Disc Brake Repair
Disc brakes feature brake pads that are attached to a caliper that presses the pads against the rotor to slow and stop the wheels. This action continually grinds the brake pads until eventually they make a squealing noise that indicates they are worn out. Sometimes rotors may also warp or crack. Your brake calipers, bearings or seals may also wear out and need replacement.
Drum Brake Repair
Drum brakes feature components that are housed inside a drum which rotates with the wheel. Brake shoes push against the inside of the drum each time you step on the brake pedal, causing the wheels to slow and stop. Just like disc brakes, brake shoes wear with use as the shoes press on the drum as you brake. A squealing or grinding sound when braking is a telltale sign of worn brake shoes.
