Brakes are a critical component of any vehicle, and they must function correctly. When you depress the brake pedal, the brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is pressurized, and then the fluid is squeezed along the brake lines to the cylinders that are next to the brakes at each of the four wheels. As the brake pedal is depressed, the brake pad generates friction against the brake disc, which causes your Volkswagen to slow and stop. As your vehicle ages, constant use of the brakes causes the pads to wear and tear, leading to the brakes not working as effectively. For Volkswagen brake pad replacement, it is important to visit a certified shop that only utilizes factory trained technicians and OEM certified parts. Luckily, at Emich Volkswagen in Boulder, CO, we specialize in servicing every type of Volkswagen.
Your owner’s manual serves as an excellent guide for what services should be done and at what mileage interval. However, it is important to remember that the manual’s recommendations may not factor in the type of driving that you do. Frequent stop and go traffic or constant use of the brakes will mean that your front and rear brake pads begin to wear sooner than other drivers. The first sign that your brake pads need to be replaced is if you hear a squealing or whining noise when the brakes are being used. Lastly, if you hear a very deep and low noise that sounds like grinding metal, then this is a clear sign that your brake pads are worn and that the brake discs and calipers are making contact, which can cause even further damage to your vehicle’s braking system.
Front and rear brake pads are different, with the most notable difference being that front brake pads are larger than rear ones. Given that front brake pads handle the brunt of stopping your vehicle, it is not surprising that they also wear quicker than rear brake pads.
