Don’t Ignore Your Volkswagen’s Brake Pads

Getting a brake pad replacement involves a lot more than just swapping out old pads for new ones. It gives a Volkswagen certified technician a chance to inspect your entire brake system to spot any other potential problem issues as well. And that could mean the difference between having great stopping power or losing control of your vehicle when it matters the most.



Signs the Brake Pads on Your Volkswagen Need Attention

There are both built-in features as well as consumable features that help a driver know the brake pads probably need to be looked at if not replaced. The most common symptom or signal is a metallic squealing sound when the brakes are applied at slow speeds. This is due to the brake pads’ actual material, including brake parts that cause that noise to warn of their low level and need for replacement soon. A second signal is due to more of the pads’ use than intended, such as slamming on the brakes. As the pads wear, they create more room and need more pressure applied. A softness or sponginess in the braking is related and also signals it’s time to get a service done. A grinding sound is a very serious issue. The rotors are starting to be damaged, most likely because the pads have worn down too much.


Front Brake Pad Replacement

The front brakes take a hard amount of abuse because this is where much of the stopping power is applied, slowing down the vehicle’s weight as it’s moving. Typically, the front brake pads will wear down faster than the rear set, but both are important.


Rear Brake Pad Replacement

The rear brake pads help reduce the strain on the front set, creating a slowing and dragging effect on the rear wheels, which in turn helps slow the overall motion of the car. The rear brake pads won’t wear down as fast, but they should still be inspected regularly and kept in good shape.

Don’t Ignore Regular Brake System Checks

Your brakes are the key factor that helps you slow down quickly. Unlike a manual transmission, where a driver could also downshift and use the gears to slow down, automatic transmissions have no such option. So, the brakes are it when it comes to stopping power. Ignoring or not checking on your brakes regularly during services is a recipe for far more costly problems later.
