These brake pads were so easy to install and the braking feels like a cloud - soft and fluffy! :) If you are frustrated by squeaky wheels than this is the product for you. This was my second time installing brake pads on a car and my first time on an Altima and it was quick and easy. As a female, I needed help from my dad to put back the cylinder, but other than that I can do it on my own. If I can do it, anyone can do it.

Product Not As Advertised!

The photo on the website shows the metal clips that the brake pads move against. These clips are not included with the brakes. I believe this is false advertising and returned the product. ...Read complete review

The photo on the website shows the metal clips that the brake pads move against. These clips are not included with the brakes. I believe this is false advertising and returned the product. It does look like a quality product, it is just not as advertised. I checked with multiple stores and none included the clips shown. Disappointing

Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

These ceramic pads for the front disc brakes are an excellent value for the money and they provide very quiet, low dust, sure stopping performance. Before leaving the store where I purchased these pads I opened the box and sure enough everything as pictured was included (2 inner pads, 2 outer pads, 2 upper retaining clips, 2 lower retaining clips, and a packet of organic grease). Installation was straightforward and everything fit exactly as it should with absolutely no modifications/adjustments necessary. My vehicle is a 2000 Nissan Maxima SE with aftermarket drilled and slotted brake rotors. I am very happy with this product.

  • Q:

    The pads I bought (wearever platinum professional) has this Pad Wear Sensors clips (one for each pad). Does the Pad Wear Sensors must fit tight. I can install them but doesn't seem to be very tight like others I have used that kind of snap in place. The way I see to install them is kind of sliding over the pin in the corner but it does't click at all. I'm worry they could come loose so I'm not sure whether to use them or not.

      Hi Edwin! Since you didn't mention the specific vehicle, it's hard to tell for sure. To give you the correct information I would need the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
