Question about 2003 Kia Rio
The sound is created as soon as I press the brake pedal. while reducing the marsh also creats such noice.
From your brief description it would appear you need to have your brakes serviced immeadiatly and I would suggest NOT using the vehicle until you do.
The screech is the sound made by Metal to Metal contact in the braking system and could be very dangerous, the Brakes have Disc pads which when applied push together against a disc/rotor and therefore slows your vehicle down as you apply them.
Over time these pads wear out and the surface then becomes Metal, so now when you apply the brakes you are in fact wearing through the discs/rotors as well and reducing severely the braking efficiency/safety of your vehicle.
Continuing to do so will damage these components so much that the whole braking system will fail or need to be replaced.
I would be very very cautious if you intend driving this vehicle.
I hope this helps, please remember to rate my effort?
