Genuine Brake Pads



What do they do?

  • When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, the caliper clamps the brake pads against each side of the brake rotor, creating friction and slowing your vehicle down.
  • Brake pads must create the proper amount of friction to deliver smooth stopping performance with a minimum of noise while operating under the harshest conditions.


When to service?

  • Brake service should be performed as required according to environmental/usage conditions. This will help reduce premature wear and abnormal brake noise during brake application.
  • If brakes drag, pull, pulsate or produce abnormal noise, see your dealer immediately.

Why service them?

  • Brake pads are a critical part of your braking system.
  • Pads are designed to wear with use and the rate of wear depends on usage and loads
  • Constant exposure to the elements may result in rust build-up, which can cause brake dragging, pulling, pulsating and/or abnormal noise.
  • Regular lubrication and cleaning of braking system components helps ensure proper function and reduce premature wear.
  • Provides smooth braking while minimizing rotor wear.
