Aug. 29, 2020

How long can the brake pads last?


The life of brake pads is difficult to define with a clear number of kilometers or time.Because the material of the Actros Brake Pad is different, everyone has different driving habits, driving conditions are different, and the frequency of using the brakes is different, so the wear of the brake pads will be different. Some people need to replace the brake pads for 20,000 to 30,000 kilometers, and some people may not need to replace the brake pads for 100,000 kilometers.


In fact, less brake application is also one of the core of fuel-efficient driving. In addition, the degree of wear of the front and rear brake pads of the same car may also be different (generally the front brakes wear quickly), and there will be slight differences between automatic transmission and manual transmission (automatic When blocking a traffic jam, the brakes are often released and rubbed). In short, it is impossible to generalize.

How to judge whether the brake pads need to be replaced?


1.Look


The easiest way is to look at the prompt on the instrument panel. When the brake pad indicator is always on, you need to replace the brake pads in time. Of course, we can also observe the thickness of the brake pads at ordinary times, so as to know what to do. Usually the thickness of a brand new brake pad is about 1.5cm. If your brake pads are less than 5mm thick, consider replacing them. Due to the angle of your own viewing, there will still be errors, and the brake pads on the inside are sometimes difficult to see, so it is best to let the master look at it for you every time you maintain. Of course, some cars have special wheels, and the brake pads may not be visible, so you need to remove the tires or go to a repair shop for inspection.


2. Things to pay attention to


Measurement inspection is the safest way, but some phenomena can also indicate the degree of wear of our brake pads. When you hear a creaking metal rubbing sound when you brake, there may be a problem with the brake pads, so check it as soon as possible.


3. Does it feel reliable?


It is not very reliable to judge whether the brake pads need to be replaced by the feeling of stepping on the brakes. When the brakes are weak or the braking force is insufficient, there may also be problems with the brake pipelines, which involve many reasons. So it's better to see, seeing is believing.


What kind of brake pads to replace


The materials of the brake pads are different. Common ones include Semi-Metallic Brake Pad, non-asbestos organic brake pads, Ceramic Brake Pad, etc. The performance is also from low to high. For most of the friends, you can choose the same material and specifications as the original factory when replacing. If you want to improve some performance, you can also choose ceramic brake pads
