Pads & Shoes - What you need to know
  • If the pad depth is less than 3/32 of an inch, replace soon.
  • If less then 2/32 of an inch, Replace immediately. They will soon be damaging the drum or rotor.
  • If you hear a high pitched screeching noise, this could be the wear sensor on some pads indicating the pads need to be replaced soon.
  • If you hear a much deeper metal on metal scraping sound, this probably indicates the pad backing plate is grinding on the rotor and both will probably need to be replaced.
  • Indicator light comes on. Some cars come with a wear indicator that tells you the pads need to be replaced.
Wear patterns and what they mean...
Pattern
Even wear between inners & outers: smooth wear surface in friction material
Only one side worn down in the pair
Grooves in the surface of the friction material
Indicates
Normal wear
Caliper or caliper piston hanging up: caliper slide not functioning properly
Rotors should be turned or replaced.

Brake PadsBrake Shoes >
Brake pads convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy by use of "friction". When a brake pad is heated up in contact with a rotor, it starts to transfer small amounts of friction material to the rotor. The brake rotor (both now with friction material on), will then "stick" to each other to provide stopping power. The friction of the pad against the rotor is responsible for the majority of stopping power.
Brake Pads >Brake Shoes
Brake shoes convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy by use of "friction". When a brake shoe is heated up in contact with a drum, it starts to transfer small amounts of friction material to the drum. The brake drum (both now with friction material on), will then "stick" to each other to provide stopping power. The friction of the shoe against the drum is responsible for the majority of stopping power.
