Our dealership extends its many services to the Westborough, Massachusetts community, and several surrounding communities. We routinely provide our Volkswagen brake pad replacement service to drivers in the area. Routine brake pad replacements are necessary for your vehicle, especially during the winter months when stopping power is essential.
A brake pad replacement is a routine service where our technicians disassemble part of the brake system to access the brake pads attached to the vehicle's brake calipers. Once they have gotten to the brake pads of the vehicle, they will remove the brake pads and replace them with new OEM Volkswagen brake pads. The front and rear brake pads are typically different from one another due to their role under braking conditions. The front brake pads on a vehicle tend to be larger to handle higher amounts of heat and greater braking forces.
The brake pads of your vehicle will provide several signs that they need to be changed. Among these signs are high-pitched squeaking or grinding noises that will happen as you are braking. Additionally, you may feel vibrations in your vehicle's brake pedal if your brake pads or brake rotors are worn unevenly. You need to address these signs when you notice them to prevent issues with the brake system of your vehicle. Brake pad replacements and brake system services prevent drivers from experiencing brake system failure and instances where their brakes don't work accordingly. If your vehicle's brake system is routinely serviced by trained professionals, then the chances of it completely failing are low.
You should have a front brake pad replacement and a rear brake pad replacement done at least once every 50,000 miles that you travel. Brake pads have a wide range of life spans due to their many designs and materials, but 50,000 miles is the industry standard. Refer to your vehicle's owner's manual to determine what its manufacturer recommends for the model.
