When to replace brake pads?

Brake pads are undoubtedly one of the most vital parts of your vehicle’s braking system and keeping them in good working condition is highly imperative for your safety on the road. Brake pads provide the friction to slow or stop your vehicle. When you press on the brake pedal, multiple networks of parts rise into action. Having said that, in order for the system to keep operating smoothly and without any trouble, certain pieces must be replaced on a routine basis. Continuing to drive with worn brake pads is absolutely risky, and as a vehicle owner, you should never let your pads reach the point where you can hear metallic grinding noise and start experiencing other red flags. Stop by a vehicle repair shop near you for a free brake check.

There are plenty of warning signs that can indicate you may need new brake pads. A few of them are listed below:

  • Squeaking noise from the breaks
  • Vibrating brake pedal
  • Grinding sound when breaking
  • Indicator light comes on
  • Bringing your car to a stop takes more time than it should
  • Brake pads appear to be thin

If you notice any of the above signs, it’s best advised to get your vehicle thoroughly inspected by experts at car garage in Stansted for complete diagnostics and smart repairs.
