Brake pads are essential for generating the resistance necessary to stop your vehicle. They get clamped by brake calipers into the rotors connected to the wheels. This powerful clamping action causes the high-friction metallic brake pads to wear away. With enough stops, all brake pads wear down and need to be replaced. Front brake pads are positioned at the front axle, handle more weight, friction, and heat. This causes them to require more frequent replacements compared to the rear pads. Font brake pad service takes care of the worn front brake pads by installing brand new pads while getting the most out of the rear pads.
Brake pads should be replaced when they measure 3mm or .1 inch. Newer MINI models equipped with brake pad monitoring will illuminate the dashboard warning indicator when the brake pads need replacement. Older MINI models without brake pad monitoring need routine inspections and the driver’s diligent attention to the eardrum-piercing screech caused when old brake pads have the warning indicator strike the rotor disc. We will assist with brake pad maintenance requirements when you bring your MINI to us for its routine maintenance.
Brake pads that are not replaced wear down until nothing is left but the steel support plate striking the rotor. This not only causes serious damage, but it also comes with brake performance decline. Not replacing worn brake pads ultimately leads to unsafe driving.
MINI owners can schedule their front brake pad replacement service conveniently online or call the service department to schedule appointments. For those finding it difficult to schedule during the week, we offer extended Saturday service hours. While we complete the service, you are welcome to relax in our comfortable waiting area with Free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, magazines, and a complimentary beverage and coffee bar.
