When you're on the road, you rely on the factory braking system to help you stop your vehicle. Brake pads are an important part of the system.
When you depress the brake pedal, this causes the master brake cylinder to deliver brake fluid to your brake calipers. The pressure of the fluid forces the caliper to clamp to the disc. This creates the drag needed to slow down and eventually stop the wheel.
However, both the calipers and rotors are made of metal. If they come into direct contact, they can cause serious damage - including warping. The brake pads sit on the caliper and act as a cushioning contact to protect the caliper and rotor from damage.
There are four types of brake pads. Organic brake pads are great for everyday driving because they are affordable and reliable. Metal brake pads feel stronger and more heat resistant. Ceramic brake pads are quieter than other types of pads and are generally more reliable in wet conditions. Finally, carbon fiber brake pads are more heat resistant and stronger. They also provide the best stopping power.
Over time, however, even the highest quality brake pads can wear down due to the extreme heat and pressure that comes with braking.
Signs of this include:
Braking noise or vibrating brakes
It takes more time and distance to stop completely
Your ABS or brake warning light comes on
Choose Original OEM Brake Pads
If you don't notice any of these signs, remember that your brake pads are not designed to last forever. Depending on your driving style and traffic conditions, your brake pads can reliably travel from 30,000 to 70,000 miles. When you do need to replace worn brake pads, make sure to replace them in groups, either front or rear. Also make sure to choose the best one for your model. OEM Brake Pads are brake pads designed specifically for your vehicle and come with an unmatched compatibility guarantee. Find yours in our online auto parts inventory.
It is very important to check the braking system regularly. Checking the brake pads is one of the key steps in the process. Brake pads stop your vehicle from rubbing when you press the brake pedal. All brake pads wear out eventually. That's why it's important to inspect and replace worn brake pads during regular maintenance. If you hear a screeching or squealing sound when you hit the brakes, this may indicate that your brake pads need to be replaced. If you find that it takes longer to stop than before, this may also indicate that it is time to replace the brake pads.
