AND DO THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED?
Squeaky brakes can occur for many reasons. Most brake pads are designed to start making noise when they are worn down to the last 25%. This squeaky or squealing noise can be an indicator that it is time to have your brakes inspected and possibly replaced. Brake noise can occur for other reasons than worn out pads, however. Moisture can cause brake rotors, which are unfinished metal, to rust as quickly as overnight. This is normal, and can lead to a grinding noise, which will last until the surface rust is removed. Hard braking creates heat, which can glaze brake pads and cause a squeaky brake noise. Also, long-life brake pads are harder and can emit noise as part of their normal operation.
Common causes of squeaky brakes:
Worn out pads Brake rotor rust Hard braking Long-life brake pads So how can you tell if the noise coming from your brakes is a sign of wear (and might need replacing), and what can you do to stop the noise if the brake pads are NOT worn? A good start is keeping track of your vehicle’s service intervals. A typical set of front brake pads will last about 30,000 miles, while a set of rear pads will last about twice that long. This can vary depending on driving habits and also how often you drive down hills. Heavy stop and go driving, carrying heavy loads, or towing will shorten the life of brakes, while highway driving will extend pad life. Knowing how many miles it has been since your last brake service will allow you to estimate how much life is left in your brake pads. Having your brake pads visually inspected when you rotate your tires is also a good practice, since your tires should be rotated every 5,000 miles to ensure their longest service. The grinding noise caused by surface rust on the brake rotors and the squeal caused by glazed brake pads can be addressed by driving a short distance (1/10th or 2/10th of a mile) at normal speeds with your foot lightly on the brake pedal. This will remove any surface rust or glazing. If the noise continues, a brake inspection at Express Brakes Ja. may be in order. Lastly, if you installed “lifetime” or extended life brake pads, a certain amount of noise is unavoidable, due to the harder composition of these pads.
For the Jamaican consumer if you find that the genuine pads are expensive then we recommend you purchase the Nishimbo brand of brake pads which work just as well as the genuine pads.
