The Signs Your Brake Pads Need to be Replaced

You’ve probably heard of brake pads, but you might not know exactly what they are or how they work. In a nutshell, brake pads are covered with friction material on one side and attached to brake calipers on the other. When you hit the brakes, the caliper presses the pad against the brake rotor mounted on your wheels, which is what causes your vehicle to lose speed.

Most Honda brake pads will last around 50,000 miles before needing to be switched out, but signs yours may require replacing sooner include:

  • Squeaking or Squealing Sound During Braking
  • Grinding Sound During Braking
  • Illuminated Brake Lights When Not Braking
  • Brake Pedal Vibration During Braking

You can also perform a quick visual inspection. If your brakes pads are less than a quarter inch thick, they probably need to be replaced.

The Signs Your Brake Rotors Need to be Replaced

As mentioned above, the brake rotors are fixed to the wheel hub – you should be able to see them just behind the hubcap. They usually need replacing every 30,000 to 70,000 miles, with signs they’ve become worn sooner than expected including:

  • Grinding Sound During Braking
  • Steering Wheel Vibration During Braking

Visual inspections are a little harder with brake rotors than with pads, but you can check for surface cracks. If you notice any, it’s time to schedule servicing.
