Brake Pads Help You Stop Your Vehicle

Your brake system is one of the most critical pieces of equipment on your vehicle, and the workhorse of this system is your brake pads. Your brake pads are what make contact with the rotors to create the friction that brings your vehicle to a stop, so naturally they will see the brunt of the wear and tear during your Cheyenne, WY adventures.

When you press on the brake pedal, the master cylinder forces brake fluid through the system to your calipers. This transfer of force from the brake fluid causes the pistons in the calipers to expand, compressing the set of pads together. They make contact with the rotor, squeezing it until your vehicle slows to a stop. Stopping that much force is no small task, so you will notice the brake pads wear out over time much faster than any other part of your braking system.

If you think you need your brake pads replaced, then bring your car, truck, or SUV to our Nissan parts and service center here at Halladay Nissan, and let us have a look at them for you.
