Wearing out of brake pads depends on various factors and there is no set interval for the change. As a part of service, brake fluid used in hydraulic brake systems needs to be replaced every 2 years or 20,000 kms. Brake bleeding, a routine part of brake service, is performed to get rid of air bubbles from the brake lines. Below are the advantages of changing brake pads on time –
5) Stopping Power – Brake pads provide friction on the rotors which translates to stopping power of a vehicle. A shorter braking distance can help one avoid accidents by stopping the vehicle in time.
4) Improves Life Of Brake Components – Changing brake pads on time prevents stress or damage on other brake components. It greatly improves the life of rotors.
