Brakes & Brake Repair In Trail, BC

One of the top components that keep you safe when you’re driving in Trail is your Ford’s brake system. That’s why it’s vital that you keep them in good shape and to come see us at AM Ford for brake pad replacement.

The winter weather in the Kootenay Rockies always means abundant snow and ice — making it much more difficult to come to a complete stop. If your vehicle’s brake pads are worn down to practically nothing, you won’t be able to stop in time to avoid a potential collision or sliding off the road.

Another reason to prioritize brake pad replacement is that it will help lengthen the life of your vehicle’s rotors. The rotors and brake pads work together to create friction that bring the vehicle to a stop. When the brake pads wear down too much, the metal braking plate rubs against the metal rotor, causing permanent damage to both components. Because they are larger and require more materials to make, rotors are much more expensive to replace than brake pads.

Brake pads are typically measured with a micrometer to determine their thickness. We suggest that they are at least 2-3mm in thickness and, when they get below these levels or close to them, you should have them replaced by AM Ford.
