    I see you are in Montreal. The parking brake pads should never wear out in theory. They should only lock on and release when the car is stationary and should not be in contact with the rotor while it is moving unless they are corroded or extremely dirty from lack of maintenance/servicing.

    don’t be surprised if they are seized and you need the whole parking brake calipers because the pins cannot be punched out.
    And it is a real bitch removing the plug the first time; a piece of electrical tape should be placed over the connection to keep crud out and make it easier next time.

    they should be cleaned and lubed along with the regular brake calipers annually in climates with substantial winters where salt/magnesium or calcium chloride is applied on the roads.

    edit: I see this is from April, did you end up getting this done? Did you do it or did you have a shop do it?
