How Do Brake Pads Work?

Since brake pads are required to have such resilience, they are created out of metals, such as steel, graphite, iron, and copper that are mixed together. In order to withstand the heat from the energy used to stop a moving vehicle, they must consist of a combination of elements to form a surface that’s both durable and cost effective.

You send brake fluid through the lines of the brake system each time your foot presses on the brake pedal. Because fluid can't be compressed, it provides the force necessary to eventually cause the action of the pads and rotor pressing together to stop your car.

When you hear grinding or squealing as you apply your brakes, it is likely time to have them serviced. Stop in to Palm Springs Kia when you’re in Cathedral City. We are here to answer questions and help you with your vehicle's needs.
