Your brake pads take a lot of wear from heat and friction, and eventually, they become so worn that they need to be replaced. No matter if it’s your front brake pads, rear brake pads, or even all of your brake pads, we here at Raceway Chevrolet of Bethlehem can maintain your braking system. Our certified technicians meet the highest standards of quality service, so you can trust that your vehicle’s brakes will be safe and effective when you get your brake pads replaced here.
The easiest way to tell that you need a brake pad replacement is the loud squealing noise that your pads make when they’re getting thin. That sound is not cause for immediate concern because it’s created by a metal shim inside the pad that alerts you to the need for new brake pads. You can also get your brake pads inspected, or even take advantage of one of our complimentary multi-point inspections that we provide during every service visit. Our experts can help you know exactly when it’s time to change out your brake pads.
Your brakes work by pressing a friction material against a metal cylinder on the wheel called a rotor. The friction of the material on the rotor slows the rotor, thereby slowing your wheel. However, this also causes heat that can burn away the friction material on the pad. A brake pad exchange involves removing the wheel, pivoting out the calipers (which hold the brake pad), and taking off the old pad and clips and replacing them with a new pad and clips. This both strengthens your braking power and provides you with peace of mind regarding your brakes.
