Brake pads are the workhorse of the braking system. They are meant to squeeze the rotor and slow down the vehicle. Because of this, brake pads take a lot of abuse, reaching temperatures of 400 degrees or more. Therefore its important to replace them when they wear out to ensure proper stopping performance.
The brake caliper is the device that squeezes the brake pads against the rotor to help slow down your vehicle. While these devices can usually last the lifetime of your vehicle, a malfunctioning caliper should be addressed quickly and correctly. Symptoms such as uneven braking, and noise when brakes are not applies can indicate a problem with the calipers.
The brake rotor is the smooth metallic surface that the brake pads squeeze against. They too can reach temperatures of 400 degrees or more. Because of their constant abuse, they should be checked and replaced as necessary. Symptoms of a faulty rotor will include wheel shake when braking and reduced stopping performance.
While disc brakes are common, some vehicles may use drum brakes for the rear wheels. If that’s the case, Automotive Plus can still help you out. Just like disc brakes, drum brakes need to be replaced as they wear out and their performance decreases.
