Safety is critical when you’re driving a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds, which is why brakes are so important. The only way to make sure you can stop on a dime at any time is to get a Volkswagen brake pad replacement at Rusty Wallis Volkswagen on occasion.
The way your brakes work, the brake pads wear down the more you use them. Eventually, those pads will be so low that they need to be replaced. Replacing your brake pads is a fairly involved process, but it doesn’t take too long and it’s not incredibly expensive. It’s important that you have your brakes inspected regularly so you know when it’s time to replace your brake pads, especially the front ones. Front brake pad replacement is generally required more than rear brake pad replacement because the front brake pads endure more wear and tear.
Like most parts of your Volkswagen, your brake pads don’t last forever. As a matter of fact, brake pads wear down relatively quickly because they’re tasked with such a difficult job. Every time you push your brake pedal, your brake pads grip the rotors to create friction, which wears down the material of the brake pad. Eventually, this material will wear down to the point that the metal underneath is exposed, which leads to a big reduction in stopping power and a squealing noise when you apply your brakes.
Staying on top of brake inspections and brake pad replacement is hugely important when it comes to safety. You should have somebody take a look at your brakes at least once a year, although it’s best to have a brake inspection done every six months. If your brake pads are past their prime or you’re low on brake fluid, you can take care of that immediately after the inspection. In any case, you should follow the brake pad manufacturer’s recommendations as far as how often you need to replace your brake pads. The better your brake pads are, the longer they’ll last.
