Car safety for every owner, in the process of driving is the first priority.When the brake pad needs to be replaced, basically can be judged from three aspects.
In addition to airbags, anti-collision beams, seat belts and some high-tech anti-collision systems, the performance of the brakes is also an important factor affecting safety.Brake pad as vulnerable parts, many owners are to follow the advice of the mechanic, in the end do not need to change their own is confused, how long should the brake pad change?Don't be fooled, people who understand cars tell the truth!When the brake pad needs to be replaced, basically can be judged from three aspects.
Currently, there are two kinds of brake devices on the market, namely "disc brake" and "drum brake". In addition to a small number of models that also use drum brake (generally front disc and rear drum), most passenger cars use disc brake and most commercial vehicles use drum brake.Disc brake principle is through the brake caliper control brake pad, with which the clamping brake disc to achieve the purpose of braking.The principle of drum brake is to make the friction between the drum brake friction plate and the inner side of the wheel rotating brake drum through the hydraulic device, so as to have the braking effect.And brake pad as with the brake disc friction, is constantly produced wear, when should change the brake pad.
Many people disagree about when the brakes should be replaced.Some people say that 30-40,000km will be replaced, and some people say not so early, 100,000km can also be changed under normal circumstances, it is recommended to replace a brake pad 40-60,000km, how to judge whether the brake pad needs to be replaced?
First, see thickness: the simplest way is to see the dashboard tips, when the brake pad indicator light is always on, it is necessary to timely replace the brake pad, we can often observe the thickness of the brake pad, to know.Typically, a new pair of brake pads is about 1.5cm thick. If your brake pad is less than 0.5cm thick, consider replacing it.
Second: listen to the sound, if the light brake accompanied by a "iron against iron" filmy sound (may also be the brake pad in the beginning of installation run-in effect), the brake pad must be immediately replaced.Because the limit mark on both sides of the brake pad has directly rubbed the brake pad, proving that the brake pad has exceeded the limit.Encounter this kind of circumstance, replace brake pad at the same time should cooperate the check of brake disc, appear this kind of sound when often brake disc has been damaged.
Third: the brakes with feeling, when our brakes brake pads thinning effect will be affected, the deeper stepped on the brake plate is needed to achieve the original braking effect, feel braking effect weakened obviously, a lot of people feel the brakes become soft, can not have a snub, that prompts you to timely replacement of brake pads, this method is relatively abstract, feels there may be some uncertain, so it is very important to develop a good habits of introspection.In addition, lower brake performance will lead to increased brake oil consumption, so the replacement of brake pads should focus on checking the condition of brake oil.
