When To Replace Brake Pads?

Your brake pads are one of the most important parts of your vehicle's braking system. It is crucial to ensure that they are always in perfect working condition. Faulty or worn out brake pads can compromise your safety. Not sure when to replace your brake pads? We can help.


Generally speaking, you must replace your brake pads every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. However, that number may differ depending on driving styles and level of maintenance and upkeep of the car. Fortunately, when your brake pads are worn out beyond the scope of repair, it will give you clear signs. Here are the most prominent signs that say your brakes may have gotten worn out.


Do you hear a screeching sound every time you apply brakes?

Getting a squeaking or squealing sound from your brakes is one of the most common signs of wear and tear. If the brakes are not replaced soon enough, the damage may also spread to the rotors, making the entire repair even more expensive.


Do you feel vibrations upon applying brakes?

If you feel vibrations while applying brakes, chances are that your vehicle's braking system is in bad shape and requires professional help. In fact, with a weak braking system, your rotors might also get warped creating uneven brake pad wear at the same time.


Are your brakes not performing adequately?

Loss of performance or delayed braking is one of the most alarming signs that your brake pads need replacement. If your car is taking a long time to stop despite applying the brakes as required, it can compromise your safety on the road and cause potential accidents.  Experiencing less than ideal stoppage time while applying your brakes is a manifest sign that you need brake replacement. Alternatively, it may also mean that your brake pads are worn out or that your brake fluid is low.


Is your brake pad indicator light coming on?

Most modern cars come fitted with brake warning lights. Usually, one light is indicative of the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and the other is the brake system warning light. Whereas the brake light switching itself on is a clear sign of a problem, the light not turning on does not mean that your brakes are in perfect condition.


Are your brake pads looking thin and worn out?

If your brake pads look thin and worn out, you might want to consider replacing them.
