Brake pads usually need to be replaced about 35,000 to 65,000 kilometres. How long your brake pads last depends on how and where you drive.

Use replacement brake pads that meet manufacturer's recommendation. Quick Lane at Brunelle Ford’s Brake Repair Centre uses high-quality Motorcraft brake pads and replacement parts. They are installed by Ford-trained technicians.

Squeaks, squeals or grinding noises may be a sign that your brake pads or rotors need replacement. Replacing brake pads can help avoid more expensive damage to rotors, the metal disc that plays a crucial role in stopping your vehicle.

Brake systems in cars and trucks consist of brake pads or brake shoes, brake drums or rotors, brake lines connecting to the brake pedal, a master cylinder, calipers and wheel cylinders. Vehicles may have all disc brakes or a combination of disc brakes and drum brakes.

The disc type of brake uses a piston in the calipers that pushes brake pads against the plate-sized rotor. In contrast, drum brakes are bowl-shaped and springs push brake pads against the inside of the bowl. Drum brakes usually are found on the rear of trucks or sedans.

Brake fluid and brake lines must be maintained for brake systems to operate properly. We use manufacturer recommended brake fluid. Oil patches under your vehicle may indicate a leak, and your vehicle should be inspected immediately.

If your brake pedal is spongy or can be pressed to the floorboard, get your vehicle brake system checked immediately.

Subtle signs indicate need for brake system inspection

Subtle signs indicate need for brake system inspection

You are dropping off your kids at school and slow down your car as you approach a crowded turnout. As you push on the brake pedal your car responds slowly, and you quickly press harder to get your vehicle to stop.

That delayed response and spongy feel may indicate a more serious problem--air or moisture in your vehicle's brake lines. Inspection by a brake expert is critical to prevent possible brake failure.
