  1. Inside pad is the one that wears most because of the floating caliper it may not glide well to apply even pressure and if anything goes bad in sliding pins, the most wear will be on inside pad and not the outside.
    So you have to lift the car to inspect from underneath or remove the wheel and inspect from top.
    The most convenient way to check the pad is the angled inspection mirror and flashlight between the rim and caliper where it may have a visiting window to see clearly both pads and the rotor. But on most cars there is so little space between rim and caliper that you can't do this.

  2. it worked btw

  3. You should have taken the wheel off to compare how accurate this method is

  4. Succinct explanation and pleasant talk, As my English is not good enough, I had to check subtitles sometimes and subtitles do not always give you accurate wordings from what you said. 🙂 , But this is very helpful.

  5. im sorry but no, that is NOT a professional way to check your break pads… wtf

    I've always just rubbed my finger along the rotor see make sure theirs no bumpy or warped surface(aka replace rotors lol) You'll be able to know when your pads need replaced if you changed your breaks EVER lol
