VIDEO: Installing A New Brake Pad

In this video, the host installs brake pads that feature mechanically attached friction on a galvanized-steel backing plate.

Common reasons that brake pads make noise is because they’re rusty or the brake pad is worn out. 

In this “ChrisFix” video, Chris discovers that one of the vehicle’s inboard brake pads has been making a scraping noise because the brake-pad material separated from the backing plate. He explains that rust that crept underneath the pad material weakened the bond between the brake pad and the backing plate.   

To prevent this from happening again, he installs NRS brake pads that feature mechanically attached friction on a galvanized-steel backing plate.

What Are Direct Ignition Coils?

The stick coil eliminates ignition wires and utilizes wasted space by fitting neatly into the spark plug bore.

Ignition coils transform battery voltage into the higher voltage needed to jump the spark plug gap and efficiently ignite the air-fuel mixture in an engine.

Direct ignition coils are by far the most common type of ignition coil found in modern direct ignition systems, and they’ve been adopted by most of the major automakers. In this design, the coil mounts directly on top of the spark plug, eliminating the need for an ignition wire.
