Mercedes Benz Brake Pad Set Parts
“Brake, brake, brake!!” your wife yells at you as you almost rear-end the car in front of you. Your Mercedes-Benz comes to a stop just inches short of hitting the brand new Audi in front of you. Your wife is a little shaken up and so are you. You knew your Mercedes brakes were making some noise but did not think it would lead to this diminished of stopping abilities. You know that it is time to get new Mercedes-Benz brake pads.
There are some other signs that signal your Mercedes brake pads need replacement. One sign is a loss of grip when braking. You may experience the car pulling to the left or right when braking, this could indicate that one set of brake pads is more damaged on one side than the other. Other signs include: a sloppy, soft or low brake pedal, shuddering through your steering wheel when braking, squeals, screeches, and high pitched noises when braking, brake system warning light flashes.
The brakes in your Mercedes are one of its main safety qualities. Making sure your brakes are in working condition will be vital to the functioning of your brake system. Your Mercedes brake pads are an important component of your brakes. The brake pads are steel backing plates coated with friction material bound to the surface that faces the brake rotor. Brake pads cause friction by converting kinetic energy into thermal energy. There are two brake pads contained in the brake caliper with their friction surfaces facing the rotor. When the brakes are applied the caliper squeezes the two pads together into the rotor to stop or slow the vehicle. Since a lot of friction is always occurring, your brake pads eventually get worn down.
You have been delaying the replacement of your brake pads but all delaying does is cause more damage. It causes more damage because when your Mercedes-Benz brake pads get worn down all the way they begin to start scratching the brake rotor. This means that you will also need to replace that part of your braking system. Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz brake pads will help prolong the life of your brake pads and your brake rotor.
