Brakes and Brake Pads, Kansas City, Missouri

Why are brakes important?

The brake pad is one of the most important components in your braking system; it is the part directly responsible for stopping your car. Brake repair and brake service is essential for your vehicle to run.

How does the brake system on the work?

Brake pads are a part of the disc braking system, which is a caliper situated around the front wheels of your vehicle (most of a car’s stopping force comes from the front tires). The caliper is fitted with brake pads. When you press the brake pedal, the caliper squeezes the brake pads against the wheel and the resulting friction slows your vehicle to a stop.

What are the signs of needing new brakes?

  • Loss of grip when braking
  • The feeling of your car pulling left or right when braking
  • A sloppy, soft or low brake pedal
  • Shuddering through your steering wheel when braking
  • Squeals, screeches and high pitched noises when breaking
  • Your brake system warning light flashes
  • Your car takes longer to stop than normal

When should you replace the brake pads?

The friction wears away at the brake pad, which is an easily replaceable part. Over time, the brake pads erode away with use and must be periodically replaced. Generally, brake pads may need to be replaced every 20,000 to 60,000 miles. Come into Conklin Fangman to get your brakes inspected, brake repaired, and brakes serviced!
