Rancho Cucamonga Brake Service FAQs
Why are my brakes making a squealing noise?
Obnoxious noises coming from your brakes usually indicate that there is something that needs to be corrected or repaired. When you start to hear a squealing or grinding noise from your brakes, it is typically caused by one of two things:
- Damage to the brake pads or rotors: Excess wear and tear, or damage to the brake pads or rotors, can cause metal-on-metal contact between the rotors and the brake calipers. This could cause a loud grinding noise and further damage to your braking system.
- A stuck object in the brake calipers: An object, like a pebble or piece of debris, could be stuck in the brake calipers causing unnecessary friction. A professional mechanic would need to remove the object to remedy this.
What parts make up a braking system?
A braking system is composed of numerous components that all work together to rapidly bring your vehicle to a smooth stop. A braking system may include:
- Rotors (or drums)
- Shoes (drum system only)
- Brake lines and hoses
- Wheel cylinders
- Master cylinder
- Parking brake cables
- Electrical components
- Various hardware items (springs, brackets, caliper pins, etc.)
Because there are several moving elements involved in a braking system, keeping your brake service up to date is an important part of your regular vehicle maintenance. The crew at Ramona Tire & Service Centers in Rancho Cucamonga is here to help. We can handle your regular brake service and keep your brake pads, calipers, and all other components working just as they should.
