Found in disc brake systems, VW brake pads are a flat piece of steel with a thick friction material layer on one side. By pushing the brake pedal, the driver engages the disc brake system. This pressure acts on the master cylinder, which simulates a piston inside the braking fluid. A pair of brake pads are pressed against a brake disc by the caliper as the fluid travels down the brake lines and into the brake system. The wheel now becomes slower as a result. Your VW's motion is stopped, releasing energy that is then transformed into waste heat that needs to be expelled. This type of brake provides superior stopping capability than drum brakes since the cooling period for the disc is comparatively short. As a result of usage, the friction material layer gets thinner with time, and eventually the brake pads need to be replaced.
VW brake pads are generally replaced every 30,000 to 50,000 miles, however your manufacturer guidelines may give you better guidance for your specific vehicle. Potential issues with brake pads can be indicated from specific noises or feelings that you'll experience while driving. Keep your eyes and ears open for:
- Screaming, squeaking, or grinding noise
- Shaking in your steering wheel or brake pedal
- Taking longer to stop
- Brake warning light
- Visibly thin brake pads
