Why it is advisable to replace brake pads?
Brake cushions have a metal support plate with a grinding material bound to the surface that reaches the brake rotor. The grating connected to the brake rotors helps stop the turning wheels, causing your car to stop. Worn brake cushions will be unable to stop your car effectively and securely.
When is the right time to replace brake pads?
It is advisable to check for cushion wear every 25,000 kilometres. This is important to make sure your car will stop whenever you step on the brakes. Once you notice signs of wear and tear, replace the brake pads immediately.
Two of the most common signs of brake cushion issues are squealing and scratching. A squealing sound while braking can be a result of detached clatter cuts, callipers, or cushion covers. The most common reason is worn brake pads. Scratching may occur due to detached brake parts, a stone stuck between the cushion and the rotor and worn out brake cushions. If left unsolved for a long period, these problems may cause damage to the brake rotors and other mechanical parts. Repairing or replacing them would be the best option.
When your brake starts to fail or if it is not stopping your car effectively, you may have worn or exhausted cushions. Routine checks and maintenance are necessary to find existing and potential problems and take the necessary action.
