Brake pads wear out after a certain period of time and need to be replaced. This does not mean that your vehicle has any mechanical problems. Replacing brake pads is a normal maintenance service for every vehicle with disk brakes. It is part of the manufacturer-recommended service schedule for most vehicles. If your vehicle is under warranty, you can get your vehicle’s brake pads replaced at one of the routine service visits that will likely be scheduled when you first buy the car. Replacing the brake pads takes only a few minutes, as it is a relatively minor maintenance task.
While replacing brake pads is a quick and easy job for properly equipped mechanics, there may be dire consequences for people who don’t get their brake pads replaced. When brake pads wear beyond their normal allowance, your vehicle’s braking performance will suffer. If you hear squealing when you hit the brakes, this is a good indicator that your brake pads are well past their service life and need to be replaced. If you continue to drive your car without replacing the brake pads, the brake disks may eventually become warped. The calipers could also become damaged if the brake pads wear completely through.
If it’s time to replace your car’s brake pads and you don’t do it, you’ll slowly start to lose braking performance. This could make your vehicle unsafe to drive. After a sustained period without functional brake pads, your vehicle’s brake disks and brake calipers may begin to suffer. These parts may even end up breaking due to malfunctioning brake pads if the problem continues for long enough.
