Volkswagen Rear Brake Pad Replacement Service

Rear Brake Pad Replacement

If you want to keep your family safe and protect your car, your brakes are one of your most important maintenance items. This includes periodically replacing your rear brake pads. When you press your brake pedal, your brakes press up against your wheels, and the friction brings your car to a stop. Your brake pads are what protect the main components of your brakes and wheels from grinding against each other and wearing out.

Signs of Needing Brake Pad Replacement

Your brake pads absorb the friction of braking, but they don't last forever. The rubbing wears your brake pads out over time. As they start to wear down, they get thinner, and you have to press your brakes harder to get the same amount of stopping. This eventually reduces your stopping distance and could put you at greater risk of an accident. If your brake pads get too thin, they may also no longer provide protection to your brake rotors and other parts and could force you to spend your hard-earned money on a much more expensive and preventable repair.

What's the Difference Between Front and Rear Brake Pads?

Your rear brake pads are often slightly larger than your front brake pads. This means that a rear brake pad replacement can cost a little more than a front brake pad replacement even though the work is similar. The good news is that your rear brake pads often last longer. During normal driving conditions, your front brake pads take up much more braking force than your rear brake pads. Depending on your driving habits, you may go two or three front brake pad replacements before you need to replace your rear brake pads. However, your rear brake pads are still important to protecting your car and allowing you to stop safely, so you can't ignore them.
