A vehicle’s brake pads are fundamental to slowing down your car and keeping yourself safe when driving. As they naturally wear down, it’s important to perform maintenance to keep them in tip top condition.
Whilst brake pads will always be checked as part of vehicle checks by mechanics, they can be changed manually by the driver. Be sure to take absolute care when performing maintenance and request assistance if necessary. Check our range of brake pads and protective gloves at CarParts4Less if you are in need of the correct gear before you start.
Equipment You Need To Change Your Brake Pads:
- Mechanic’s gloves
- Jack and jack stands
- Lug wrench
- C- clamp
- Adjustable wrench
Step 1 – Remove The Wheels
Elevate your car with a car jack on a flat surface and suspend with axle stands. Remove the wheels where you need to change the brake pads.
