VW Rear Brake Pad Replacement Service

Volkswagen SouthTowne Rear Brake Pad Replacement

At Volkswagen SouthTowne, we have the experience to take care of your rear brake pads. We offer a range of services that will make your brakes feel brand new. If you’re looking for a Volkswagen brake pad replacement in South Jordan, look no further than Volkswagen SouthTowne.


What Is Rear Brake Pad Replacement?

Your rear wheels are equipped with a brake assembly to help bring your vehicle to a stop when you want to. The brake pads are just one part of your rear-end’s braking assembly. If you hear a high-pitched squeal from the rear of your vehicle when you press on the brake pedal, it’s a signal that you require new brake pads. Schedule an appointment with us today, and we’ll inspect your rear brake pads and let you know if it’s time for new ones.


Why Do I Need to Replace My Rear Brake Pads?

Just like many other parts of your car, rear brake pads have a certain amount of time that they can last. Brake pads are designed with a special material to hold-up to the heat and pressure produced when creating friction with the brake rotors to bring your vehicle to a stop. Over time this material will wear away completely, and if you don’t replace the brake pads in time, the metal housing will make contact with the brake rotors and severely damage your Volkswagen’s braking components.


Are Front Brake Pads Different from Rear Brake Pads?

Depending on the year your Volkswagen was made, your front brake pads could be drastically different than the rear. It is common in older model vehicles to see disc brakes in the front and drum brakes being used in the rear. However, today’s modern vehicles are usually equipped with disc brakes in both the front and rear of the vehicle. Your rear brake pads typically last longer than the front, as they don’t bear as much of the weight of the vehicle when braking.


How Often Do I Need to Get My Brake Pads Inspected And/or Replaced?

Every car has a different suggestion when it comes to rear brake maintenance. However, Volkswagen recommends that your rear brake pads be replaced every 30,000 to 70,000 miles. The range for when to change your rear brake pads is so vast due to the uncertainty of driving conditions. If you frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic or haul heavy loads daily, you’ll need to change your rear brake pads sooner than if you didn’t do these things.


Why Choose Volkswagen SouthTowne?
