It would be the rubber pad that sits on your brake pedal. Unless they were referring to brake pads, which are the pads which enables your vehicle to stop by pressing the brake pedal.

Brake pads are the pads that sit on top of the rotor that when the brake pedal is pressed the brake pads squeeze the rotor and the car stops. Signs that they need replacing are if you hear squeaking when pressing the brake pedal.

Yes it has front brake pads.

I am not a car professional but I think that installing brake shoes simply means installing brake pads. And brake pads are what helps you slow down and stop while driving.

a low brake pedal indicates worn brake pads and shoes.have then replaced

make sure your brake pads are in good condition, a vibration in the brake pedal indicates a warped rotor to include worn front disk pads, make sure your front tires are not going bald, because they will do just as much vibration as a warped rotor when stepping on the brake pedal.

brake shoes are used with drum brakes and are " spread out " when the brake pedal is applied ( brake shoes are used for the rear brakes on 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorers ) brake pads are used with disc brakes and squeeze on both sides of the brake rotor when the brake pedal is applied ( 1995 and newer Ford Explorers have disc brakes front and rear )

It would be unusual to have the same brake pads front and back. That is not to say it does not happen but normally the brake pads on the driven wheels are bigger than the passive wheels.

Most cars have 4 brake pads in the front two per side of the car

Brake pedal will be soft if the front pads are seized in the slides..and/or your rear brakes are dirty and out of adjustment. Pull up the park brake slowly and count the clicks it goes up More than 5 clicks...needs rear brake adjustment

The brake pads in a Volvo s40 can be changed by safely raising and propping the vehicle up. Removing the wheels and caliper. Slide the brake pads from the caliper. Before installing new pads spray brake cleaner. Install new pads.

You need to remove the brake calipers, make sure that you push back the caliper pistons (monitor level of the fluid in the brake fluid reservoir, you might have to get rid of some). After that install you pads. Make sure that you have tighten everything properly. Press the brake pedal to check if your brakes are working. PS: Never press the brake pedal if brake system is not completely assembled.
