Are there any warning signs of Brake Failure?

There are a few early warning signs, both audible and physical that will warn you of upcoming service. These warning signs, however, cannot be heard over your radio or air conditioner. Meaning, they can be easy to miss if you are not paying attention. The first, warning sign is a high-pitched squealing noise that will sound when you press the brakes. This sound is caused by small wear indicator within your braking system. The indicator is revealed when your pads are worn a little more than half way, to give you advanced notice of necessary replacement. Another warning sign is hearing a grinding noise when braking. This means you have worn completely through your pads and are in danger of damaging your rotors. If this happens, your brake repair service can become costly so make sure to check your brake pad thickness regularly. Simply maintaining and listening to your vehicle can save you valuable time and money. Maintaining your brakes, performing fluid flushes, and replacing your brake pads, will help avoid costly repairs. These repairs can include caliper replacement, abs modules, or rotors.
