What Do a Car's Brake Pads Do?

Your car's brakes work in a similar way to bicycle brakes. Like bicycle brakes, the pads that are used to stop your car wear down over time. Let the San Leandro Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM service experts help repair or replace your brake pads.

When you step on the brake pedal, a pneumatic cylinder actuates to clamp the brake pads down onto rotors attached to your car's wheels. The friction this causes slows your car down to a stop. The more force is used, the harder the stop. The brake pads are made of a material softer than the rotors. As they wear away, screws are exposed that squeak. That lets you know it's time for your brakes to be serviced.

Bring your car to our service center in San Leandro, CA to have them inspected. We have a team of skilled automotive technicians who are ready to take care of any repairs your car may need.
