Why Are My Brakes Shaking/Squeaking?

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors

There are a few different reasons brakes might shake or squeak as you’re driving around Anderson. If you’re asking, “why are my brakes shaking/squeaking?” it’s best to have a professional like one of the ones at our service center check your vehicle for you. Until then, here are some of the possible reasons for why your brakes are acting up. Contact us if you have any questions. 

Possible Reason 1: Warped Brake Rotors

To stop your car, your brake system presses a brake pad against a brake rotor. With time, these brake rotors can wear down or warp, which will cause your car to shake when you brake on Fishers streets. This is because the brake pads are slipping on the rotor as they pass over the warped surface. If you have warped brake rotors, you’ll feel the shaking in your brake pedal. 

Possible Reason 2: Worn Brake Pads

Your brake pads can also wear down. Most brake pads are designed to make a loud squeaking sound when they’re close to being entirely worn out. If they’re damaged or warped, they may also create vibrations. Thankfully, our service technicians can easily replace brake pads, which should be done as soon as possible. 

Possible Reason 3: Problems with Suspension and Alignment

If your vehicle vibrates or shakes when braking during a turn on a Carmel street, it could be a problem with either your suspension or the alignment of your vehicle. Be sure to let your technician know if this is the case, as it will help them diagnose the problem more quickly. If dirt or dust gets into your suspension components, they can also wear out which will cause the vibrations.
