The brakes on your car, truck or SUV are a critical component. When you hit the brakes, you want to know with confidence that you’re going to stop. A brake pad replacement is a necessary service in Topeka, KS. At Briggs Dodge Ram FIAT, our service center offers this replacement service for a number of models, including Dodge Challengers, Ram trucks, FIAT coupes and sedans, and more.
A brake pad replacement means replacing the brake pads that are found between the calipers and the brake plates. These serve as a buffer between two metal parts to avoid too much friction. Over time, the brake pads wear down. As such, you need to schedule a replacement when the pads wear down too dramatically. Many residents throughout Topeka, Lawrence, and St. Marys, KS turn to us at Briggs Dodge Ram FIAT for their service.
You’ll know when you need brake pads because you’ll feel that the brakes are softer than they used to be. Further, you may hear a loud squealing sound when you hit the brakes. This sound is a result of the calipers scratching directly on the brakes. To ensure that you’re able to brake effectively all of the time, you will want to schedule the brake pad replacement periodically. This is often done around 50,000 miles, though it can be as early as 25,000 miles depending on how frequently and how hard you use your brakes.
In the event that you ignore brake pad problems, you may end up replacing more than just brake pads. It can end up being a significant expense because you will need to replace calipers and other parts that have been damaged. Since there are plenty of warning signs when brake pads need to be replaced, you should be able to identify the problem early on. Plus, if you are bringing your Dodge, Ram, or another vehicle in for service regularly, our technicians can remind you when the replacement is needed.
