Brake Pad Replacement And Brake Repairs
An intact braking system is important so that you are safe on the road and can rely on your brakes at all times. Because if the brake is defective, the risk of an accident increases dangerously. So that you can brake quickly and reliably when every second counts, you should have your brake discs and pads thoroughly checked in a workshop on a regular basis.
The individual components wear out at different rates. Therefore, not all elements of the braking system always have to be replaced.
As soon as the wear limit is reached, change the brake pads for each axle. Many vehicles nowadays have a wear indicator on the brake pad. If this works mechanically, there is a metal pin that scratches the brake disc as soon as the wear limit is reached.
If you hear a screeching noise when braking , please drive to the nearest workshop and have your brakes checked there. Such disturbing noises do not necessarily have to indicate a worn surface. However, it can sometimes be an indication of improper assembly. In these cases, have the brake system checked by a specialist and change the brake discs and pads if necessary . In the case of an electronic wear indicator, a light comes on in the dashboard when the covering has worn off.
And when do brake pads have to be replaced?
How often you have to have the brake pads changed depends on your driving style and how much you use the pads. Those who drive many kilometers a day should have their brake pads changed more often than drivers who only use their vehicle occasionally. Experts recommend having the brake lining checked twice a year. If the disc is so worn that it has to be replaced, the brake lining is always replaced, even if it is not worn out yet. Changing the brake pads is important; otherwise the braking performance could be impaired or there would be rubbing noises and faster wear. In addition, the brakes are exchanged axially. In this way, the automotive experts ensure that the braking force is evenly distributed between both wheels on an axle and that you are safe on the road.
Why do I have to have the brake pads changed?
In contrast to the brake discs, the brake pads are largely made of a significantly softer material. This is located on a steel carrier plate and prevents the abrasion-intensive friction of steel on steel. The brake pads, also known as brake pads, are therefore subjected to the greatest stress with each individual braking process and therefore wear out the fastest. Therefore you have to have the brake pads changed more often.
How often do the brake pads have to be changed?
There is no uniform interval for the frequency of a brake lining change. The individual wear and tear depends primarily on the number of kilometers driven, but driving behavior and the car model also play a role. If your brake pads are checked once or twice a year, for example during an inspection or when changing tires, you are on the safe side. Your specialist will inform you as soon as you should have the brake pads changed. The regular brake check should not be missed under any circumstances, as worn or stuck brake pads significantly reduce the braking performance and ultimately lead to a failure of the brake.
