Genuine Brake Pads in Dearborn, MI

Every driver understands the importance of their vehicle’s rear and front brakes, simply because you use them every time you drive. What every driver may not fully understand is how the brakes are a system of multiple components, some of which are designed to wear down over time and need replacement. Brake pads, for example, only work because they aren’t made of metal but a softer material that gently pushes against the rotors to slow and stop the car.

Because of the way they’re made, brake pads inherently wear down over time. As such, they were also designed to be easily replaced. If they were steel, they would grind on the rotor causing more damage and would make horrible noises when in use. Steel against steel further wouldn’t be able to properly grip the parts together and stop the vehicle efficiently.

The fact is, brake pads just have to be replaced because they wouldn’t work if they were made of a material that wasn’t designed to wear down, and once they wear down the car isn’t safe to drive.

What Happens if your Brake Pads Aren’t Replaced

Although this doesn’t always work as intended, the first thing you should notice when the brake pads are worn enough to need replacement is a screeching sound. This is part of the design, essentially a metal wire placed inside the pad at the proper depth to rub against the rotor so you know it’s time to replace the pads before they completely wear away.

If you don’t have the brake pads replaced promptly, the remaining pad will wear away, leaving the metal pad mount to rub directly on the wheel rotor. At that point, it’s going to cause much worse damage which requires lengthy and expensive repairs. More importantly, there is the danger the brakes won’t work at all and you’ll be unable to stop the car.

Finding Reputable Brake Pad Replacement in Dearborn

Brake pads aren’t difficult to replace, and some people who have a mechanical aptitude and the right tools can, in fact, replace them themselves. However, it’s usually a better idea to take the car to a reputable dealership such as LaFontaine Kia in Dearborn, MI and serving the surrounding areas of Detroit, Westland, Taylor, Novi, and Wayne County. Technicians at our Kia service center are trained to work on the car and know what signs of other damage might need to be addressed and will conduct a proper inspection for such issues while replacing the brake pads.
