What Are Brake Pads?

Even those with little or no knowledge about automobile mechanics know how vital the brake system is. All the brake parts must work properly, or else a car might not stop. Driving on worn brake pads undermines safety, but what are these parts?

Brake pads support a reduction in friction when the caliper touches the rotor upon pressing down on the brake pedal. Metal-on-metal friction would wear parts down quickly and present safety hazards. So, the brake pads perform an important role. They can't do so forever, though. Brake pads do wear down at some point.

The sound of worn brake pads sends out an alarm to get things checked. You don't have to wait that long, though. Requesting a brake inspection during an oil change could help you catch things early.

When the time comes to get brake work performed, call the service department at Precision Acura Of Princeton. Our team is ready to help out.
