How Brake Pads Function

Brake pads are a vital component of your vehicle's overall braking system. Brake pads are composed to two elements known as the shoe and the lining. As a car owner, you need to understand the basics about how brake pads work.

When you apply the brakes on your car, the brake pads press into the rotor. When that pressure is applied, friction is developed which results in the wheel slowing down, decreasing the speed of the vehicle in the process. Bear in mind that brake pads do wear over time. Indeed, if you fail to obtain proper brake service, the pads will wear down faster.
