You first noticed the squeaking from your brakes when you were driving home after the Pelicans game the other evening. Now you're wondering if you should take your car to Twin Tire Auto Care to have their certified New Orleans auto repair experts look at your brakes.
You're right to be concerned. Brakes are one of the most - if not THE most - important safety features on your car so any time you have an indication that things might not be right is a time to consult a New Orleans auto repair expert.
But, as cars.com says, squeaking brakes might not be an indication that something is serious. It could be a function of the weather - rain, snow, etc.
"If you're lucky, the squealing (or squeaking) noise that your brakes make when you first drive your car in the morning, particularly after rain or snow, is just surface rust being scraped off the rotors by the pads the first few times you apply the brake pedal, or the result of moisture and dirt that collects on the rotors, including from condensation caused by high humidity. If it goes away after a few brake applications, no worries," cars.com says.
The time to really worry is if the sound does NOT go away. That could mean you have worn or loose parts. Diagnosing the problem, cars.com says, "will require a brake inspection to diagnose, and may require cleaning, lubrication or adjustment, and possibly new parts. Most brake noise is caused by worn or loose parts. ... Because there are several possibilities, and because brakes are a crucial safety feature, it is best to have a pro diagnose noise."
