Usually, your braking system can fail because of several factors like normal wear or when the rotors are warped. You see, cars usually have disc brakes which are typically made of metallic compound or hard organic material. Your car stops when the brake pads contact the rotor, which is, on the other hand, made of cast iron. This contact produces friction, thus, creating heat and stopping the car.
The brake pads are designed to wear down over time, how fast the wear down is up to you and your driving habits. The brake pads rub against the rotors every time you stop your vehicle, wearing the pads down. Today’s braking systems have warning signs to let you know when it’s time for new brake pads. Thin metal tabs will rub on the rotors making a high pitched squeaking sound. This is the first clue you need your brakes serviced.
If you ignore the squeaking sound and let your brake pads wear completely down they will eventually destroy your rotors. Once you hear the grinding sound of metal on metal when applying pressure to your brakes, you know your rotors are shot. This can be very dangerous and can endanger the lives of you and others. Although there are now thicker, harder brake pads available on the market, still proper maintenance and care for your braking system by a reliable and very knowledgeable mechanic like PACC Automotive is still the best precaution for unwanted and expensive problems.
