2007 Mazda MX5 Repair Question
Should my brakes squeek after the pads have been replaced?
it seems like i had heard that that sometimes happens shortly after a brake job, but eventually goes away. did they botch the brake job, or do i just need to "ride it out"?
no, they did not botch it at all. the brakes work fine or you would have said something.
the metallics in the pads will cause squealing. squealing is a normal noise under certain conditions and all manufacturers state that in the cards they insert in the brake boxes.
there are materials like ceramic that lessen the noises to almost nothing but once again depends on driving habits and conditions.
