Some people describe this as their brakes are “floating” or “fading.” This is a sign of a leak somewhere in your brake system – either an air leak in the brake hose, or your brakes are leaking brake fluid. This is an extremely dangerous situation, and you should not drive if you notice your brakes behaving in this way.
When your brake pads cannot get an even grip on your rotors, it will cause the brakes to shake or push back at your foot. This generally means your rotors will need to be replaced. It can be dangerous to drive in these conditions, so we recommend getting this looked at as soon as possible.
If you hear a high pitched screeching noise when you brake, this means that your pads are wearing down. If the screeching sound has been replaced by a louder grinding sound, this means that your brake pads have worn all the way through and are actually grinding against your rotors. If your brakes make any unusual noises, bring them in to be repaired right away.
