Front Brake Pads

Everything you need to know about brake pads with Mister-Auto

Brake pads are a component of disc brakes. They are held in place by the caliper which pushes them down either side of the brake disc—bringing the vehicle to a stop. Because they’re subject to high levels of friction, they will wear down over time. You can tell if you need new pads by inspecting them; if they are less than 1/4 inch thick, you will need to buy new brake pads. Other indications include a vibration in the brake pedal, as well as screeching or grinding sounds. However, not all pads make sufficient noise when they are worn down. In this case the pad can wear down to the metal backing plate. In addition to being dangerous, this can also damage your brake disc—forcing you to replace that too. So, it’s important to regularly check the condition of your brake pads.

At Mister-Auto, we know how important it is to have your vehicle road ready. That’s why we’ve made it easy to buy new brake pads online. In addition to speedy delivery, included in our service is tracking and free returns.

That’s why we’re one of the leading market places in Europe for auto parts.

How to change your brake pads

Changing your brake pads doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s easy to do, and it doesn’t require specialist tools. Most cars have disc brakes located at the front. Because the majority of pressure is placed on these, they will need to be changed more often. Before you start, it’s important to make sure that you buy brake pads that fit your car. You can do this online and for free at Mister-Auto using our quick and easy search feature. All you have to do is enter a few details and we’ll find the exact model you need—and then deliver it to you.

  1. While you leave your vehicle to cool down, loosen the lug nuts of the front two wheels. You should then raise the vehicle off the ground using a jack. Once you have done this, fully remove the lug nuts and then the wheel—it should pull out straight towards you. This will reveal the brake assembly.

  2. Locate and unbolt the caliper. This clamps the brake pads onto the brake disc using hydraulic pressure. Depending on your vehicle model, these are normally held in place with two or four bolts. In most cases, removing the lower bolts is enough. Before you replace them, it’s a good idea to clean and grease them. It’s also important to pay attention as the caliper may be pressurized, causing it to flip out at high speed—make sure you are positioned to the side of it.

  3. Once you’ve done this, the caliper should pivot up to reveal the brake pads. You can now check the thickness and condition of them to confirm that they need changing. It’s also a good chance to change your brake fluid.

  4. Remove the old brake pads. This can be done by sliding them out of their retainer. They are typically held in place with a clip. When you buy brake pads, they also come with a new set of retaining clips and a lubricant to prevent squeaking. Switch the old clips with the new ones, making sure to match them exactly. Then apply some lubricant to them.

  5. Insert the new brake pads. On the reverse side of the pads is a thin metal surface, often known as a shim. This can be attached or loose. You can apply some of the lubricant to the metal shims, as well as the contact clips at the outer edge of the pad. This will also prevent noise. However, be careful not to get any lubricant on the inside of the new pads as this will render them useless. You can then slide the new brake pads in. Often the fit is a bit tighter as new pads are thicker.

  6. Replace the caliper. Slide it back over the brake disc and tighten the slider bolts. Remount the wheel and tighten the lug nuts.

Before you drive your car you will want to be sure that the brake pads are seated correctly. To do this, while the car is in neutral, press the brake 20–25 times. After this, test the brake pads out by driving the car in a quiet street and braking—start at 5mph and gradually increase this up to 40mph. Remember that your new brakes may squeak a bit at first, and may also have a higher engagement point.
