Changing brake pads is a crucial part of routine maintenance for your vehicle. Each pad presses against a rotor, and the friction generated by your pads and rotors brings your car to a stop. This friction also wears on the surface of your pads, reducing your brake pad thickness. Worn brake pads struggle to stop your car, and they can even damage your rotors. Put a stop to damage down the road with new brake pads from AutoZone. If you're not sure how, check out this guide to changing brake pads
The side of the pad is covered with what is called the friction surface. The friction surface is made from materials like ceramic and carbon fiber which can absorb high amounts of heat and have a high friction coefficient. This allows the pads to convert rotational energy from the rotor into heat energy, which is absorbed by the pads and wears them out over time.Signs of bad brake pads?
Signs of bad brake pads include squealing, pulsing in the brake pedal, and a dash warning light. Any of these symptoms should be addressed immediately with an inspection of your vehicle’s brake system to ensure that you can stop safely. If you’re inspecting brake pads, look for a smooth, level friction surface. A friction surface that is not level will not make consistent contact with the rotor, costing you stopping power.What types of brake pads does AutoZone carry?
