Overheated Brake Pads

Brake pads need to be lubricated periodically, or they’ll stick in the holders. When that happens, they can start to overheat. Overheated pads don’t last very long.

One of these pads broke as I removed it from the car, and you can also see that all of them have a crack in the middle from the heat.

These were even worse, you can see how the friction material has turned white from the heat. Make sure you service your brakes regularly so this doesn’t happen and cost you money prematurely.
