Volkswagen Brake Pad Replacement
Brake pads are an essential component of your vehicle's braking system. It is your brake pads that compress around the rotors of your wheels when you apply your brakes. This slows down your wheels and stops your vehicle. Brake pads that aren't functioning properly will make it so that your vehicle doesn't slow and stop as efficiently as it should when you apply your brakes.
You will periodically need to change all of the brake pads on your vehicle. However, there are some important differences to be aware of regarding front brake pad replacement and rear brake pad replacement. As a general rule, front brake pads wear out more often. Also, front brake pads are different because they are larger. The brake pads that are put in place on your front wheels should differ in size and shape from the brake pads used on your rear wheels. Therefore, brake pads between the front and rear wheels are not generally interchangeable.
Why Do I Need Brake System Service?
How often your brake pads will last depends on quite a few different factors. Your brake pad lifespan can depend upon the model vehicle you drive as well as your driving habits. You can generally expect your brake pads to last around 25,000 to 50,000 miles. You should notice some signs when your brake pads are worn out and need to be replaced. For example, you may notice unusual noises while braking when you need new brake pads. You might also need new brake pads if you notice that your brakes aren't as responsive as they used to be.
