What Rear Brake Pad Replacement Does
Our factory-trained mechanics remove all four wheels and fully inspect your car’s brake system. We check the brake pads for thickness and wear patterns. If they are near their service limit, we replace the brake pads on both wheels on the same axle. If the brake pads on one front wheel need replacement, we put new ones on the brakes on both front wheels
. That ensures all wheels have about the same expected life in their new brake pads. We also inspect the rotors for damage. We can turn them to restore a smooth stopping surface if they are scratched up or warped. Or we can put new ones on if they are beyond repair. We also make sure you have good calipers, a properly working master cylinder, and replace the brake fluid.
Why Your Brake Pads Wear Out
Brake pads are designed to wear out very slowly while ensuring safe stopping power. The friction material wears away gradually instead of damaging the hardened steel brake rotors. If you ignore the brake pads, they will wear down to just the metal backing plates. Once that happens, you will hear loud metallic scraping sounds whenever you use your brakes. That is the sound of your rotors suffering damage from the worn-out brake pads. A fast and affordable brake pad replacement service will correct the problem and ensure safe stopping.
