Jason replaced the headlight in my car. Not a major job, but during the work he gave me some great recommendations about how to take care of my car. Jason was right on time, very professional, and knowledgeable. I really appreciated his friendly, positive attitude and his helpful tips. I'll definitely use YourMechanic again and I can recommend Jason highly.

I have never used a mobile mechanic before and working with Russell was a great experience. He was extremely thorough in inspecting the vehicle I was thinking of buying, and very honest. In the end, he spotted problems with the car that I never would have noticed or known to look for. He advised against the purchase and saved me from buying a lemon, which was well worth the cost of the inspection.

All about Brake Pad Replacement

Depending on your car’s brake system, it may use between 4 to 8 brake pads. When you step on the brake pedal, the master cylinder sends fluid under pressure to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, causing friction that slows down the car. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads wear out and become thinner. If the thickness of brake pads is less than 3mm, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive (city driving tends to wear pads out quicker) brake pads usually last between 30,000 to 35,000 miles. Some vehicles (e.g., BMWs) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system. In these vehicles, you will also need to replace the brake sensors as part of the brake pad service.
