Replacing your brake pads and discs at the same time brings several benefits:
Avoid doubling down on repair costs. It's easier to replace brake pads than brake discs, so it doesn't add much time to the repair at all. As such, it can actually work out cheaper to replace your brake pads and discs together.
Better braking performance. If your brake pads or discs are older than the other, your brakes become less efficient. If you replace the parts together, your car will come to a much smoother stop more regularly. On top of that, braking will be quieter and more comfortable because all the parts are in-sync.
Increased safety and lifespan of parts. Partly worn brake pads can damage your brand-new discs and cause them to wear down much quicker than they should. This might mean that you need to replace your brake pads and discs more frequently than you should.
However, it is also possible to replace your brake pads without also fitting new brake discs. Pads have a shorter lifespan, so your discs may still be strong and healthy even if the pads are almost entirely worn.
Brake discs usually last around 50,000 miles. However, if you brake gently and sensibly, they can last up to 120,000 miles.
Most manufacturers recommend specific intervals for brake disc replacements. You can find these in your vehicle handbook. On top of that, most modern cars have brake warning lights that alert you when your brakes are very worn. If you see this warning light, make sure you book an inspection to find the cause of the problem as soon as possible.
On top of that, we recommend checking your brake discs every 10,000 miles to ensure they're still in good condition.
There are a few key signs that indicate when your car needs a brake disc replacement:
Screeching or grinding noise. This happens when the friction pads on either your brake pads or discs wears down and there is metal-on-metal contact. This will also mean that your car has minimal braking power so you should avoid driving it until you get your brake discs replaced.
Car pulling to one side or vibrating under braking. This usually means that either one brake is stronger than the other or that one of the parts is warped. Again, this can be very dangerous and you should avoid driving your car as much as possible.
Front brake discs showing signs of damage. If you look at your brake discs through your tyres, you may be able to see some damage on the discs. If they look worn or visibly damaged, book a replacement at a garage near you now.
Warning light on dashboard. When the friction lining of your brakes wears down to an unsafe level, it reaches the wear indicator. When this happens, a warning light shows on your dashboard, informing you that you either need new brake discs, pads or both.
Your car can also exhibit the above symptoms when you need new brake pads. If you're unsure what your exact issue is, book a FREE Visual Inspection at a garage near you for an expert opinion. After the technician has found the problem with your car, they will provide a transparent quote for the repair but you never pay a penny until after they have completed all the work.
