How often should I change my brake pads?

 change my brake pads

Brake pads should be changed once between 30,000 and 50,000 km.

When the vehicle is used for more than 30,000 km, the brake pads should be observed regularly to check the actual thickness of the brake pads and ensure that they are replaced immediately after use to the limit.

Brake pads are one of the important parts of the vehicle’s brake system.

The pressure of the brake system is transmitted to the brake pads through the piston distributor pump, and the braking force generated by the friction between the brake pads and the brake discs makes the vehicle slow down or stop.

There is no specific time requirement for brake pads to be replaced. The actual thickness of the brake pads is usually measured to determine if they need to be replaced. Brake pads consist of three parts: the steel plate, the bonding material, and the friction material.

The effective part of the brake pad is the friction material part. After the friction material layer is worn out, the braking performance of the brake pad will decrease, so when the brake pad wears down to the bonding layer, it needs to be replaced.
