A rear brake pad replacement is a fairly routine job, but it can be complicated for an inexperienced mechanic. This makes brake pad replacement in Hazelwood an excellent opportunity to experience the stellar Honda service at Bommarito Honda Superstore. Whether you know you need new brake pads or simply need an inspection to determine when a replacement may be necessary, we can help you start – and stop – motoring safely again.
In a rear brake pad replacement, our certified technicians remove the existing rear brake pads from your vehicle and replace them with a genuine original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, pair of pads. While we are replacing the pads, we will also inspect the other components of your braking system, such as the brake calipers and brake rotors, or discs.
Your braking system has a pretty tough job. When you think about it, it is taking the pressure from one tiny foot tap – or even a slam – and turning it into the ability to stop your heavy vehicle in a very small period and a short distance. This type of pressure inevitably takes a toll on the brake pad. As the pads wear thin with each use, you will gradually experience a decline in braking performance. If the problem persists for too long, you could damage the other components of the braking system.
The front brake pads are the workhorse in most vehicles, so they are larger to accommodate the increased strain by necessity. Despite the size discrepancy between the front and rear brakes, the wearing cycles can gradually shift with the front brake pads requiring replacement more frequently than the rear. When you need a replacement, we always use OEM Honda brake pads to ensure optimal performance.
Brake pad replacements become more common starting at the 30,000-mile mark though some pads may last longer, particularly if you drive in areas with less need for regular braking. Drivers in high-traffic situations with routine stops may find 30,000 miles is the maximum, particularly for front brakes. Make a brake inspection a routine part of your maintenance visits starting at your first 10,000 miles and approximately every 10,000 miles thereafter to maintain peak performance.
