What are the Signs You Need New Brake Pads?

Mechanic Adjusting Brake Pad

Brake pads are an important part of your vehicle, as they’re what stops the wheels from moving when you step on the brake pedal. If they’re not working properly, you could end up in a dangerous situation or, worse yet, cause an accident. Luckily, there are signs that will let you know if it is time to replace your brake pads. Discover the six signs you need new brake pads today with Land Rover Newport Beach, and then visit our service center for help near Corona Del Mar and Irving.

6 Signs of Failing Brake Pads

  1. Squealing or Squeaking Brakes: Have you been having a problem with your brakes making a squealing or squeaking sound when applying the brake pedal? It could be that it is time to replace them. If they are worn, then this noise will start to happen as well as not stopping properly and grinding going downhills.
  2. Grinding Noise: Grinding noises can also mean that it is time to replace your brake pads. If you hear a light grinding sound, then the rotors are probably not too bad yet and likely just need resurfacing or if they’re really damaged, replacing them may be necessary as well.
  3. Vibration When Braking: Do you feel a vibration when braking? This is not good, and it may be time to replace the brake pads.
  4. Taking Longer to Stop: Are you noticing that your brakes are not stopping the car or truck quite as quickly? If so, then it is definitely time to replace them.
  5. Brake Light Illuminated: Is your brake light illuminated on the dashboard? If so, then this means that you need to get your brakes checked out immediately.
  6. Brake Pads Are Thin: If you have to press harder on your brake pedal, then it may mean that the pads are thin and need replacing. You may also notice they appear thinner if you do a visual inspection of your brakes.
