When you press the brake pedal to stop or slow your car, brake pads rub against the brake rotors and the resulting friction is what forces the speed change. Friction and heat also cause your Toyota Corolla brake pads
to wear down, and they'll need to be replaced eventually. A brake job is straightforward and won't break the bank, especially with Hot Deals from AutoZone.
How Different Types of Brake Pads Perform
The disc brake design incorporates a spinning brake rotor and a stationary caliper fitted with a pair of brake pads. When the brake pedal is pressed, the caliper closes against the rotor's surface and squeezes brake pads against it.
On a brake pad, friction material generates the required friction. Ceramic brake pads stop your car quietly on a dime and have long-lasting wear, and they're the most popular style for 2016 Corolla brake pad replacement. Semi-metallic brakes may be an option that also stop your car aggressively, but the metal content squeals more on application. Organic brake pads are sometimes available, providing a low-cost alternative that's quiet and has gentler stops, but they will wear down sooner.
Signs of Worn-Out Brake Pads & Rotors
You'll hear and feel when brake pads are no longer working at their best. Worn-out brake pads will eventually make horrible squealing or grinding noises, and your car will take longer to stop or pull to one side. Bad brake rotors will often cause steering wheel vibration or brake pedal pulsation when stopping. On an inspection, brake pads with less than 1/4" remaining friction material should be replaced.
How much does it cost to replace brake pads
on your Corolla? Depending on the type you choose, expect a set of brake pads to be around $30 to $65.
