General Inspection – Squealing brakes

Posted by:

THE EFFECT
Everybody notices the squealing brakes.  It could be an indication of very low brakes or it just might be a simple rectification of the pad material.

THINGS TO LOOK FOR
Squealing brakes certainly need to be checked if they are low.

COST
If the brakes are low then the cost to replace a set of disc or drum brakes is around $100.00-$200.00 depending on what is required at the time.  If the brakes are okay and they are not squealing it may cost around $45.00 to put anti squeal solution on and to prevent the squealing from occurring again.  This may need a repeat application as some squealing brakes are hard to rectify.
