What is Rear Brake Pad Replacement?

For those who are yet unfamiliar, a rear brake pad replacement occurs when you have to replace the plates that are glued or riveted to the steel backing plate that helps protect your brakes. During the process, a qualified technician simply replaces your worn pads with new ones.

Why do I Need to Replace My Rear Brake Pads?

The purpose of brake pads is to limit metal on metal friction, as it can be both damaging and dangerous. These pads must be replaced regularly to protect the rotors and calipers from damage.

Generally speaking, front and rear brake pads are the same in many aspects. For instance, they are both typically made from a combination of materials such as copper, iron, graphite, steel, and graphite. However, one of the major differences is that front brake pads are often bigger than rear ones. This is due to the fact that front brake pads do the majority of the work when a car is braking. Additionally, this also causes them to become worn out faster than rear brake pads.

How Often do I Need to Get My Brake Pads Inspected and/or Replaced?

In terms of how often you need to have your brake pads inspected or replaced, this largely depends on how often you are using them. For instance, those who frequently drive, especially in areas requiring one to frequently stop and go, are likely to need their brakes replaced more often than those who do not. However, the general rule of thumb in terms of brake replacement is to have your brakes replaced every 50,000 miles. However, depending on the quality of brake you are using, they may need to be replaced in as little as 25,000 miles or as much as 70,000 miles.

Why Should I Come to VW Cypress for Service?

While you can have your brakes replaced almost anywhere the service is offered, going to the dealer ensures that high-quality products will be installed into your car and that it will be handled with the utmost care. Additionally, dealerships often provide you with warranties on your parts and services that many other auto shops do not.
