Front Brake Pad Replacement Service

New Front Brake Pads

Brake pads need to be replaced when they wear down to about 1 mm. A 12 mm brake pad can wear all the way down to 1mm and gives indications that it's time to change them at around 3mm. Stay safe while you're driving by having properly maintained brake pads. Squealing noise when you apply the brakes is caused by the high-frequency vibration of drums, metal rotors, and brake pad backing plates. Too much corrosion can form over time on non-contact and the outer perimeter areas of rotors and drums is the prime cause because the rust loosens and it is not as dense. Jittery stopping, or shimmy when stopping or using the brakes, is another indication that you should have your brakes checked. Any vibration from the front rotors is a sign that they need to be looked at and potentially replaced. Brake pads are used to slow the rotation of the wheels by creating friction. It can be made from hardened organic materials or composite ceramics. Ceramic brake pads are more expensive but last longer. The lifespan of brakes can be anywhere from 25,000 miles to 75,000 miles.

Signs Your Brake Pads Need To Be Replaced

Brake pads have sensors that become exposed and make contact with the disc when they wear down to about 3 mm. This will cause the squealing noise, which means that it's time to change your brakes. It also may trigger an electronic sensor that lights up on your dashboard. Another sign you may need to service your brakes is if there is a clicking noise on the wheels when depressing or using the brakes. If a dark fluid is leaking, you should get your brakes checked to see if it is the brake fluid. If you feel any type of loss of control of the car while you are braking, this can also mean that your brakes need to be checked.
