What are brake pads?
Brake pads form the contact point with the brake discs.
The pads are activated when the brake pedal is engaged inside the car. The brake pads squeeze against the discs to slow down the wheels and bring the vehicle to a stop.
Signs of worn brake pads
Due to the extreme operating conditions, brake pads wear out.
Indications of worn brake pads include grinding or squealing when the brakes are applied. A hard, spongy brake pedal that requires added pressure to stop the car is also a sign of worn brake pads.
Visibly worn brake pads are a sure sign the parts need replacing.
How often to replace brake pads?
Brake pads should be replaced every 65,000 to 80,000 km, depending on road conditions and driving style.
How to replace brake pads
It’s best practice to replace all four brake pads.
Once the car is jacked up, remove the wheel and slider bolt. Shift the calliper, containing the pad, into an upright position.
Slide out the worn brake pad and replace the retaining clips. Insert the new brake pad and replace the slider bolt. Repeat the process on the remaining three wheels.
