What Are Front Brake Pads?

Your front brake pads are a critical component of your braking system. These pads sit between your brake drum and the brake shoe, which is the part responsible for clamping down and slowing the rotation of your tires. Without properly functioning front brake pads, other parts of your brake system will begin to prematurely wear away, such as:

  • Calipers
  • Rotors
  • Discs

Having regularly scheduled front brake pad replacements is a preventative step toward avoiding more expensive auto repairs. Most importantly, having a front brake pad replacement is critical to help your vehicle stop and prevent unsafe driving conditions.

Signs You Need Front Brake Pad Replacement in Louisville, KY

Every time you stop your vehicle, you are using your front brake pads and wearing them down. The friction created causes tiny amounts of the protective coating from the pads to wear away. The deterioration will start to accumulate, causing the pads to become thinner and thinner. Eventually, you will need a front brake pad replacement. Here are a few of the top signs you should schedule a front brake pad replacement:

  1. Do you hear screeching or squealing sounds when you press the brakes? This is typically the first sign you should schedule front brake pad replacement. This sound is caused by a tiny metallic indicator embedded in the pads designed to alert you of the need for front brake pad replacement.
  2. Are your brake pads less than .25 inch thick? You can also visually inspect your pads to gain insight if it’s time to have them replaced. If you notice they are thin, it’s a great idea to have an inspection at Bachman Volkswagen in Louisville, Kentucky.
  3. Do you hear a deep metallic growling or grinding? Anytime you hear a deep, rumbling growl coming from your brakes, you should immediately schedule a front brake pad replacement. The sound you hear is due to metal-on-metal contact — calipers and brake discs making contact, which is not a good thing. You almost certainly have completely worn brake pads.
  4. Do you have an indicator light on your dashboard? It’s really easy to overlook those annoying dashboard indicator lights. But if your vehicle is equipped with a low-pad warning system, you shouldn’t ignore it.
