What are common signs of brake wear?

There are several noticeable signs that the brakes in a vehicle may be showing signs of wearing. One of the most obvious signs of brake wear is a brake pedal with a spongy or low feeling. This usually indicates that air is present in the hydraulic system. There may be an imbalance in the brake system when the red brake-warning light appears. The presence of an amber brake-warning light is usually related to a problem with the ABS system. Brake pad or shoe replacement is usually required when a continuous squealing or grinding sound is heard.
