How Do Brake Pads Work?

Your brake system relies on a few different parts to react instantly so that you slow down right away. Disc brake systems are the most popular and use a combination of brake pads and rotors to slow down your tires. Rotors attach to your wheels, and when pressure is applied to the brake pads, it presses on the rotors to slow down your wheels, effectively stopping your car. However, when your brake pads wear down enough, you will need to replace them in order to stay away from dangerous driving situations.

If you notice any sounds coming from your brake pads such as screeching or squealing, then your pads may have worn down to wear they no longer will stop your car safely. Disc brake systems should stop your car promptly. Otherwise, you could get yourself in an accident.

You can get your brakes checked very quickly and for less by booking a service appointment at Palmery Motors.
