Advice #04: All the Basics you need to know about Brake Pads
Damaged Brake Pads can ruin rotors and brake calipers, which will reduce the performance of your brakes
Brake pads can cost between ₹1,300 and ₹6,100. However, garages may charge ₹800 or more to replace it. You want to complete this maintenance job on time, because if the brake pads wear less than 1/8 of an inch, they can damage the rotors, leading to expensive and complex repairs. It is very easy to replace the brake pads. As the tyres need to be removed, a wrench and jack is required. You will also need a standard set of keys.
Brake pads apply the pressure and friction needed to the brake rotors, which in turn slows the wheels. Brake pads that are worn, or in poor condition can lead to them becoming grooved and cause damage to the rotors and brake calipers, which will reduce the performance of your brakes. Maintaining the responsiveness of your brakes is crucial to ensuring the safety of your car.
The actual brake pad replacement process is as simple as moving the old brake pad and holding the new pad in place using the fasteners provided in the box. The brake pad cover should also include a pack of grease, which is applied to ensure the brakes are properly lubricated and not squeak.
