Let's begin with this scenario. You hear some brake noise when backing out of the garage but don't hear noise under normal braking. Should this be enough to get it inspected? This could be signaling a need for adjustment or grease, maybe shims, or it could mean you're close to needing new brakes. Either way, if this noise continues or worsens then having a brake inspection is the first step. For more information on braking issues please visit our Brake Repair Page or give us a call.
In this video, we describe the most common brake components and how they work.
