I'm taking the car in for an oil change and valve adjustment on the weekend, both services are due. I'm curious, however, as to a problem I've been experiencing with my brakes. Not very often, but every once in a while, they'll squeal. Not just a squeak but that full-fledged metal on metal scream I know all so well that means my pads are on their way out. Only thing is, it barely ever does it. Did it once today in a parking lot outside a grocery store braking VERY SOFTLY at below 20km/h. Didn't re-occur. Normal driving does not bring on the noise. Only very soft application of the pedal in combination with slow speeds seems to provoke the noise, and at that, only at random intervals.
Which makes me wonder: are the pads on the way out, do you think? Or is it just dust or something odd in my brakes? It'll get inspected on Saturday, just curious as to everyone else's experiences.
