Rear Brake Pads & Replacement Maintenance

Brake pads are positioned at the front and rear wheels, where they generate resistance when clamped by the calipers against the rotors. Brake pads are made of a high-friction metal composite bonded by resin; they wear down as designed when exposed to intense braking friction and heat. Front and rear brake pads often wear down due to variable load-bearing. This leads to the most efficient maintenance being offset with rear brake pads replaced without the front brake pads because they have sufficient thickness remaining.

How Often Should I Replace Rear Brake Pads?

Although auto manufacturers recommend many routine maintenance services according to miles, the brake pads are replaced as necessary according to wear/thickness. Brake pads should receive routine inspections with thickness assessments alongside other services and at major maintenance intervals. You’ll often need to replace rear brake pads depending upon driving habits and the thickness when measured. Brake pad replacement is urged when they measure 3mm.

Brake Pads Need Replacement Service Indicators

Brake pads and many newer models’ braking systems are designed to signal the driver when brake pads require replacement. Brake pads are designed with a steel warning tab that strikes the wheel rotor when worn to emit an eardrum-piercing screech, squeal, or chirp. This noise will occur when not braking and might stop when the brake pedal is pushed. Newer models with brake pad monitoring equipment have a dashboard warning light when brake pad replacement is needed.
