Understanding How Brake Pads Work

Brake pads are an integral part of a vehicle's braking system. Like many people, you may realize brake pads are part of the braking system but not have a clear understanding what they actually do.

In essential terms, brake pads are components of the overall braking system that push into the brake motor itself. When that occurs, friction is created that slows down the movement of the vehicle. Brake pads are composed of two elements. First, there is a metal element known as the show. Second, there is lining in the show that is what makes direct physical contact with the rotor.

If you've questions about your brake system or if your car is in need of service, the team at Steingold Volvo Cars stands ready to assist. Located in Pawtucket, we can schedule a service appointment for you any time that is convenient for you.
