How to change brake pads: discover how to change brake pads on your own.
There are many important details to remember when replacing brake pads. Brake pads and calipers were introduced on vehicles in 1968. After 1978, almost all vehicles came with front disc brakes.
The general tools you’ll need for this job are listed in this article. Please consult a repair manual for the specifics of a complete brake job on your vehicle. Always leave one side of the brakes assembled for reference.
Advance Auto Parts carries the best brake pads for your vehicle, along with a complete selection of other quality auto parts.
Why you should change brake pads:
Your disc brake rotors and pads handle up to 75% of your vehicle’s breaking needs. Braking power may be severely reduced if brake pads are worn thin. Worn brake pads are not only dangerous, but will cause expensive rotor damage if neglected.
Never put off brake maintenance. Brake pads normally last between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driving conditions. Inspect your disc brake pads regularly and replace if needed with quality brake parts from Advance Auto Parts.
