Help - My Brakes are Whining!

You may refer to it differently, but there will come a time when your brakes will start whining. At first it might not be noticeable. You slow down approaching a stop light or intersection and there it is…a high pitched whine that lasts as long as your foot is pressing the brake pedal. You might think you accidently ran over a cat, but it’s your brakes trying to tell you something. Human nature being what it is, when you let your foot off the brakes and the whining stops, you ignore it. Bad move!! Stop Whining Already You won’t be the first person to ignore whiny brakes. Typically, this is a sure sign of worn out brake pads. In layman’s terms, the brake pads press against the inside of the wheel and slow down or stop the vehicle. Brake pads are a not overly-complicated component of your car and makes for an easy brake repair in Rockville, MD. There are many so-called “professionals” out there that will try to hoodwink you into thinking that whiny brakes are caused by lack of lubrication. And, in fact, there are several brands of lubricant that may very well reduce the whining of your brakes, much like WD40 or similar products can lubricate a rusty hinge or loosen up a bolt or screw. But that seems to work against the concept of what the brakes on your car are supposed to do…which is to stop the vehicle. And the reality is that if you don’t devote your attention to proper brake repair in Rockville, MD, your vehicle will not be able to stop in a timely manner and may potentially injure you, your passengers and even innocent by-standers. What to Do When your brakes start to whine, bring your car in to be serviced. Your brakes and pads have a shelf-life. Maybe it’s not time yet to swap them out, but it’s better safe than sorry. You can’t go wrong by talking to your mechanic.
