When to change brake pads and discs?

The main active safety system of a vehicle are the brakes, they are in charge of slowing down and stopping it, so it is important to know when to maintain the braking system.

Brake fluid level: When we see that the brake fluid drops, it is better that we check the pads, since when they wear out, the route they must take until they can rub against the discs is greater.

Presence of noise: many pads have a small metallic warning light that warns when they are worn, producing a high-pitched sound when braking, high-end vehicles may have a light indicator on the dashboard, which is activated some time in advance to let us know that the pads are arriving to its end.

Delay in braking: When we begin to notice that we have to press the brake pedal more and more deeply because the car takes longer to stop and the braking efficiency is not the same, it is time to go to the workshop.

One of the big questions when changing pads is choosing the right ones, they are classified into several families according to their composition: Semi-metallic, Metallic, Ceramic, etc. It is essential to define the type of use (private or public service). , because each compound is designed to provide the best, not only in terms of performance, but also in terms of wear.

Pads are part of the disc brake system in vehicles. They are the friction materials that when in contact with the disc causes the vehicle to stop when the driver presses the pedal.

What should a good brake pad have?

A good brake pad should have 3 basic characteristics: good grip, good durability and comfort in braking. Depending on how the vehicle is used, the appropriate pads must be selected. There are pads whose main characteristic is the duration, and in others it is the comfort of braking. The ideal pill will depend on the use, make and model of the vehicle.

If we talk about vehicles for personal use, the most common type is the ceramic tablet for comfort. On the other hand, for heavier duty vehicles, the semi-metallic pad is a good option for the durability it offers.

When to change brake pads?

How to know when to change your windshield wiper blades

The windshield wiper blades are elements that do not need frequent maintenance, but it is important to pay attention to the signs that indicate that they need to be changed. When they deteriorate, they can affect visibility and be a great risk when driving, so we must be careful that they work correctly and are in optimal conditions.

These are some of the signs

  • They make noise: if you hear a strange sound when activated, it means that the rubber is worn, since it begins to deteriorate over time.
  • They do not clean well: if the brushes do not clean well, it may be due to wear on the rubber or because the brush-holder arm is not exerting enough pressure on the glass.
  • Fogged glass: if the glass fogs up on the outside, it is because the rubber has hardened due to wear and tear and does not allow pressure to be applied to the glass.
  • Striations: if the blade has cuts, it will not allow proper cleaning and visibility will be lost on the road.
