When should you replace your

There are a few signs you should look out for when driving that will be a clear indicator it is time to have new brake pads fitted to your vehicle:

You hear your brakes squeaking or grinding when you push the brake pedal. This is a sign that they are worn down and could be damaging your rotors, making repairs even more expensive.

You notice your braking distances have become longer and your brakes are less responsive when applying them. This could be a sign of worn brake pads or that fluid is low.

Many modern vehicles will have an Antilock Braking System (ABS) light and a brake system warning light, which will appear on the dashboard if there is an issue.

You can inspect your brake pads yourself, if you look between the spokes of your wheels and the brake pad appears to be worn to less than a ¼ inch, a replacement is needed.
