Brake Pads & Maintenance Replacement Explained

Brake pads are essential braking system components at the heart of creating the resistance necessary to stop. They get clamped against the rotor discs connected to the wheels when you push the brake pedal. They are purposefully designed to wear out with the brake pad dust collecting on the rims as the evidence of them wearing down. Brake pads wear out contingent upon driving factors. Given the uncertainty regarding how long they will last, the recommendation is to have them inspected routinely and replaced when they are worn.

When Should Brake Pads Get Replaced?

Brake pads have an average life between 25,000 and 50,000 miles, with routine inspections as the ideal way to stay on top of brake pad maintenance. When getting tire rotations every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, we will perform a brake inspection including an assessment of brake pad condition. This includes a certified technician measuring how much brake pad is left. Brake pads are worn-out when they measure 3mm or .1 inch thick.

What Are the Worn-Out Brake Pad Indicators?

Knowing when your Volkswagen’s brake pads are worn depends upon the model year and equipment. Older model Volkswagen’s brake pads not equipped with brake pad monitoring will emit an eardrum-piercing metallic screech when the pads are worn. Newer models equipped with brake pad monitoring have a dashboard warning light that comes on when the pads are due for replacement. It is always a good decision to get the brake pads inspected alongside other services regardless of the equipment for safety purposes.
