The automotive braking system has several components working together to generate the resistance necessary for stopping. Brake pads create stopping power when they are pressed against the rotor discs connected to the wheels. All brake pads are designed to wear out, but front brake pads tend to wear down faster compared to rear brake pads. Efficient maintenance often involves replacing the front or rear brake pads exclusively to get the most out of all brake pads.
Brake pads cause warning signs to let the driver know they are due for replacement. This depends upon your make and model with newer models often equipped with brake pad monitoring, and older models emitting a telltale audible screeching when the warning tab strikes the rotor. It is important for you to understand your vehicle’s braking equipment and always get the brake pads inspected at major service intervals regardless. Get a brake system inspection if you notice any of these telltale warning signs of defective braking:
Front brake pad replacement is about installing brand new brake pads of maximum thickness. This involves removing the worn-out front brake pads, inspecting the full brake system, and installing the highest quality genuine Nissan OEM parts. Service concludes with a driving test to verify the result.

Beyond the severe damage that this will cause, it will also cause poor braking with an increased risk of getting into a collision.
