What Do the Brake Pads Do?
When you step on the brake pedal, hydraulic brake fluid both amplifies and transfers the force of your foot, causing the calipers to squeeze brake pads down onto the rotors or discs. The brake pads are made of two main components: the backing, which is made of metal, and the lining, which is made of a friction-resistant material. The backing is what connects to the calipers, while the lining presses against the rotors. This lining is designed to prevent friction damage; as such, it wears down faster than the metal of the rotor. It's important to get your brake pads replaced before the lining has worn out entirely. If you don't, the metal backing will contact the rotors, which can damage them.
How Often Does My VW Need Brake Pad Replacement?
Unlike some services, there's no exact mileage at which this one should be performed. Sometimes, brake pads last up to 50,000 miles. Other times, they only last 25,000 miles or less. This is even true of OEM VW brake pads, and it's primarily due to different braking habits. That's why we recommend having your brakes inspected regularly. During a brake inspection, our technicians will see how much of the brake pad lining is left and let you know if the brake pads need to be replaced.
