Service Your Rear Brakes at Garden Grove Nissan
Brake pads are a big part of your safety when driving and they do help to make the necessary friction to stop your car when you need it to. While driving, your brake pads wear down and thin out which means that you may need to have them changed out more often based on how you drive and how often you press on the brake pedal.
The Purpose of Brake Pads
Brake pads are a piece of rubber that is sandwiched between the caliper and the rotor that is attached to each wheel to help create the extra friction that is needed to stop a moving car. As you drive and use your brakes the calipers are going to clamp down on the rotors and the brake pads to create friction and to stop the car. When the brake pads thin out and are used, they are not going to be able to create enough friction to stop the car. As your brake pads thin out they are also going to increase the contact between the calipers and the rotors. If your brake pads are very thinned out the calipers are going to come in contact with the rotors which means that they can warp the rotors which means that they are going to have to be changed out as well. With rear-drive cars, the rear brake pads will need to be replaced as well as your front brake pads to ensure your vehicle stops when you need it to.
How Often Should You Change out Brake Pads?
With average driving, brake pads are not going to need to be changed super often. If you are driving a great deal you should schedule service to change your brakes more often. Changing your brake pads is necessary to make your car stop when you press the brake. Brake pads need to be changed out on a mileage-based time table and your technician can help you to make sure that your brakes are going to stop when you need them to.
