Fortunately, the early signs of brake failure are very prominent: squealing or grinding noises when braking and metallic sounding squealing are the most obvious symptoms. Even more pressing is a much quieter problem: a soft brake pedal. Soft brakes sink all the way to the floor and indicate that immediate brake service is needed.
If you’re hearing a metallic squeal when you’re moving, that’s your brake pad letting you know you’re close to the danger point of damaging your rotors. The sound could mean that marks are being made on the rotor. If your car has rear drum brakes, it could also mean that your brake shoe needs lubrication.
