How Do Brake Pads Work?

Regular brake maintenance is important in the safety of your vehicle. Brake pads are usually changed with every brake service because of the function they before in the braking system. When pads wear thin, other problems with the brakes can occur.

Brake pads act as a friction buffer between two essential brake system parts, the rotors and the caliper pistons. Brake calipers are the parts that squeeze spinning rotors when pressure is applied to the brake pedal. Thus, the brake pads are in constant use, which is why they wear out frequently.

Each vehicle takes a specific type of brake pad. Ceramic and semi-metallic pads are the most common. They are also manufactured to fit your particular make and model. When you come in to our service center at Marketplace Motors Inc. in Devils Lake, ND, our technicians will fully inspect your brake system and make sure that the correct pads are installed.
