Why Does My Ford Need Brake Pad Replacement?
Let’s start by taking a closer look at what exactly the brake pads do. Nearly all personal vehicles have at least front disc brakes, and many also have rear disc brakes. In a disc braking system, stepping on the brake pedal makes the brake calipers squeeze closer together. The brake pads are attached to these calipers. When the calipers tighten, the brake pads squeeze against the brake rotors.
The rotors are made of metal, as is the backing of the brake pads. However, to avoid friction damage, the part of the brake pads that comes into contact with the rotor is a lining that’s made from a softer compound. This softer material has been designed to resist friction, but that also means that it will wear down faster. If the brake pad lining wears down too much, it will eventually expose the metal backing, causing damage to your brakes.
How Often Does My Ford Need Its Brake Pads Replaced?
While your vehicle has many services that should be performed at a precise mileage interval, brake pad replacement is not one of these. Instead, you should have your brakes inspected regularly. When our technicians inspect your brakes, they will check the thickness and condition of your brake pads, as well as other brake components.
How Can I Make My Brake Pads Last Longer?
Although all brake pads will wear out with use, there are ways to extend the lifespan of your brake pads. When you brake, try to come to a slower stop rather than slamming on the brakes. You should also be sure that you don’t overload your vehicle, as excess weight wears the brakes down faster.
