Volkswagen Front Brake Pad Replacement Service

Front Brake Pad Replacement Service in St. Louis Park, MN

Brake pads rub against your wheels to stop your car, so they are obviously important. Since they rub against something, there is some friction, so the pads will eventually wear out. Changing brake pads when they get worn will help you stop when you need to, and will prevent more expensive repairs to your braking system in general. At Luther Westside Volkswagen. in St. Louis Park, MN, our certified technicians use OEM parts in our state-of-the-art facility, so you can be assured of quality. You may also now schedule service online, and we are a short drive from Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnetonka, and Plymouth, MN.

Signs You Need New Brake Pads

Brake pads rub against your rotors on your wheel, and that is what stops your car. There are more parts involved and more maintenance too, but keeping up with the brake pads will save you a lot of worries and keep you safe on the road. Your front brake pads generally wear out faster than your rear brake pads, and may need service more often. Your owner's manual will tell you when the pads should be changed. Here are some symptoms to look for that could mean you should change your pads.

The Dangers Of Delaying Brake Service

If you have any of these symptoms, you should schedule service and have your brakes checked by a professional service technician. Often rotors are also changed when brakes are changed, but if you change the pads early enough you will not have to, and that will save you some money. Vibrating of the steering wheel when you brake is a sign the rotors may need replacing. If you do not replace the pads, eventually the rotors will be damaged and that is a more expensive repair. You could damage your whole braking system by not changing the pads, and worse, you could have a total brake failure.
