Today many cars have four-wheel disc brake systems. A disc brake system has a rotor, and a caliper that clamps friction pads against the rotor. When inspecting your brake pads, they should be as thick as their metal back. There are warning signs to alert drivers that brake pads are worn. One is an electronic sensor that causes a dash light to light up, but the oldest warning system is noise. A metal tab on the brake pad causes a screeching noise to warn the driver of pad wear, in other words if your brakes are squealing get them checked.
