The Mercedes Benz SL65 brake pads are one of the primary safety components of your car. By compressing against the rotors attached to the wheels, these pads force your vehicle to slow down. If you hear a noise, feel a vibration, or notice the brake pedal going too low, then it's time to do some troubleshooting.
The squealing you might hear is a high-pitched noise usually caused by vibration. This brake noise can occur when the brake pads are loose or are missing their anti-rattle clips. Other known causes of squealing brakes include:
If you step on the brake pedal and feel a vibration, then there might be something wrong with the brake pads. Check if they have been contaminated with oil or any other substance, as this can cause the components to vibrate while they grip the brake rotors. To fix this, you will have to replace your brake pads.
If you hit the brakes and you feel like the pedal is going too far down before you decelerate, then the brake pads might be worn. Your pads should never wear long enough to cause the brake pedal to feel low-usually, the brakes should squeal before this happens. But if you notice that you are already pushing your brake pedal too far down, then you need to replace your brake pads as soon as possible.
