How do I know if my brake pads are worn out?

Share:

There are several signs that indicate your brake pads may be worn out:

Squeaking or Squealing Noises: If you hear a high-pitched squealing or squeaking noise when you apply the brakes, it’s a sign that your brake pads are worn down and need to be replaced.
Grinding Sounds: If you hear a grinding noise when you apply the brakes, it means that the brake pads have worn down completely, and the metal components of the brake system are now grinding against each other. This is dangerous and can cause severe damage to the brake system.
Reduced Braking Performance: If your vehicle takes longer to come to a stop, or if the brake pedal feels spongy or less responsive, it could indicate that your brake pads are worn and need to be replaced.
Visible Wear: If you can see that the brake pads are less than 1/4 inch thick, it’s time to have them replaced.
If you suspect that your brake pads are worn, it’s important to have them inspected by a professional as soon as possible to ensure the safety of your vehicle and those around you.
