Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission Vehicle Maintenance Tips and Videos: Brake Noise

Your brake pads are the critical parts that rub against the rotor (or disc) to slow and stop your auto. They eventually wear down. When your pads are worn too much, they won’t stop your vehicle as well. When the friction material is worn away, metal parts of the pad are exposed and you’ll hear a squeal or grinding sound.
