Overview of the Role of Brake Pads

As a car owner, you should have a basic understanding of the various primary components of your vehicle, including the brake system. Key components of the braking system are the brake pads. The operation of the brake pads on your car is based on a fairly simple principle.

Brake pads are composed of two elements. These are the shoe and the lining. When you brake your car, the show presses into the rotor. When that occurs, friction develops which causes the wheel to rotate more slowly and the car to slow down. A brake pad does wear out over time.
