The Importance of Your Volkswagen Brake Pads

The brake pads in your Volkswagen are part of its disc braking system. When you step on the brake pedal, the brake calipers squeeze together; the brake pads are connected to the calipers by a metal backing. In addition to this backing, the brake pads also have a softer lining that comes into contact with the rotors to slow your Volkswagen down or bring it to a stop.

Why Rear Brake Pad Replacement Service is Necessary

The rear brake pad lining that presses against the metal rotors is made from a softer material that is designed to stop your vehicle without suffering damage from friction. This means that the lining will wear down much faster than the rotors. When the brake pad lining gets thin enough, the metal backing is in danger of being exposed. If this happens, the backing will grind against the rotors, causing damage to the braking system. Typically your front brake pads will be needed to be replaced more often than the rear.

When to Replace Rear Brake Pads

Brake pads will sometimes give off a warning when they need to be changed. If the lining gets thin enough, it will expose a tab that will make a loud squeal when you step on the brakes. If you ignore this sign, the next sound you hear might be a grinding of metal on metal -- not a good sound at all. The best way to know when your brake pads need to be changed, however, is to come to Don Thornton Volkswagen of Tulsa for regular brake inspection service. Our technicians will let you know how thick the brake pads are, and whether they need to be replaced soon.
