When your car brakes (pads, linings, shoes) are almost worn out, metallic tabs will create a squealing noise when the brakes are applied to alert you that the brake linings are due for replacement. Heed the warning. If you ignore the warnings long enough, you can do costly damage to the rotors, drums and other components. This will likely lead to an unpleasant auto brake repair bill.
Even with regular replacement of the linings, some additional service is typically required over the long haul. The surfaces of drums and discs wear unevenly in normal use and eventually need to be remachined or replaced to work properly.
