Brake Pads & Maintenance Explained

Brake pads are a critical component for braking because they help generate the resistance needed to stop when the calipers clamp them into the rotors connected to each wheel. They are designed to wear down as a fine powder that we call brake dust. This purposeful wear protects the other braking components from damage, but this design also requires that worn-out brake pads get replaced. Brake pads are worn when they measure .1 inch or 3mm thin.

How Will I Know When Brake Pads Should Be Replaced?

There are several worn brake pad indicators to know that vary according to the Volkswagen model and year. Newer models equipped with brake pad monitoring will signal that brake pads are due for replacement with a dashboard warning light. Older models need routine inspections with the driver, also knowing that the telltale sign of worn brake pads is the eardrum-piercing metallic screech. This is caused by the brake pad indicator tab striking the rotor when they are due for replacement.

What are the Warning Signs of Worn-Out Brake Pads?

Worn brake pads create a safety issue because they are at risk of wearing down until nothing remains. This increases collision risk. It is important to know the warning signs of worn-out brake pads and respond with a prompt inspection and corrective maintenance if any surface. Here is a comprehensive list of worn brake pad warning signs:

  • Dashboard warning light
  • Grinding, screeching, or squealing when braking
  • Pulling to a side when braking
  • Vibrations in the brake pedal
  • Vehicle requires a greater distance to stop
