In order for your vehicle to actually slow to a stop, your braking system requires good brake pads. When you press on your brake pedal, the brake caliper squeezes your brake pads against your rotors which creates friction to slow your vehicle down. Because your brake pads are always in use, they need to be routinely maintained and replaced to keep your vehicle stopping safely. The time frame for replacement varies due to a number of factors, such as how often you drive your vehicle and if you drive your vehicle primarily on the highway or in town (which has frequent stops). There are a number of ways to tell if your brake pads are in need of servicing, some more noticeable than others. When brake pads get worn down, one of the first signs you'll have is when you start to hear a screech when you apply the brakes. Many modern brake pads have a small piece of metal in the pad itself to create that screech to let you know it's time to change them. You may also notice your brakes almost sticking when you try to slow or stop, and this is a sign that things may be getting bad for your pads. Failure to keep your brake pads maintained can cause intense damage to your brake calipers and even the rotors, so when it's time to replace the brake pads, look no further than here at Genuine BMW Mini Parts.
