Brake Repair in Clovis, CA
Your brakes are the most important safety feature that vehicle has to offer. With your brakes working properly they help you not only avoid accidents and road hazards, they also allow you to obey even the most basic traffic laws. There is also more to your braking system than just the brake pads. Brake pads are the component that most drivers are familiar with because they are the item that is addressed most often when it comes to your overall braking system.
The brake pads on your vehicle are meant to wear down over time as they protect your rotors from the heat and friction that is a by-product of stopping your vehicle even at low speeds. You might hear a squeak when using your brakes if your brake pads are low. This is because some brake pad come with a metal filament embedded in the brake pad to give off a warning sound when it is time to have them replaced.
