Measuring a brake pad

Two of the most common reaons to measure a disc pad are: Pad identification; and pad wear checking

 

Pad identification is a cruicial step in any brake job, particularly now when some vehicles can be fitted with several different brake options and vehicle owners have a greater access to aftermarket brake upgrade kits, The brake fitter needs to confim that the new pads are the same part as the old pads. Sometimes a visual inspection, or back-to-back comparison of the pads is enough to identify a difference. Other time when the pad shape is the same a couple of simple measurements will verify the part.
