Jun 19, 2017

     The replacement of the brake pads depends on how long your gasket has been used in your car life. Generally if you have to exercise more than 80,000 km away when the brake pads need to be replaced. But if you hear from your wheel friction sound, no matter how much mileage you have, you should replace the brake pads. If you have not yet grasped how many kilometers you have exercised, you may go to the store for free replacement mats, buy brake pads from them or install them in a car service shop.Brake Pad

    1. Under normal driving conditions for each travel 5000 km on the brake shoe check once, not only to check the remaining thickness, but also check the wiper wear state, both sides of the same degree of wear and tear, the return is free, etc., found abnormal The situation must be dealt with immediately. 2. brake shoe is generally made of iron liner and friction material composed of two parts, must not wait for friction material part of the grinding did not change the shoe. For example, Jetta's front brake shoe, the new film thickness of 14 mm, and the replacement of the ultimate thickness of 7 mm, which includes 3 mm more iron liner thickness and nearly 4 mm of friction material thickness. Some vehicles with brake shoes alarm function, once reached the wear limit, the instrument will alarm tips to replace the shoe. To achieve the use of the limit of the shoe must be replaced, even if still can use for some time, will reduce the effect of braking, driving safety. 3. Replace the original spare parts to provide the brake pads, the only way to make the brake pads and brakes between the best braking effect, wear the smallest. 4. When replacing the shoe, you must use the special tool to turn the brake cylinder back. Can not use other crowbar hard pressure back, so easy to lead to brake caliper guide screw bending, so that brake pads stuck. 5. After the replacement, be sure to step on a few feet brakes to eliminate the gap between the shoe and brake disc, resulting in the first foot did not brake, prone to accidents. 6. brake shoe replacement, the need to run 200 km in order to achieve the best braking effect, just change the shoe should be careful to drive Brake Pad

    How to replace the brake pads:1. Release the handbrake and loosen the hub screw that will need to change the brake wheel (note that it is loose and do not completely screw it down). Jack up with a jack. Then remove the tires. Before moving the brake, it is best to use a special brake cleaning fluid spray in the brake system to spray, to avoid powder into the respiratory tract, affecting health. 2. Remove the screw of the brake caliper (for some of the cars, as long as one of them is unscrewed, and then the other one can be loose) 3. The brakes will be linked with a rope to avoid damage to the brake pipe. Then remove the old brake pads. 4. Use the c-type clamp to push the brake piston back to the inside. (Please note that before this step, first set off the hood, the brake oil box cover unscrew, because the top brake piston, the brake fluid surface will rise). Install the new brakes. 5. Pull the brake caliper back and the caliper screw to the required torque. Tighten the tires and tighten the hub screws slightly. 6. Lower the jack and tighten the hub screws. 7. Because in the process of changing the brake pads, we will brake the top of the piston to the inside, just start when the brakes will be empty. After a few steps on the just fine.Brake Pad
