checking rear brake pads

supposedly my indy replaced my rear brake pads about 1k miles ago on my '04 kgt. now lately i'm hearing some sounds from the rear brakes that sound like the pads are gone. do i have to drop the wheel to look for worn pads? what's involved in checking them?

I believe you can check them by removing the black plastic inspection cover at the top, a blade screwdriver works well.

screwdriver and mirror

Yup, pop off the plastic cover and use a mirror to get a better look.
