Common Car Brake Noises

28 August 2019

Your car's brake system is something so easily neglected, much to our detriment when it's too late. Recently, our team at Stouch Auto and Mechanical have seen a spike in brake servicing requirements in Brisbane's southside, sparked by owners citing one of the following common brake noises:

1. Squeaking Brake Noises

Squeaking brake noises are the most commonly reported brake noise from our clients. Often, it's not cause for immediate concern, however, squeaking noises are indicative that your car's brakes need to be inspected. Squeaking brakes may occur due to excessive wear. Worn brakes mean brake pads have deteriorated to a point where the wear indicator is rubbing too closely with the rotor. Squeaking brakes may also shed light on brake systems that are cheap and utilise inferior parts. Cheaper brake pads use metal flakes that can drag along rotors, causing squeaking noises.

2. Grinding Brake Noises

Such as the effect of nails scratching across a blackboard surface, so does the quivering effect of grinding brake noise. This is a sign you should IMMEDIATELY STOP and have your vehicle inspected by a licensed and trained mechanic. Grinding brake noises mean weaker stopping power and that the pads have excessively worn out to the point where metal to metal contact is occurring.

3. Thumping Brake Noises

Thumping brake noises are least common, however, are a headache nevertheless. Thumping brake noises often indicate that brake drums have warped over time. This may be due to foreign objects entering the car's braking system, or sudden changes in temperatures that may have warped the metal.

If your car is exhibiting any strange or funny brake noises, it's time you rang the mobile mechanic experts from Stouch Auto and Mechanical. Servicing all of Brisbane's southside, Stouch Auto and Mechanical are on-hand to help ensure your car's brake system is operating smoothly. Call us today on 1300 568 603.
