The Function of Brake Pads

Brake pads include a steel plate that has been coated with a friction producing material. When you are braking, the friction producing material, under heavy pressure, comes into contact with the brake making the car slow down. Over time, the material on the brake pad wears down. This is when they need to be replaced. If not taken care of, the brake rotors can be damaged.

When to Schedule a Replacement

Many newer vehicles are equipped with an alert system to warn you when the brake pads need replacing. When the alert is illuminated, it generally means that the pads are worn down to 2 mm approximately. High pitched squealing noise when you press on the brake pedal is another sign the pads need replacing. If unchecked, it will become a grinding noise. When that happens, your vehicle is no longer safe to drive. As the brake pads begin the wear, you may also notice a vibration while driving. The shaking can be felt from either the brake pedal or the steering wheel. Lastly, if the car pulls to one side while braking, its time to get it checked out. Many technicians recommend having the brake pads checked every 10,000 miles.

Taking Care of Your Brakes

When you bring your vehicle in, our certified technicians first visually inspect the braking system. This includes assessing the condition of the rotors, pads and steel brakes for any signs of damage. If the brake pads need to be replaced, they do it and lubricate the whole braking system. This includes the caliper sliding pins. They may also recommend that the brake fluid be topped off or replaced.
