Brake Pad Replacement Service & Cost

What are the Brake Pads all about?

Depending on your car’s brake system, it may use between 4 to 8 brake pads. When you step on the brake pedal, the master cylinder sends fluid under pressure to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, causing friction that slows down the car. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads wear out and become thinner. If the thickness of brake pads is less than 3mm, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive (city driving tends to wear pads out quicker) brake pads usually last between 30,000 to 35,000 miles.

Some vehicles (e.g., BMWs) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system. In these vehicles, you will also need to replace the brake sensors as part of the brake pad service.

Brakes-Service

Keep in mind:

Brake pads are replaced in pairs during a brake service. This means if you choose front brake pads, both front wheels should get new brake pads. The same situation applies for rear wheels.

How it's done:

  • Inspect brake pads.
  • Install new pads if thickness is less than 3mm.
  • Inspect: rotors, calipers, hoses, and brake fluid condition.
  • Perform a basic safety inspection.
  • Test drive the vehicle.

Our recommendation:

Your mechanic should measure the thickness of brake pads every 12 to 15 months. Get your brake system inspected if the brake-warning light is on.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Pads?

  • Grinding, squealing or screeching noise when you apply brakes.
  • Brake pedal is lower than normal.
  • Brake or low-pad warning light is on.
  • Vibration in the steering wheel.

How important is this service?

Regular maintenance and replacement of your brake pads is a very important safety measure. If you drive your vehicle with worn-down brake pads, braking distances increase, you risk damage to the brake rotors (which are more expensive than brake pads), and most importantly, you put yourself and others at risk. Brake repair should be completed if the brake pads are less than 3mm thick to ensure safe operation of your car.

Overall experience is just okay; however, I felt a sense of hustle and hurry in order to move to next (appointment? maybe, i just didn't know). The core work was done; however, like this one, the dashboard indicator lights was not set off while I was told by the technician that it was all done. I knew that it took a while for him to work on the indicator..Anyway, the dashboard light (break wear indicator light) was still not set off which should be done while replacing the pad and sensor. While there maybe other things that I would complain about, I will keep that off the line at this review for this task.

This was my first time using "Your Mechanic". I found the website when shopping for new brake pads. My dealership wanted hundreds more. Local mechanics wanted me to waste a half day or better just to get a price quote. On a leap of faith I gave this seemingly to-good-to-be-true company a shot. I booked an appointment, surrendered my credit card info and hoped for the best. Immediately, my appointment was confirmed with time, date, original quote, Andy's information and everything else I needed. The next day, Andy called ahead on his way. When he arrived, he located my car in the lot, explained the process and answered all my questions. I handed over my key and walked back to my office fully expecting a call in a couple hours to tell me home much more work needed to be done and that my estimated cost would be twice as high. What happened was: Andy finished early, called me down, walked me through everything he had done. Only after I was fully informed and satisfied did he ask me to review the invoice and sign - for LESS than the original quote. Now, only by a few dollars, but still less! In addition to LOWERING the cost and finishing early, I was emailed a link to a VISUAL and VERBAL inspection report, a written quote I had asked for regarding another area on my car and his advice regarding that work. Now relieved and beginning to believe this service was legit I began to praise Andy and his company. I shared how many people were looking down from our offices wondering what was going on with my car. I explained I would be sharing this experience with all of them and writing his review online and sharing all over social media. Andy is polite, patient and professional. He put me at ease right away. His empathy and knowledge made me feel I had made the right decision from the very beginning. Your Mechanic is my first call going forward. Check out their services and reviews. This is the future of vehicle maintenance and repairs. Thank you, Andy - job exceptionally well done! Chuck from Kansas City, MO
