Having brakes that work correctly is an important part of being a responsible car owner. It could potentially save your life and also will help to extend the life of your vehicle. Each time you use your brake pads, they will wear down little by little. There are different types of brake pads, including organic, ceramic, and metallic. The coating on them slowly deteriorates and will let you know when it’s time to change them. Your car will give you a few signs that your brake pads need to be replaced. Keep a lookout for some of these indications. Most cars need to have their brake pads replaced every 35,000 to 50,000 miles, so be sure to stop in and see us if it is time for your brake pad replacement service. It’s important to stay on top of all of your car’s repairs and maintenance.
The first sign that the brake pads need to be worked on is that there will be a squealing or screeching noise when you use them. Everyone’s heads will turn in traffic, and you don’t want to have brake pads that clearly need to be changed. It is a big deal, and you should change them as soon as you hear a loud whining noise. The noise is caused by a metallic part in the brake pads that are specifically designed for this purpose so you know when you should change it.
Another sign your brake pads need to be changed can be when you look at them. If there is less than a quarter-inch of brake pad left, then you need new ones. Your car also might have an indicator light that turns on when you need to change your brake pads. If this happens, then bring it into our shop and let us take care of you. Visit us today if you have any questions about rear brake pad replacement. You can wait in our comfortable waiting room, and enjoy the free wifi we have on-site.
