Brakes and Wheel Bearings
Brakes, Bearings, and Hubs
Squealing brakes could be perfectly normal, or often times indicate a bigger problem. Screeching, screaming, or grinding brakes or wheel bearings always indicate a problem that needs to be addressed before it becomes dangerous to operate your vehicle on the open road. Solving the problem could be as simple as replacing your brake pads and having the rotors machined. However, these issues sometimes stem from the master cylinder, brake lines, or brake calipers. There could even be an issue with the hub that attaches your wheel to the chassis.
