i apologize in advance, but i've never owned a respectable car in my youth. all beaters that no work went into until absolutely necessary.
my brakes have recently began squealing and im wondering what the appropriate course of action is.
1. do i need new pads? or rotors as well? (no indication from the sensors yet)
2. i'm assuming that yellow shit all over my rotors is caked on brake dust... what's the best way to remove it?
3. how much will i be spending taking it to the dealer or should i look into a independent garage?
appreciate any and all help, fellas. thank you.
edit: oops, i thought i was in the general forum. moderator move this for me please.
