Depending on the year, make and model of your car, it may require between 4 – 8 brake pads. When you press down on the brake pedal, your car’s master cylinder releases pressurized brake fluid to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, this causes friction that slows down your vehicle. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads erode and become hinner. If the thickness of your brake pads is less than a quarter of an inch, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive and how aggressively or conservatively you drive, brake pads usually last between 35,000 – 40,000 kilometers. Some vehicles (e.g. BMW’s, Mercedes’, etc) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system to notify drivers when to have their brake pads replaced. In these vehicles, the brake sensors will be replaced along with the brake pad during servicing.
A rotor is a part of a vehicle’s braking system; it is shaped like a dinner plate. The design of the rotor allows the heat produced by this process to be evenly dispersed throughout the braking system so it does not overheat.
