Brake pads are also called brake pads. In braking system of a car, brake pad is most important safety part.
Brake pads play a critical role in quality of all braking effects, so good brake pads protect people and vehicles. We must check brake pads frequently to see if they need to be replaced.
The timing of replacement of brake pads and brake discs is not fixed, which depends on driving conditions of car, frequency and force of pressing brake pedal by driver. Generally speaking, service life of front brake pads is 30,000 to 50,000 kilometers, and service life of rear brake pads is 120,000 to 150,000 kilometers.
The best time to change your brake pads. The thickness of brake pads of disc brakes can be checked by stepping on brake plate, and thickness of brake pads of brake pads of drum brakes must be checked by pulling out brake.
The design of brake pad can be roughly divided into: steel back, friction block and accessories. The steel back must have sufficient strength and be suitable for installation; friction block is mainly composed of an adhesive layer and a (bottom layer) friction material; accessories mainly include sound absorbing plates, retaining rings, signal devices or signal lines.
We can also check daily to see if brake pads need replacing. Here are some very simple ways that anyone can learn.
See with your own eyes
Check if brake pads and brake discs are thin. You can use a small flashlight to observe and check. When you find that black friction material of brake pads has worn out and is less than 5mm thick, you should consider replacing them.
Feel power of brakes
If you have more experience, you may feel that brakes are soft when there are no brake pads. It's a feeling that depends on your own driving over years.
Listen to sound
The brake pads of some older cars are not connected to driving computer, but there is a small iron plate on brake pads for signaling. When there is almost no friction material, brake disc wears not on brake pads, but on a small iron plate, which is alarming. At this time, car will make a sharp "chirping" sound of friction between metals, which is a signal to replace brake pads.
This is a daily car skills, car owners and friends should always pay attention to our car. A car with a healthy body can take us where we want to go.
