Brake pads : the indispensable
Don’t forget about your brake pads!
Brake pads are often overlooked when it comes to car maintenance. Found in vehicles which use disc brakes, brake pads glide against the discs to facilitate braking. Should grating noises, difficulty operating the brake pedal, drifting and/or engine management lights become noticeable by the driver, the brake pads may be in need of maintenance. They should be changed to ensure passenger safety, keep safe braking distances, and avoid the premature deterioration of the discs.
You should advise your clients that brake pads should be replaced every 30,000 – 40,000 km travelled on average. You should also let your customers know that, in cities, the brakes are applied more often, and so require more regular maintenance. Brake pads are always changed as a pair, and it is recommended that brake fluid should also be changed when pads are replaced.
