Volkswagen brake repair is essential to your Volkswagen because brake pads are consumable items and will eventually need to be replaced if you drive the car. Even on the popular VW, it is essential to replace the brake pads at the appropriate time. In this Blog, we will explain the timing of replacing Volkswagen’s brake pads, as well as ways to extend the life of your brake pads. In the first place, people ask What is the schedule for Volkswagen brake repair or brake pad replacement? Many people who drive a Volkswagen have probably seen or heard that the brake pads need to be replaced. However, many people may not know what brake pads are in the first place, why they need to be replaced, or how to determine the appropriate time to replace them.

Here we will explain the role of brake pads and the criteria for determining replacement.

Role of Brake Pads

Volkswagen Brake pads are parts that operate the brakes of your car. They are a set of two and are installed to sandwich a part called the “brake rotor” inside the wheel.

The brake rotor rotates with the tire and wheel as the tire turns. When the driver steps on the brakes, two brake pads are activated and firmly pinch the brake rotor from both sides. This system uses the strong frictional force applied to the brake rotor by the brake pads to stop the tire rotation.

How Long do Volkswagen Benz brake Pads last?

You can get your Volkswagen inspected to check if your brake pads can work fine. New brake pads have a thickness of about 7mm to 10mm, but there is no item regarding the thickness of brake pads in the vehicle inspection. If the brakes work at the inspection site, it will be determined that there is no problem. In other words, as long as the brakes work properly, your brake pads will work if they are worn down to 1mm thick.

However, it is true that the thinner the brake pads, the less effective the brakes will be. If you don’t replace your brakes just because they pass the vehicle inspection, your brakes may not work in an emergency, which could lead to a serious accident.

Short Guide for Volkswagen Brake Pad Replacement

The more you use your brakes, the thinner your brake pads become due to friction with the brake rotor. Brake pads must be replaced at the appropriate time to continue driving safely. You can easily know when it’s time to replace your brakes by checking the mileage, the thickness of the brake pads, and the presence or absence of abnormal noises while driving.

Consider from mileage

(brake pads generally wear out by 1mm for every 10,000km driven). It is recommended to check your Volkswagen brake pads every 50,000 km because pads wear out after 5mm thickness.

Check brake pad thickness

By visually checking the thickness of your brake pads, you can more accurately know when to replace them.

Check the sound of the brake pads

When the brake pads wear out, a metal part called a “wear indicator” that is attached to the brake pads may come into contact with the brake rotor, producing a “squeak” sound.

Check the amount of brake fluid (oil)

Every time the brake pads move, the brake fluid also decreases, so when this oil level gets low, it’s a sign that it’s time to replace the brake pads.

Check the Brake disc

In addition to brake pads and brake fluid, you also need to be careful about brake discs. Brake discs can become rusty if they get wet with rain. Rust itself occurs universally on metal parts, but when you step on the brakes, the rust is removed by friction with the brake pads, and the brake disc itself also wears out.

Are there any strange noises when driving a Volkswagen?

Many Volkswagen models have a metal part called a “pad wear indicator.” This part is attached to the brake pad, and when the pad wears out, the metal part makes an abnormal noise. If you hear an abnormal brake noise from the undercarriage, the brake pads may be worn out. Replace your brake pads as soon as possible.

In addition, some Volkswagen cars do not have pad wear indicators but instead have electronic components attached to the brake pads that emit a warning light when the brake pads wear out. If the brake warning light lights up on the instrument panel (instrument panel in front of the driver’s seat), replace the brake pads as soon as possible.

How to extend the life of Volkswagen brake pads?

Replacing your Volkswagen brake pads is not cheap when you include the cost of parts and labor. From a cost-effective perspective, it is best to extend the life of brake pads as much as possible so that they can be used safely and for a long time. Some steps are followed to extend the life of your brake pads.

1. Make active use of downshifts

Using the brakes naturally shortens the life of the brake pads. In particular, applying the brakes just before a traffic light can cause the brake pads to wear down very quickly. Simply taking advantage of downshifts and using engine braking to slow down can go a long way in extending the life of your brake pads.

2. Don’t step on the brakes unnecessarily

Avoiding unnecessary braking is also a good way to extend the life of your brake pads.

Not applying the brakes unnecessarily also means not excessively speeding, which leads to safe driving. It can also be said to be a good method from the perspective of improving fuel efficiency.

3. Utilize coasting

Coasting refers to the act of disengaging the clutch when the accelerator is released and idling without using engine braking. This coasting is also called coasting, and it consumes almost no fuel and reduces wear on brake pads. Making good use of coasting in appropriate situations is a good way to extend the life of your brake pads.
