    If new brake pads are put onto a vehicle with damaged rotors, the pad won't properly contact the rotor surface, reducing the vehicle's stopping ability. Deep grooves that have developed in a worn rotor will act as a hole-puncher or shredder and damage the pad material as it is pressed against the rotor.

  • Do you have to change both brake discs?

    Many professionals and mechanics would recommend that both elements of the brake system be replaced at the same time, but occasionally the owner may be able to just replace the brake pads without the rotor if the rotor isn't showing as much wear and tear.
  • Should car be in neutral when changing brakes?

    Start the vehicle.

    Making sure the vehicle is in neutral or park, pump the brakes 15 to 20 times to make sure the pad is seated properly. Top off brake fluid levels or follow bleeding of brakes section to flush out old fluid and replace with new fluid.
  • What happens if rotors are not replaced?

    If you don't replace the rotors when needed, you risk brake failure and an accident. The rotor absorbs and dissipates heat when the brakes are applied. The thinner the rotor becomes, the more heat is absorbed. This excess heat warps the rotor.29 Jul 2021
