How often should the car's Brake Pad be replaced
- By:Trade Bosnian
The car's Brake Pad is a very important part of the car. It ensures our driving safety, checking and updating Brake Pad in time is very important to our driving safety. Statistics show that more than 70% of common traffic accidents are caused by not braking in time. If there is a problem with the brakes, the possibility of danger is greatly increased. The Brake Pad of a car is generally replaced every 50,000 kilometers, so the Brake Shoe needs to be checked every 5,000 kilometers. Not only check the remaining thickness of the Brake Pad, but also evaluate the wear of the Brake Shoe to see if the damage is the same on both sides. Once any abnormality is found, it must be dealt with immediately.
1. Brake Shoe is composed of iron liner and friction material. Do not wait until the friction material is polished before forcibly replacing the Brake Shoe. The thickness of the new sheet is 14mm, while the limit thickness of the replacement sheet is 7mm, of which the thickness of the iron liner is more than 3mm, and the thickness of the friction material is close to 4mm. Some vehicles are equipped with a Brake Shoe alarm function. Once the wear limit of the brake shoe is reached, the instrument will remind you to replace the brake shoe. Once the brake shoe reaches the limit of use, it must be replaced immediately. Even if it can still be used, it will affect driving safety.
2. When conditions permit, replace the spare Brake Pad provided by the original factory, so as to achieve the best braking effect between the Brake Pad and the brake disc, and minimize wear and tear.
3. After replacing the Brake Shoe, be sure to step on the brake several times to eliminate the gap between the Brake Shoe and the brake disc to prevent accidents.
4. After replacing the Brake Shoe, it needs to run in for 200 kilometers to achieve the best braking effect. New shoes should be driven with care.
