What do they do?
When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, the caliper clamps the brake pads against each side of the brake rotor, creating friction and slowing your vehicle down.
Brake pads must create the proper amount of friction to deliver smooth stopping performance with a minimum of noise while operating under the harshest conditions.
Why service them?
Brake pads are a critical part of your braking system.
Pads are designed to wear with use and the rate of wear depends on usage and loads.
Constant exposure to the elements may result in rust build-up, which can cause brake dragging, pulling, pulsating and/or abnormal noise.
Regular lubrication and cleaning of braking system components helps ensure proper function and reduce premature wear.
When to service?
Brake service should be performed according to the manufacturer’s required maintenance schedule. This will help reduce premature wear and abnormal brake noise during brake application.
If brakes drag, pull, pulsate or produce abnormal noise, see your dealer immediately.
