What are brake discs?

Brake discs provide the surface for the brake pads to come into contact with in order to slow the motion of the wheel.

How does a brake disc work and what are the components?

A brake disc is usually either a solid mild steel disc that is mounted between the road wheel and the vehicle's wheel hub or two solid discs cast together with fins in between them to keep them cool under braking. These latter discs are known as vented discs. Some high end vehicles now use carbon or ceramic rather than mild steel as these are generally lighter and more robust - although a lot more expensive!

Some discs are manufactured with a groove pattern or have drilled holes in them, this aids cooling but the main reason is to allow the escape of the gasses produced by the friction between the disc and pads under heavy or prolonged braking.

When the brakes are applied, the two brake pads either side of the disc are forced into the disc surface and “clamp” on to it. The friction slows the speed in which the disc is rotating and thereby slows the vehicle.

How do you know there is something wrong with your brake discs?

  • If you experience vibration whilst braking.
  • If the car start to pull to one side under braking.
  • If you notice (or are advised on an MOT) that the disc surfaces have developed scores, pit holes or cracks.

Please note, if you see a surface of fine rust on a mild steel disc after rain, this is quite normal and will rub off once the brakes are used a couple of times.

When should you consider replacing a brake disc?

Brake discs will gradually become thinner due to the friction between them and the brake pads.

This wear and tear can be hastened by inappropriate brake pads being fitted, worn brake pads and excessive hard braking. If you can see a rough surface you brake pads will feel it! It will be like running the pads over a cheese grater and they will wear out very quickly!

If the brake discs have worn out prematurely or if you are experiencing trouble under braking, it is advisable to seek the help of an expert to investigate the problem and, if necessary, replace the discs as soon as possible. Driving with brakes that do not function properly can, of course, lead to dangerous situations on the road.

Brake discs are supplied and fitted in axle pairs (i.e. front or rear). It is equally important to have new brake pads fitted at the same time otherwise any wear pattern on the pads from the previous discs could severely reduce the contact area between the two. This is so important that no mechanic would consider doing otherwise.

How common are brake disc replacements?

Due to the wear and tear on the surfaces, discs are frequently changed during the life time of a vehicle. Usually this is mileage related, but also the vehicles use and weight can mean more frequent changes.

You should expect to have it done once your car has covered anything between 15,000 and 50,000 miles.

A visual examination of the braking system of your car is included every time it is serviced

How can I extend the lifetime of my brake discs?

As with most parts of your car, the less pressure you put on any part of your car’s brakes, the longer they will last. If you carry heavy loads frequently, or tow a caravan for example, your brake system will come under greater pressure than it would otherwise and as such the discs may wear prematurely. Therefore, removing unnecessary weight from the vehicle will not only improve your fuel consumption, it will reduce the wear on the brakes.

Also consider your driving style. Anticipating the road conditions ahead, keeping your speed as constant as possible, and thereby avoiding sharp braking are all likely to lengthen the interval between brake disc replacements.

What happens during a brake disc replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake discs.
  • If necessary, the brake discs will be replaced along with new brake pads.
  • Mechanic will check the brake system and, if deemed safe, will do a test drive.

How much does a brake disc replacement cost?

The cost of a brake disc replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your brake disc replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page
