With disc brakes, brakes pad rub on a disc to slow the wheels, so it’s normal that they wear out eventually. Replacing pads is a straightforward repair, so if you’re hearing unusual sounds when you brake, or if your brake pedal is feeling squishy or too hard, bring your vehicle in to your local NAPA AUTOPRO service centre and let us perform a disc brake inspection for you. Your technician can inspect all the brake components and tell you if it’s time to replace the pads, the disc or any other component.
That’s important because if you have worn out pads, metal brake components can grind on the rotors, damaging it enough that it needs to be resurfaced or replaced. Regular disc inspections keep your brakes working safely, on top of helping you avoid costly brake component repairs in the future.
