How To Use Brake Pads Better?

May. 19, 2020

In the brake system of a car, the brake pad is the most critical safety component and one of the most commonly used components in daily driving. Regular maintenance is essential. Industry insiders said that the daily maintenance of brake pads is relatively simple, mainly used for regular inspections, pay attention to the thickness of the brake pads, replace the brake pads in time, and reduce emergency braking can extend its service life.

Generally, the effective use of brake pads is about 40,000 kilometers, which increases or decreases slightly according to personal usage habits. As urban driving traffic is heavy, the corresponding losses are relatively large. Owners should reduce emergency braking as much as possible to make the brake pads have a longer service life.

In addition, it is also recommended that the owner regularly go to the 4S shop to check whether the card issuer and other related parts are loose or displaced. Loose hairpins will cause different wear on the left and right brake pads, which will shorten the service life. In addition, it is necessary to maintain the entire vehicle brake system, increase lubrication, and check for problems such as parts rust. It is recommended that the owner change the brake fluid once a year, because the water consumption of the brake fluid will exceed 3% after one year of use. Excessive moisture can easily cause high temperature and water vaporization during braking, which reduces the braking effect of the car.

At present, most cars are equipped with brake pad warning lights. Usually, the car owner will judge whether the brake pad should be replaced according to whether the brake warning light on the dashboard is lit. In fact, the warning light is the last bottom line, this time indicating that the brake pads have almost lost their function. After the brake pads are completely worn out, the brake fluid will drop sharply. At this time, the metal base of the brake pad and the brake pad are already in the state of iron grinding. You will see bright iron cuts near the edge of the tire rim. The loss of the hub is great. Therefore, it is recommended that you replace the brake pads before the end of their service life. You cannot rely on warning lights to determine.

Most cars use front disc and rear drum brake structures. Under normal circumstances, the front brake shoes wear relatively quickly, while the service time of the rear brake shoes is relatively long. Attention should be paid to some problems in daily inspection and maintenance.The Car Brake Pad Supplier is committed to introduce you to the following aspects:

1. Under normal driving conditions, check the brake shoes every 5000 kilometers, not only to check the remaining thickness, but also to check the wear of the brake shoes, whether the wear on both sides is the same, whether they can return freely, etc. This situation must be dealt with immediately.

2. The brake shoe usually consists of two parts: iron lining and friction material. Do not wait for the friction material to wear before changing shoes. For example, brake pads (such as Actros Brake Pad) will have a certain thickness, if the thickness is less than the safe range, it will be very dangerous. Some vehicles have a brake shoe warning function. Once the wear limit is reached, the instrument will issue an alarm prompting to replace the shoe. Hoofs that have reached the limit of use must be replaced. Even if it can still be used for a period of time, it will reduce the braking effect and affect driving safety.

3. When replacing the brake pads provided by the original spare parts, only in this way can the braking effect between the brake pads and the brake disc be optimal and the wear can be minimized.

4. When replacing the brake shoe, you must use a special tool to push the brake cylinder back. Do not push it back with another crowbar, otherwise it may cause the brake caliper guide screw to bend, causing the brake pad to get stuck.

5. After replacement, be sure to step on the brakes of a few feet to eliminate the gap between the brake shoes and the brake disc, resulting in the first foot not braking, which is prone to accidents.

The Passenger Car Brake Pad Supplier here reminds you that after replacing the brake shoes, you need to travel 200 kilometers to achieve the best braking effect. New shoes must be driven carefully.
