Your Brake Pads Are Critical To The Braking System

Your brakes are one of the most important systems on your vehicle, and because they work so hard, they are naturally going to suffer from some of the worst wear and tear. Eventually, components of the system are going to wear out and need to be replaced. When this happens, it is important to have a basic understanding of how it all works so that you know what you're up against.

Your brake pads are going to be the most common thing that needs replacing. These are what actually cause the vehicle to stop. When you press the brake pedal brake fluid is forced through the system from the master cylinder. When this happens the influx of fluid forces the calipers to compress. This is where your pads reside. The calipers compressing cause the pads to make contact with the rotors and slow your vehicle to a stop.

So if you are in need of new brake pads or have any questions in general about your braking system, then call or visit our service center here at Porsche Monterey in Seaside, CA.
