How do I know when it is time to replace my brake pads?

When to exchange Brake Pads:

So, how does one know when it’s time to interchange your brake pads? Your best bet is to possess the brake inspected regularly — a minimum of once a year. A technician will check the lifetime of your brake pads (indicated by their thickness) together with the operation of the remainder of the brake components and therefore the condition of your brake fluid. If you are doing not take your car certain inspection in time, however, your car will allow you to know when it’s time for brand spanking new brake pads.


Here is a list of signs that your brake pads have to be replaced:
    1. Most vehicles made today feature an occasional brake pad pilot lamp that signals a driver that it’s time for brand new pads by way of a dashboard warning lamp.
    2. Your brake pads is equipped with a tool called a wear indicator. This small thing is accountable for the high-pitched squealing sound after you use the brakes. Not all squeals result from the damage indicator; sometimes small irregularities in semi-metallic pads can cause an analogous sound.
    3. If you ignored the damage indicator squealing sound, a brand new sound is probably going to develop: a metallic grinding noise. When the friction material is entirely depleted on your constraint, the metal backing plate on the pads will contact the brake rotor. The metal-on-metal contact causes not only a grinding sound but actual grinding of 1 or more of the brake rotors. This may likely require replacement of the rotors, rather than just the constraint. And without the friction material intact, stopping power is greatly reduced.
    4. Shuddering or pulsing of the pedal or handwheel during braking is often a sign of (among other problems) restraint with uneven wear.
