Maintenance and periodic replacement

One of your car’s key safety features is the braking system. It consists of many different components and materials, but main ones that cause friction are brake discs and brake pads. Both of whom need to be periodically inspected and replaced if needed. Pads and discs are wear and tear items.

Each time you press the brake pedal, there’s a friction generated, which causes material on brake pads and brake discs to wear. To keep your brake system in best working order, it is essential to replace your brake pads and brake discs as required.

Modern-day cars are equipped with wear sensors, which indicates when brake pads need to be replaced. Minimum thickness of the brake disc is indicated on the part itself, or you can be advised on the state of your discs by Tyreland technicians at any of our branches.

When to replace brake pads and discs

At Tyreland we recommend periodic brake inspection every 15-20k kilometres. However, if your car shows off any signs of brake fault, you must immediately perform a brake system check.

Most common signs of faulty brake system are:

  • Vibration when braking
  • Squeaking noise
  • Signs of overheating
  • Warning lights on dashboard

 

At times, checking your brake fluid level can also provide some helpful information about the degree of wear of your brake components. Once your brake components are worn, then the piston inside the calliper has to travel extra distance, to balance the loss of worn pads/discs. This way it absorbs more more brake fluid and potentially causes a dashboard caution light to come on.
