Brake pad replacement? Ever wonder how to make brake pads? Usually I show you a DIY like how to replace brake pads, but in this video I show you how brake pads are made!
Brake pads from this factory: https://www.NRSbrakes.com/nrs-chrisfix/
To make brake pads, we start out with raw pickled and oiled steel. The steel gets stamped into a brake pad backing plate which gets analyzed to make sure it meets OEM specifications. Next the brake pad backing plate goes to the NRS press to get a mechanical attachment. Then the backing plates get galvanized and finally brake pad friction material is added. The manufacturer can add and friction material they want such as semi-metallic, organic, or ceramic friction material. Lastly the shim is made and installed on the brake pad and they can be sent to testing! When it is all said and done, I took the brake pads we made and installed them on my truck with new brake rotors!

The company that let me film in their factory is giving all of my fans 20% off their brakes using the code "20off" at checkout. I do not make any money from this! They are doing this to get you guys to try out their new technology brake pads and I will always share a discount to help my subscribers. Here is the link: https://www.NRSbrakes.com/nrs-chrisfix/

This video was one of my most favorite that I have ever made! It took about a months worth of work and I hope you enjoy! It took a lot of time and work to make and NRS brakes literally closed down part of their manufacturing line so I could film this. It’s absolutely incredible how much help they were! I hope you guys like it and I hope other brands reach out so we can do more of these how-it’s-made episodes!

Also I will be in Ireland for a meet-up on Saturday July 13 so check out my Instagram or YouTube stories for more info if you are from Ireland!

Heyyyy @chrisfix what's up bro Amazing content and really am a fan of your content just curious though is that how come you never show yourself on camera or even ig you're either in a helmet or it's just your hands I don't mean to be all up in your personal life just wondering if there's a reason for it? Thanks and have an amazing weekend looking forward to more content!

I loved seeing how they were made. You did a great job explaining it and keeping it entertaining.

I understand what he’s saying about the rust but couldn’t you just use some grease?

I'd replace the brake calipers too or at least spray paint them black

Brake lines from end to end would also be a great video. Teaming up with Agscompany.

Learn how to replace a clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throw out bearing (aka release bearing), pilot bearing and rear main seal in this video!

My clutch was fine but my throwout bearing was bad so I decided to show how to replace all of the wear items while the transmission was off. This includes replacing the pilot bearing which the transmission input shaft goes into, the throwout bearing which engages the pressure plate via the clutch fork, the flywheel which I upgraded to an aluminum light weight flywheel, and finally the rear main seal because that is a common wear item which causes oil leaks in higher mileage motors. With the transmission out, it is worth it to replace all of these parts now instead of having to do this all over again. Most clutch kits come with the throwout bearing and pilot bearing so you just need to buy a rear main seal.
