You might know that you'll begin to hear a squeaking noise if your brakes are going bad, but do you know why you hear it and what will happen if you ignore the sound. Most people know that they need to have their brakes done on a regular basis, but at Jaguar Cherry Hill, we want you to know more about the details.

When you start to hear a squeaking, that means that the brake caliper is rubbing directly on the rotor. The brake pad, which normally prevents the caliper and rotor from touching, is worn down.

If you wait too long to replace the brake pad and rotor, you'll eventually cause damage to other parts of the vehicle. The effectiveness of your brakes can also be affected if you don't replace the rotors because they get warped over time.
