What happens when I get my brake pads replaced?

Brake pads are a wearable component that need to be replaced on the regular. Many technicians will forget about the brake rotor which is what the pad pushes against in order to stop the vehicle. Quite often, the rotor surface is not good enough for the brake pad to push against, which is where machining comes in. Rotor machining involves skimming the surface of the rotor in order to produce a fresh, clean surface for the brake pad to push against, causing better friction and therefore leading to better performance.
