How do you know there is something wrong with a Brake Pad?
When the car does not slow down as well as would usually be the case.
When there is a squeaking or grinding noise to be heard when you brake.
When the brake warning light on the car’s dashboard is on.
When the ‘Low Brake Pad’ warning light is on (only some cars have this).
When the brake pedal is in a lower position than usual.
When the car vibrates under braking.
When the car pulls to one side.
When should you consider replacing a Brake Pad?
The pads will wear depending on your driving style and the environment where you drive (in the city or in the countryside). If the brake pads have worn out prematurely or if you are experiencing trouble under braking, it is advisable to seek the help of an expert to investigate the problem and, if necessary, replace the pads as soon as possible.
Driving with brakes that do not function properly can, of course, lead to dangerous situations on the road. You should always replace either both the front pads, both the rear pads or all the pads together to ensure balanced brakes.
Importantly, servicing the brake pads is key to ensure that the brake system works correctly and effectively. Always service the brake pads according to the guidelines set out by your car’s manufacturer.
What happens during a Brake Pad replacement?
Mechanic will inspect the brake system.
Mechanic will establish how many brake pads need to be replaced.
If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake pads.
Mechanic will inspect the brake system and, if deemed safe, will test drive the car.
If necessary, the mechanic will make any adjustments to optimise braking.

What Types of Brake Pads are the Best?

Brake pads are in constant use, therefore, they eventually wear out.
Brake pads manufacturers had to design different kinds of brake pads to suit different driving styles, environments, weight and size of a vehicle.
Some brake pads wear out easily while others are long lasting.
Strength and durability of a brake pads determined by material used to make them.
The names of the brake pad type are strongly aligned to the type and nature of materials used.
There are three major categories namely; organic, ceramic and metallic.
Metallic brake pads are further subdivided into low-metallic and semi-metallic.
The organic ones are subdivided into non-asbestos organic (NAO) and non-metallic. Let’s have a look at each of them.
1. Ceramic Brake Pads

If you own a high-performance car, ceramic brake pads should be your first choice.
Just as the high-performance cars, the ceramic brake pads are expensive than their counterparts.
They last longer than other brake pads.
As the name suggests, they are made of ceramic fiber, mixed with non-ferrous metal.
Very high pressures and temperatures are used to bond the material.
The metal filaments produce the friction ability while the ceramic fiber helps to control temperatures when the brake pads are in use.
They produce very little dust and are noiseless.
2. Organic Brake Pads
These are the softest kind of brake pads. They are the least expensive in the market. They also wear out very fast. They also produce a lot of dust. They are less noisy than metallic brake pads.
They are made of organic fiber. This group is further subdivided into Non-metallic brake pads and non-asbestos brake pads.
–Non-Metallic brake pads are made of rubbers, resins, glasses, and metal fibers. They are fitted in low-performance cars with fewer brake needs. Some of these contain asbestos which is a health hazard.
Health complications led to the development of non-asbestos organic brake pads.
–Non-Asbestos brake pads are made of fiber, high-temperature resins, and fillers. However, they do not contain asbestos. They are a better choice since they do not cause health complications from their dust.
3. Metallic Brake pads.
These brake pads are called metallic since they contain a certain percentage of metal. They are tougher than organic brake pads.
They produce a lot of dust and are very noisy.
They are useful on vehicles used on rough terrain and urban centers where a lot of braking activities are needed.
They are expensive than organic brake pads but cheaper than ceramic brake pads.
They are further subdivided into Low-metallic and semi-metallic brake pads
Low metallic brake pads contain copper or steel. It makes the brake pads very noisy.
However, the metal help in heat transfer hence keeping the brake pads cool when braking.
Semi-metallic brake pads contain about 30-60% of metallic material. This makes them more durable as compared to low-metallic brake pads.
However, they do not perform so well in low temperatures. They can be used in high-performance cars, however, they are not highly recommended.
Choosing the Brake pads right for your car

Light compact cars require little braking effort. Therefore, organic brake pads serve the purpose well.
However, you may choose the expensive metallic and ceramic brake pads to reduce the number of brake pad purchases.
Mid-sized cars are much heavier as compared to light-compact cars. Therefore, they require more braking power.
Go for low-metallic brake pads since organic brake pads would not serve them well.
Sports cars move at high speeds. They also require violent braking. Therefore, tougher brake pads such as semi-metallic or ceramic brake pads are recommended.
Trucks and SUVs require heavy duty brake pads. Therefore, ceramic brake pads are the best for this type of vehicle.
Semi-metallic with higher metal percentage can also be used.
