Replacing Brake Pads
Replacing Brake Pads
Replacing Brake Pads is a regular mechanical event here at Pellon Autocentre, in Halifax UK. For this reason, we always inspect the state of our customers brake pads. Especially, when we are fitting new tyres. Accordingly, we inspect the brake pads any time that we can and whenever we remove the cars wheels. This is because brake pads are extremely important. Of course, they are the part of the car that stops you when the brake pedal is applied.
Brake pads are a great invention. They are very efficient and reliable and of course stop your car. Because we are always checking our customers brake pads, then we feel that we are contributing to road safety. in fact on many occasions, we are thanked by our customers for showing them their worn out pads. It is very rare that a driver does not have the brakes replaced.

Thus, we are thanked many times for pointing the problem out to drivers. This video is also useful to drivers that like to do their own car repairs. As the owner of the business, then I would not recommend repairing your own brake. However, many drivers are capable of this and I have no problems with drivers doing their own repairs. Brake pads are fairly easy to change.
