A number of parts make up the braking system in your Acura vehicle, and you want to make sure you're taking care of them. The braking system is one of the most important safety systems that your vehicle has. It gets used every time you're out on the road and need to bring your car to a stop. A range of parts contribute to the operation of the system, including your calipers, rotors, and brake pads. Brake pads should be checked on often, as they are prone to wear out and become thin over time. This is because they press up against your rotors to slow the rotation of your wheels using heat and friction. This heat and friction slowly wear down your brake pads. If your brake pads are in need of replacement, sometimes, you can tell just by looking. Otherwise you might notice a change in how your brake system feels, or you might hear loud noises from the wear indicators. You can find OEM Acura brake pad replacements right here on our site.
