Brake Pad Replacement

What do brake pads do?

Brake pads are an essential part of any car’s braking system, with most cars having at least four sets of them. Their role is to push against your brake rotor when you brake. This causes friction which slows your vehicle down. Healthy brake pads help improve your vehicle safety by allowing your vehicle to stop sooner when the brakes are applied.

When do they need to be replaced?

Like many other parts of your vehicle, brake pads wear out and lose effectiveness over time and eventually need to be replaced. Each time you use your brakes, tiny amounts of protective coating will wear away from the pad.

Brake pads generally last up to 50,000 km but can last longer or shorter depending on the way the brakes are applied. Soft, smooth braking will allow for less deterioration whereas hard braking will remove more coating from the pad.

You can inspect your own brake pads to check if they need replacing. Look behind your mag/hubcap and you should see the brake pad and rotor. If the pad is less than 5mm thick, you should probably get it replaced as soon as possible.
