When to Change Your Brake Pads
You count on your brake pads to do a lot for you and your vehicle. Your brake pads are the essential parts that rub against the brake rotor to slow and safely stop your vehicle. Over time, they eventually wear down. When your brake pads are worn too much, they will not stop your vehicle as well, and as the friction material is worn away the metal parts of the pad are exposed and create squealing and other noises. In the worst case scenario, you may even hear or feel grinding of the metal to metal parts.
Installing a new set of brake pads will restore your vehicles lost stopping power, and replacing them on time will prevent major brake rotor damage as well.
At Quality Tune Up Shops, our team of certified technicians can inspect your vehicles critical braking system components, and let you know if that squeal is something serious or simply brake dust that needs to be cleaned off. Either way, you will have the peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle will be ready for you when you need it.
Stop by your neighborhood Quality Tune Up Shop location today to get your vehicles brakes inspected. You will be glad that you did.
