How Much Does A Brake Pad Replacement Cost?

The most common issue with a car’s brakes is that they need a brake pad replacement. How much a brake pad replacement costs depends on the make and model of your car as well as its manufacturing date. It also depends on whether you need your front or rear brake pads replaced, and the type of brake pad. A brake pad replacement could cost anywhere from $150 to $450.

What Is A Brake Pad?

Often, people will use the terms gearbox and transmission interchangeably, but they are different things. Your gearbox is a part of your transmission. Your gearbox is what you use to tell your transmission which gear it should be in. Your transmission is comprised of your gearbox, propellor shaft, drive shaft, and differential, and in a manual, your clutch as well. Basically, your transmission ensures power runs from your engine to your gearbox and through to the drive shaft, making your car run.

When To Get Your Brakes Checked

You should get your brakes checked if you notice your braking performance has diminished, there’s a grinding or squealing noise when you brake, or it’s taking longer than usual to bring your vehicle to a stop. Other reasons you should get your brakes checked are if a dashboard warning light is lit or your handbrake isn’t holding your car well.

How Is A Brake Pad Replacement Done?

The car is risen first and the wheels are removed. Our mechanics will then inspect your brake pads and discs. If your brake pads are worn, they’ll be removed. Next, we’ll look at your brake calipers and install new brake pads. Then we refit your wheels and bed the new brake pads in before road testing the car for quality assurance.

Things To Remember

Disc rotors and brake fluid should be checked at the same time as your brake pads — don’t worry, our mechanics make sure to do this. It’s important to note that major brake issues can be prevented with regular servicing.

Why It’s Important To Have Your Brakes Checked

It’s important to get your brakes checked as soon as you notice a change or issue with them. This is so you can ensure your vehicle is stopping reliably, safely, and comfortable and of course for the safety of yourself, your passengers, and others on the road.
