Brake Pad Replacement

What are Brake Pads? Brake pads convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy by friction. When a brake pad is heated up by coming into contact with either a drum or rotor, it starts to transfer small amounts of friction material to the disc or pad (that is the reason a brake disk has a dull grey). The brake rotor and disk (both now with friction material on), will then "stick" to each other to provide stopping power. The friction of the pad against the disk is however responsible for the majority of stopping power.
