If you’re looking for Honda brake pads and rotors in Port Richey, the team here at our parts department will be happy to find the exact fit for your Honda model, and our service center is always available to have them installed or to check on your current pads and rotors. This should be taken care of as part of your manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule, but you may find your brake pads or brake rotors have worn down faster than expected.
As such, it’s important for every Clearwater driver to know:
You’ve probably heard of brake pads, but you might not know exactly what they are or how they work. In a nutshell, brake pads are covered with friction material on one side and attached to brake calipers on the other. When you hit the brakes, the caliper presses the pad against the brake rotor mounted on your wheels, which is what causes your vehicle to lose speed.
Most Honda brake pads will last around 50,000 miles before needing to be switched out, but signs yours may require replacing sooner include:
You can also perform a quick visual inspection. If your brakes pads are less than a quarter inch thick, they probably need to be replaced.
As mentioned above, the brake rotors are fixed to the wheel hub – you should be able to see them just behind the hubcap. They usually need replacing every 30,000 to 70,000 miles, with signs they’ve become worn sooner than expected including:
Visual inspections are a little harder with brake rotors than with pads, but you can check for surface cracks. If you notice any, it’s time to schedule servicing.
We’re always here to help whether you need to arrange a test drive in the new Honda Accord or find out more about how to keep your braking system in good working order. For any further assistance, feel free to contact us directly.
