Depending on how you drive and the types of road you travel on will determine when you need brake pads replacing. If you mainly cover motorway miles you might not need a brake pad replacement for anything up to 60,000 miles, however, if your car mostly drives around the city centre, the brake pads might need replacing at a mere 25,000 miles.
One thing you should never do is let the pads run too low as this can score the discs and result in a more expensive brake repair. Here at West End Mechanical Services Ltd, we recommend you replace the brake pads on your car when they reach a minimum thickness of 3mm to ensure the safety of the vehicle and prevent any damage to the discs.
We offer a high quality brake pad replacement for any make of car
A visual check of your brakes is included as part of an interim service whilst a comprehensive brake inspection is completed during a full service.
