Exclamation Seeking Advice : Brake Problem S-CLASS

Hi board, I am new to benzworld. I have a 2001 S430 and everytime i step on the brakes there is a sharp squeeking noise. This may obviously be the brake pads, but I am wondering if anyone can give me suggestions on if I should get them done at a dealership or somewhere else. I want to avoid paying $1000+

Any advice would help thanks again,

Welcome a-board!!!

Take it to your dealer. It won't cost you $1k. In fact it could be free if it is just a minor tweak required.

Don't believe everything you think

Did the car show any "worn brake pad light"? By "stepping on the brakes" I understand braking heavily, squeeking normally is more of a problem when braking lightly, now looks more like the pads were totally worn out. If there is no warning light, then perhaps a minor tweak would be sufficient, like putting some specific grease on the pads (rear and sides).
