The brake pad is one of the components of a disk brake. When the brakes are pressed, the brake pad comes in contact with the brake rotor. Friction between the pad and the rotor causes the vehicle to slow down and eventually stop.
Break pad wear leads to a decrease in braking performance; in the worst-cost scenario, the brakes fail completely.
- Guideline for periodic inspection (whichever is earlier).
- Every time the vehicle covers a distance of 15,000km or every 1 year.
