How Do I know?
Its important to note that there are two ways to determine whether or not your car brake pads or disk pads (red) will need to be replaced.
If you see that the depth of the pad is less that 1/4 inch. Start planning on a Brake Pad Replacement. You need to replace it soon!
If you see that its less than 1/8 inch, then there isn’t any time to waste. You are getting really close on damaging the disk / rotor (green). You need to ASAP.
If you are hearing a screeching sound when you put your foot on the brakes, this is a bad sign. You are overdue for a brake reline or brake pads.
But, if it sounds more like scraping or grinding of metal (like metal to metal), then you are damaging your rotors
. You need to immediately get the brakes fixed. If you are lucky, you will just need to get the rotors resurfaced. But if judged by the damage that the rotors must be replaced, then major damage to the rotors has occured. Damaged Rotors are primary reason for costly brake repair and will increase the cost of the brake repair by 400%.
Understand, changing your brake pads too soon is much better than changing them too late. That way you will avoid more expensive repairs as well as unsafe driving!
