Why do my brakes squeak?

Why do my brakes squeak?


Brakes are an essential part of any vehicle and ensure a smooth, safe ride. However, over time they can begin to squeak or squeal. This can be annoying and embarrassing, but it's important to understand the cause of this problem so you can fix it accordingly.

There are a few reasons why your brakes may start to squeak. One possibility is that your brake pads are getting old and need to be replaced. Another possibility is that your brakes are dirty and need to be cleaned. Lastly, it's possible that you have a loose brake caliper or other components that need to be tightened.


If you're experiencing Brake noise, the first thing you should do is bring your car to a Brake Shop or Auto Repair center so they can take a look and diagnose the problem. From there, they'll be able to tell you what needs to be done to fix it.
