Finding a mechanic for Brake Pad replacement

Brake pads play a significant role in your car’s stopping ability. That’s why, when the time comes for replacement, you’ll want to find someone who can do the job right. Brake pads can be changed by a mobile mechanic at your home or office, or by taking your car to a shop. The following tips will help you select a mechanic you can trust.

How to find a mobile mechanic for Brake Pad replacement?

Select a certified professional

The new car smell may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean your car doesn’t deserve the best – even if it’s seen better days. You don’t want just anyone popping the hood and poking around. Look for a certified mechanic who has experience working with your car’s make and model. Also, keep in mind, there are many different areas a technician can specialize in. You’ll want to choose someone who has A5 Brakes certification.

Do they have a good reputation?

Recommendations, either via word-of-mouth or internet reviews, are a great way to find a stellar mechanic. If a repair business has been around for a long time and has a devoted following, you can bet they operate with intelligence and integrity.

Do they seem professional?

Repair in your driveway should be a professional experience. You’ll know you’re in good hands when a mechanic, in a clean uniform, arrives in a company vehicle equipped with tools and car parts to complete the job. Time to raise your standards.

Don't be left guessing about quality

Brake pad quality varies, as does the caliber of the work being performed. Always ask about warranties when you schedule an appointment. Warranties offer quality assurance and protect you in the rare case that something goes wrong with your repair.

How to find a local repair shop for Brake Pad replacement?

Look for a certified mechanic

Check to make sure the shop is working with only the best, aka ASE certified professionals. In particular, you’ll want to ask whether the mechanic assigned to your car has A5 Brake certification. And if the shop doesn’t have the right credentials, move on.

Reputation is everything

The best shops have a loyal clientele – and a packed schedule to prove it. Online recommendations or word-of-mouth suggestions will help you find a mechanic with an outstanding reputation.

Are they helpful?

A good shop will take the time to explain the brake work your car needs in detail. They will also be honest about pricing (including giving you an estimate for parts and labor) and won’t try to add on any unnecessary repairs.

Do they offer a warranty?

Brake repair is far too important to gamble with. Ask about warranty coverage when you schedule your appointment. A sound warranty provides peace of mind that you’re getting OEM-grade brake pads and expert installation.

What are Brake Pads?

So, what exactly are brake pads? You’re in luck, because they’re actually pretty simple. So here’s the easy breakdown: When you press on the brake pedal, the master cylinder sends brake fluid to the brake caliper. That pressure causes the calipers to force the brake pads to clamp down on the rotors, which wrestles the wheels to a stop.

Symptoms of failing Brake Pads

Uncomfortable Noises

Ahh, fingernails on a chalkboard. Everyone’s favorite noise, right?...right? Oh. That’s right. That’s a horrible noise, and if you have the displeasure of listening to it every time you brake, it’s probably because your brake pads are wearing thin, subjecting you to the glorious symphony of metal on metal friction. If you hear a less horrendous, but still bad screeching noise, that’s your brake pads telling you they’re almost dead. Literally, it’s them telling you, so listen up. Brake pads have built-in wear indicators, which will make noise when they’re nearing their final days.

Your car is pulsating

Hey, massage chairs are awesome, but everything has its place. If your steering wheel or brake pedal is shaking, well, your brake pads are acting out.

Low brake fluid level

The more your brake pads are worn, the further the brake fluid has to travel. The further the brake fluid travels, the less it shows up in its happy home, the brake fluid reservoir. A low fluid level usually means worn out pads.

Brake warning light

Hey, genius. Your brake warning light illuminating means there might be something about your brakes that you need warning about.

How urgent is replacing your Brake Pads?

You can probably guess the answer to this one: Very worn out brake pads will reduce the efficacy of the brakes, and no one is a good enough driver to safely operate a car with limited brakes. Plus, driving with worn out brake pads can cause further damage to other parts of the brake system. So really, it’s pay now, or pay a whole lot more later.
