Most modern passenger vehicles have disc brakes on at least the front wheels, and brake pads are part of disc brakes. When you step on the brake pedal, hydraulic brake fluid amplifies and transfers that force, causing calipers to squeeze together. The brake pads are connected to these calipers, and it’s the rotor (or disc) that they press against. While the backing of the brake pads are metal, there’s also a lining that’s made from other, softer materials. These are built to stand up to friction, and they also wear down faster than metal. When the brake pad lining wears down, you’ll need to have the front brake pads replaced before metal grinds against metal, damaging the braking system.
Though there’s not an exact time at which your front brake pads will be replaced, there are a few good ways to tell when they need replacement. The more dangerous way to tell is to listen for a squealing sound when you brake. This is due to built-in wear indicators telling you that your vehicle’s brake pad lining is dangerously low. The wiser way to go about it is to bring your vehicle to Stephen Wade Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for regular brake inspections. If our technicians see that your brake pads are low, they’ll let you know so you can have them replaced.
Cutting corners is never a good idea, but it’s especially unfavorable when your safety is on the line. At Stephen Wade Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we use only OEM MOPAR brake pads. In addition, our technicians are trained and certified by the factory and will be sure to provide service that is both efficient and skilled.
