Brake pads an integral part of stopping your vehicle

Have you ever wondered what really happens inside your vehicle when you press the brake pedal to stop it? There are many parts that play an integral role in the stopping process, none more important than brake pads.

Braking requires friction to stop your vehicle's wheels from turning. The component in your braking system that applies this friction is the brake pads. When you press the brake pedal, the brake pads compress the brake rotors, causing the friction that stops the car. Think about how often you stop when driving around in Johnston, then think about how much wear and tear that must take on the brake pads. That's why they tend to wear out and have to be replaced more often than other parts.

When you bring your car to Audi Des Moines for service, we will inspect your brake pads and replace them for you if they are overly worn.
