Default Squeaky Brakes

Hey, I have a93 1.8L SOHC

Recently my brakes or something on the front left side of my car started squeaking or a similar higher pitched noise when im driving around. It only happens when im not pushing the brakes in, but its quite an annoyance. I havnet got around to looking at it but wondered if anyone herehad any ideas.

Thanks

brake pads. You better change them before they get worse and start to mess up the rotors. Basically there is a small metal peice on the pad that when they get low will start rubbing against the rotor serving as a warning to change them.

And its something you can do yourself with very minimal experience. You dont even need to remove the rotors. All you need is a socket wrench with the right sizes, and then i would get a good size c-clamp as that will make the job 100 times easier. You just remove the two bolts in the back of the caliper that hold it in place, pull out the pads, and then take an old brake pad and place it in front of the cylinder and then use the c-clamp to compress the cylinder back to flush and put the new pads in and your good to go. Shouldnt take more than a 1/2 hour per side
