Your vehicle braking system uses friction to stop the momentum of the vehicle when the brakes are applied. This friction is produced by contact between the Chrysler brake pads and the brake disc. Chrysler brake pads are lined with a friction compound, made up of metal filings, carbon and strong adhesives, formulated to provide the Chrysler brake pads with a firm grip on the brake disc when the brakes are applied. Chrysler brake pads are operated by the brake caliper, using a piston to squeeze them inwards to contact with the brake disc when you step on the brake pedal, then allowing them to move away when the pedal is released. With every application of the brakes, a bit if the lining of the Chrysler brake pads wears away, making it necessary to replace them periodically as part of regular brake system maintenance. Many Chrysler brake pads are equipped with a wear indicator that will begin to make noise when the friction coating becomes worn, giving an alert to the driver that maintenance due. The Chrysler brake pads should wear evenly in a braking system that is operating smoothly. If one wheel of the vehicle is wearing through the Chrysler brake pads more quickly than the others, there is very likely to be a problem in the brake assembly at that wheel, perhaps a caliper that is not working as well as it should, or a leak in the system causing a lack of fluid pressure.
