Brake Pad Replacement

Brake pad replacement is a vital service that must be completed at regular intervals. Your vehicle’s brake calipers use these brake pads to grab the brake discs, which stops your vehicle. As every car owner should know, brake pads will wear down over time. When they are starting to get worn, they need to be replaced. Brake pad replacement is a quick and easy job for our certified technicians, but it would be difficult and possibly dangerous for you to attempt to do this yourself. Read on to learn why getting your brake pads replaced at our service center is so important.


Why Brake Pad Replacement is Important

Brake pad replacement is one of the most vital routine maintenance services. This is because your vehicle’s brakes will eventually stop working properly if you do not get the brake pads replaced in a timely manner. This may result in damage to your brake discs or calipers. It is also quite dangerous to drive on worn brake pads.

Front Brake Pads Are Replaced at the Same Time

Front brake pads may be a different size than rear brake pads. Usually, the front brake pads are bigger because cars usually have bigger front brake calipers. This is because your vehicle’s front brakes must do most of the work. Front brake pads may wear faster than rear brake pads. However, they should be replaced at the same time to keep your vehicle’s brakes balanced.

When You Need Brake Pad Inspection & Replacement

It is difficult to say precisely when you need brake pad inspection and replacement. The timing may vary depending on what kind of vehicle you drive, your driving style, and even the type of brake pads on your vehicle. All you have to do is follow your vehicle’s service schedule and our certified technicians will inspect your brake pads to see if they need to be replaced.
