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.

Emmette was truly outstanding. Due to particular complications I was having with another mechanic, my car was in worse condition than before that mechanic attempted to service my vehicle.. When I called and complained they had scheduled Emmette to come out the next day. However, Emmette interrupted his dinner with his family, found the parts I needed where the other mechanic failed, purchased them out of pocket to satisfy the customer needs, and repaired my vehicle in a timely and spectacular manner. Truly Emmette deserves recognition for his work, I couldn't have been happier with Emmette. I hope my original mechanic was an abnormality to be addressed. Emmette has set a new standard for me for his work on my vehicle and is representative of the experience I had hoped for and more with YourMechanic. All in all, I am extremely pleased with the price, the convenience that Emmette had given me and of course his professional, resourceful, dedicated work and behavior. I will most definitely be requesting him again when I use YourMechanic.

Fred should have test driven the vehicle more. The Emissions Shop warning light came on the first time I drove the car. The Other Inspection service was to ensure a good connection on glow plug 4 since the computer read out said it wasn't getting a consistent ground. Fred also did not arrive with the valve cover gasket or a spate glow plug wire. Now another YourMechanic is going to need to revisit the car, rip apart the engine to get to the glow plugs and install a new ~$15 cable. All could likely have been averted.
