Correct brake pad maintenance and inspection not only for your car long life, but also for your safety as a driver or passenger is essential. Simply say: Your vehicle's brake allows you to slow down and stop the car from running. Unfortunately, brakes can often be ignored when performing vehicle maintenance on a regular basis. So how do we do to ensure that the brake pads are good?

There is no clear time to replace the brakes, which means that you may need to consider checking the brakes regularly to determine if your brakes are worn. Typical brake pads wear depends on your driving style and location. For example, if you are driving in the city, due to the stop and start of city traffic, your brakes may be worn even faster than people driving on rural roads. I would like you to recommend that you have not checked it for six months.

So how do you check it? First you can listen to your brakes, your vehicle brakes are designed to be used as an early warning signal and need to change them. This noise usually sounds like a metal scratch on a wheel when the car is moving, and the sound caused by these wear indicators is usually getting bigger and bigger, and the more the brake is used. If there are still noisy brakes after the inspection, different adjustments or repairs may be required.

Second look at the wheel, the wheel on the brake dust accumulation is another sign of normal wear and tear. When the brake pad is completely worn, the amount of dust on the wheel will usually drop. If you find dust accumulation, attention may be the need to replace the brake pads of the logo.

Finally, you can observe the brake pads, in many cars, the brake pads can be seen through the wheels. Look at it to determine its thickness. If it looks thin, may need to be replaced. Some brakes have a slot in the center for use as a wear indicator. Look at the trough, if it almost disappears, then it may need to be replaced.

If you feel you will not check the brakes, then you can regularly go to the local repair shop, so that professionals can help you check and replace.
