In today’s world, every driver understands the brake pads have to be replaced occasionally, although not everybody fully understands what the process entails or when it needs to be performed.
Brake pads are designed to absorb the energy of a wheel’s movement and disperse it while slowing or stopping the car. They take a lot of pressure and force in the process, which slowly wears them away over time.
Brake pads have a small piece of metal integrated into their design which will scratch against the wheel hub, causing a nuisance sound when the rubber parts are worn down and expose the metal. This design allows the pads to continue working while alerting the driver to the need for replacement. Newer model vehicles have additional sensors that indicate in the dashboard the pads are close to wearing out and need to be serviced.
Over time, brake pads can either wear out or wear unevenly, causing less responsive braking pressure. Your vehicle cab takes on a strange pulsating feeling when braking, indicating front and rear brakes are no longer properly aligned for efficient stopping power.
A good driver may recognize the feeling and intuitively begin braking earlier than usual, however, the car wasn’t designed to run in such a way and it is a potential safety issue.
Ultimately, if the need new brake pads and are ignoring the warning signs, they will eventually wear away altogether. At that point, there is no appropriate padding and applying brakes results in bare metal grinding against bare metal. That doesn’t work to safely stop the car! Worse yet, it can destroy your wheels, wheel hubs, and other parts of the brake system.
As with most car repairs and maintenance services, there are local mechanics proficient at the task. However, a dealer has better access to particular resources and is better equipped to conduct the service according to manufacturer recommendations. Bryden Motors in Beloit, WI, for example, uses the parts designed for each specific vehicle and has certified technicians who conduct the repairs.
