For many drivers, you mindlessly press the brakes when you need to slow down, never giving this system a second thought, until it becomes much harder to slow down and time to get new brake pads. These brake pads are essential because they give your brake the friction it needs to come to a stop. As they wear down, your brakes come closer to wearing onto metal, which could cause a hard stop or keep you from stopping completely.
During a brake pad replacement service, a technician will need to lift your vehicle and remove the tires, so they can access the brakes. At that time, they will remove the old brake pads and inspect the brake system to look for any leaks or other damage.
Once they have inspected the system, they will then add new brake pads and put your tires back on. Before releasing your car back to you, they will test the new brake pads and ensure that your system is operating properly. If the brake pads do not feel as they should, the technician will take the car back and check the position of the brake pads.
Brake pads are critical when being replaced because they are supposed to fit snugly onto the brakes. It is the best practice to have a certified technician perform this service. Many times, those who attempt this replacement at home do not put the new pads on properly, which can be dangerous for them when driving.
If they are not properly placed, the brakes are not able to stop as they should, and could cause an accident where you or others on the road are harmed. Your brake system is the biggest safety system installed in your vehicle, so it is critical to have it serviced properly.
