Brake Pads Replacement
MOBILE BRAKE PADS REPLACEMENT AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
Some cars have brake-pad sensors that inform the driver of worn brake pads via a light in the dashboard or a message shown upon startup. Some brake systems call attention to themselves by squealing or screeching when they get too thin; while unpleasant, this is usually harmless. It’s caused by a metal scraper attached to the pads that serves as a warning alarm. If the noise is less of a screech and more of a grumbling, grinding sound, the pads at one or all of the wheels may be gone altogether, and further use of the brakes can cause serious damage to the rotors. This is not a sound you want to hear, and if you do you must take your vehicle to a brake shop immediately. To book one of our mechanics, just contact us via phone call or our online survey. Your vehicle will be running like a champ again before you know it.
WHAT IS BRAKE PADS REPLACEMENT?
Brake pads are a key part of your vehicle’s brake system; they sit between your brake shoe and your brake drum. Without functioning brake pads, other elements of your vehicle, such as the discs, rotors, and calipers will begin to wear away. Maintaining effective brake pads is important to avoiding very pricey repairs as well as unsafe driving conditions. That’s why it’s important to be able to identify when to replace your vehicle’s brake pads.
HOW IS BRAKE PADS REPLACEMENT DONE?
- Remove the wheel
- Unbolt the caliper
- Remove the old brake pads
- Compressing the brake piston
- Re-Install the brake caliper
Generally, brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles.
