Brake Pads: Essential for Bringing Your Car to a Stop

Your braking system is easily one of the most important systems on your vehicle. And because your braking system experiences so much stress and wear and tear, you will eventually have to replace some of the components. It is important to have at least a basic understanding of how those components work together so that you know what you are dealing with.

The brake pads are what actually stop your vehicle, so those are going to be what wear down the fastest. The pads are held in the calipers, which squeeze together and cause the pads to make contact with the rotors when you press the brake pedal. This forces brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes when you depress the pedal.

If you think that your vehicle is ready for a new set of brake pads or if you have any questions about your braking system in general, then call or visit the service experts here at Land Rover Austin today.
