VW Brake Pad Replacement

Brake Pad Replacement

The brakes in your vehicle are essential to your safety. If your brakes aren’t functioning properly, it can put you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road at risk. The brake pads are the major part of your brake system. Most brake pads need to be replaced every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. At Volkswagen Cypress, we offer services for both the front and rear brake pads. Because your brake pads’ lifespan depends on your driving habits and the type of pads, it is a good idea to be able to recognize the signs that you need to have your brake pads replaced:

  1. A Squealing Sound

    Most brake pads on the market today are designed with a feature to let you know that it is time to have them replaced. When the pads reach a certain point, the safety feature kicks in, and the brake pads will squeal. To avoid causing damage to the rotors and other brake parts, you should have the brake pads replaced as soon as you hear the noise.

  2. Grinding

    If you hear a grinding sound when you hit the brakes, you should have your brakes checked right away. The grinding sound means that the brake pads have worn down, and the grinding sound is metal on metal. When the brakes get to this point, the vehicle isn’t safe to drive; therefore, brake pad replacement is necessary.

  3. Vibration When Braking

    If you hit the brakes and the brake pedal vibrates, you should bring your vehicle to the garage immediately. The brake pads could be wearing out unevenly, which could be causing the problem. It could also be that the rotors are warped. In either case, the vehicle won’t be safe to drive until the necessary repairs are made.

  4. Soft Brakes

    If you hit the brakes and they seem softer or go to the floor, there is a good chance that your brake pads need to be replaced. If you don’t have the pads replaced, the vehicle won’t stop when you need it to.

  5. Visual Inspection

    It is easy to tell if you need front brake pad replacement or rear brake pad replacement just by looking at them. You can see the brake pads in between the spokes in the tires. If the pads appear to be less than ¼ inches thick, they should be repaired.
