The Function and Maintenance of Brake Pads

The brakes on your vehicle are of vital importance. One of the parts that help your car to stop are the brake pads. Global Imports BMW in Atlanta, GA wants you to know more about what brake pads do, and how they need to be maintained.

Your vehicle has a brake rotor that spins around with the wheel. When you depress the brake, the calipers press the brake into the rotor. The brake pads are what absorb the friction and allow the vehicle to stop.

Brake pads should normally be replaced every 50,000 miles. Some will have to be replaced sooner. Some brake pads will last much longer depending on how you drive your vehicle. If you hear a squealing noise when you press the brake pedal, that is a signal that the pads need to be replaced. If you hear a metal on metal grinding noise, get your brakes serviced as soon as possible.
