Your vehicle’s braking system plays a very important role in keep you safe. Therefore, it’s especially important to maintain your braking system properly to keep it working in good order.
In this issue, Bendix shares with The Tyreman the signs of brake pad wear and uneven pad wear as well as ways to maintain the braking system properly. The braking system employs a number of components and one of the most important items are the brake pads. Brake Pads sit inside brake callipers and clamp down onto the rotor, acting as a source of friction and providing the driver with stopping power.
Brake pads fall under the consumable category when it comes to car parts. They wear down over time and eventually need replacing. Because of this, Bendix points out that it’s important to keep an eye on the amount of friction material that remains on your brake pads to keep both you and your family safe on the roads.
“The rate of wear depends on a wide range of variables. Everything from choice of brake pad, driving style, to the condition of your brake rotors or if your brake callipers are working as they’re supposed to. There are a few signs to look out for that indicate that your brake pads are reaching the end of their service life or wearing unevenly.”
