What Are Brake Pads All About?
Brake pads consist of a metal backing plate with friction material bonded to it. Two brake pads are fitted into a caliper at each wheel, and the rotor's flat surface spins between them. When you press the pedal, the friction material grabs against the rotor's face, creating the friction to stop your car.
Toyota Camry brake pads
can be made of different types of friction material. Many are ceramic brake pads that last a long time and stop your car quickly and quietly. Semi-metallic brake pads offer similar performance but aren't as quiet. And organic brake pads have a softer pedal feel with quiet stops but wear out faster.
Signs Of Bad Brake Pads & Rotors
When brakes wear out, they exhibit symptoms to indicate attention is required. Worn-out brake pads often make an obnoxious squealing or grinding noise when the brakes are applied, and your stopping distance tends to get longer and longer. Bad brake rotors will sometimes cause brake pedal pulsation or a steering wheel shimmy. And if an inspection reveals your brake pads are at 1/4" thick or less, they should be replaced.
