The Importance of Brake Pads on Your Vehicle

Brake pads are a crucial part of your braking system; you must know how they work so that you stay on top of servicing them.

Braking Basics

There are three parts to the disc brake system; discs, pads and calipers. The brake disc spins along with the wheel with two brake pads sitting on each side waiting to be squeezed into the disc by the caliper when the driver presses on the brakes. Brake pads don't last forever because every time you press on the brakes a tiny bit of brake pad material is shaved off. It is usually wise to replace the brakes and the rotors together when servicing the brakes but not always completely necessary.
