WHAT ARE BRAKE PADS?

Brake pads are hands down the most commonly replaced brake component. Without brake pads, your vehicle would have trouble coming to a stop. Brake pads work on the concept of friction. Imagine holding a vinyl record from spinning on your record player. Brake pads are the 'fingers' holding your wheel from turning. 

The brake pads have friction material. This friction material is the part of the brake pad which faces the rotors. When new brake pads are installed, they usually come with around 12mm to 13mm thick friction material. Eventually, the friction material will wear away and you'll need to replace the pads. The rule of thumb is once the brake pads reach 3mm, it's time to replace them.

CAN I DRIVE WITH WORN OUT BRAKE PADS?

We highly recommend not driving your vehicle if you're experiencing issues with your brake pads. The more worn out your brake pads are, the less stopping power your vehicle ultimately has. In the event of an emergency stop, a vehicle with worn out brake pads may not be able to prevent the vehicle from stopping, causing an accident.

WHAT ARE SYMPTOMS OF BAD BRAKE PADS?

When your brake pads need to be replaced you may experience one or more of the following:

  • Squealing - If you're experiencing a high pitch squealing sound when applying the brakes, this normally indicates your brake pads are on their last leg or the quality of the brake pad is sub par. When the mechanical wear indicator starts to contact the brake rotors, you'll hear a squealing noise every time you apply the brakes.

  • Excessive Brake Dust - Some brake pads emit a lot of brake dust. This is the reddish colored dust you see on your wheels. It doesn't necessarily mean you need to replace your brake pads but most consider it an eye sore.

  • Grinding - If you're hearing a grinding noise when applying the brakes, you almost certainly need brake pads & rotors. The grinding noise comes from the backing of the brake pad grinding on the rotor. All of the friction material as worn away which is why the grinding is happening.

MY BRAKES SQUEAL. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Brake squeal is usually caused by worn out brake pads. Brake pads come equipped with mechanical wear indicators. Once the brake pads reach a predetermined level, the mechanical indicator will start touch the brake rotors and make a squealing sound. Excessive brake dust or debris caught between the brake pads and the rotors may also cause brake squeal.
