Experts told about the reasons for the squeaking of brakes, which can be caused not only by worn pads. It is necessary to take into account the incompatibility of the materials of the discs and brake elements, the presence of lubrication, and natural wear in the mechanism.
In order to determine the causes of squeaking brakes before a trip to the service station, it is necessary to learn how to identify the cause of the malfunction. If the car is new, the pads vibrate when they are pressed against the brake disc, while a slight creak is quite possible.
In this case, you need to install pads to reduce the resonance. The new pads are covered with a special layer that can provoke a creak. Sometimes, when braking, such sounds are caused by the fact that the ratio of materials in the discs and pads is different. Brakes also creak when heated or cooled sharply, we are talking about a temperature difference.
Sometimes there is a jamming of the caliper cylinders due to a small amount of lubrication. Due to its absence in the mechanisms of the braking system, creaking is also possible. When driving off-road, sand, debris and fine gravel can get into the system. These particles are sometimes detected between the disc and the pads.
When water gets into the brake system, it provokes corrosion, as a result, creaking is also heard. Sounds can be caused by pads made of low-quality material, the same is possible in case of violation of the geometry of the protective screen. Sometimes there is a jamming of the caliper cylinders due to a small amount of lubrication.
